In memory of Adolph "Herky" Rupp II
The Commonwealth Athletic Club of Kentucky is profoundly saddened upon learning of the death on June 22, 2016 of Adolph "Herky" Rupp II, 75, son of Coach Adolph Rupp.
Our deepest condolences to his loving wife and soul-mate of 54 years, Linda (Ethington) Rupp, his son Adolph "Chip" Rupp III and his wife Cathy, and his daughter Farren (Rupp) Shrensker and her husband Brian. And to Herky's six grandchildren; Adolph Frederick Rupp IV, Elizabeth Alton Rupp, Anna Katherine Rupp, Henry Barrett Shrensker, Wiliam Aubrey Shrensker, and Andrew Lawson Shrensker we offer our thoughts and prayers in memory of their wonderful grandfather.
"Despite his 10-year battle with cancer, Herky maintained with utmost dignity his immeasurable devotion to his family and friends. Through the years with the CAC of Kentucky, Herky's annual appearance with the winners of the Rupp Awards became the award presentation's crowning moment for the players and coaches who earned his father's prestigious award. As a gentleman's "Gentleman", his passion and kindness will be missed by all."
Ronald C. Heiert, President Commonwealth Athletic Club of Kentucky Inc.
