 CHICAGO, IL
My name is Bryan Rupprecht Jr. I am 17 years old and in my Junior year of high school at Maine South. My father, Bryan Rupprecht Sr. has always been a hard worker and always doing his best to provide for my 11 year old brother, Bradley, and I. He has always treated us with a lot of love and great care.

    There is no doubt in my mind that he cares about us more than anything else in his life. My father has worked hard in a wide range of fields, most recently self employed as a Kitchen and Bath remodeler. He has also worked as a auto mechanic, snow plower, carpenter, plumber and electrician.  I would say my father’s greatest passion was working as a H.S. Baseball Umpire. I have been told that he is a well respected umpire in his career. He is also well known for his boisterous strike and out calls.

       My father has always told us he is a  jack of many trades and master of none. November 20, 2005, is the day his heart  troubles started. It was just weeks after the White Sox had won the world series. It was also just  two days before my brother was born. He was in the basement working on an estimate for a job. Our dog started barking. My Dad went outside to yell at the dog to stop. That’s when he realized, she was barking for a reason. There was a man in his truck. He ran towards the truck and tackled the man. They were fighting when a second man came from behind his trailer and grabbed him from behind around his neck. My dad flipped him over his back and was now fighting two men. This went on for a few minutes, when my father realized there was a car in front of him in the alley. When he  got a look inside the car, he realized a lot of his power tool cases were already in the back seat of the car and that there was a third man behind the wheel of the car. My father pushed the two men aside and dove into the backseat of the vehicle. He started throwing his tools back into the alley. When he was doing this, he could hear the other two men yelling at the driver to take off. He didn’t. My dad was able to grab the last of his tools as he exited the vehicle. Just then, the driver speed off down the alley. The other two men had taken off on foot.

  My father immediately called 911 and the police were on the way. The moment he hung up with the operator, he dropped to his knees and realized he was having a heart attack. The police arrived and realized what was happening. They called an ambulance. He was taken to the hospital and rushed to the cath-lab, where they performed a angio-plasty on him. They placed a stint in a coronary artery. Between then and August 2016, he had four more stints put in him. In early 2015, my father started complaining of problems with headaches, dizziness and problems concentrating. In late August 2016, he started feeling chest pain again. He found himself getting another stint. But he also complained of the problems with his head. The doctors did an MRI and discovered that he had suffered two small strokes. This explained the reasons for his problems with his head. He was then told he needed both of his carotid arteries stinted and one cardiac stint.  He went through a lot of pain, but was able to recover quickly and got back on his feet. He was still dealing with some problems from the strokes. His troubles seemed to be in the past.

    On Febuary 20, 2017, he was rushed to the hospital complaining of very bad chest pains. They ran a bunch of tests on him, including another angio-plasty. At that time, he was told he had a bunch of clogged arteries again. On Monday, February 27, 2017, they preformed a triple bypass on him by taking out a vein from his leg and using it to replace his arteries. He will be out of work for a few months.

On my father’s behalf, I am asking a huge favor of all his family and friends. Please give whatever you can to help out my father. I am trying to raise enough money to pay his mortgage and bills for four months. He needs approximately  $2500 per month. Therefore, I have placed a goal of $10,000. Please, I do not want my father to lose his house. Please don’t feel any sort of guilt if you can’t support him. If you do, hopefully my brother or myself can pay you back or at the least somehow return the favor. I want to thank you all in advance from the bottom of my heart. Thanks everyone.

           Sincerely,

                         Bryan Rupprecht Jr.
