How Did We Do?

William Leo Rumpca II "Jr.", 82 of Winona, died unexpectedly, Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Mayo Clinic Hospital - Rochester, St. Mary's Campus.
William was born May 24, 1935 in Winona to William Leo Sr. and Helen (Kulas) Rumpca. On October 31, 1953, he married Betty Googins. William worked for Brom's Foundry for 41 years before owning and operating Rumpca's Tri State Salvage with his son, Mike. Following Mike's death, William retired.
He was an avid fisherman and hunter and looked forward to the yearly hunting trip with his boys. He also enjoyed going to the casino and going shackin' which meant going for a drive. William had tremendous pride in his Polish heritage. He had a deep faith in God and was proud to be a member of his daughter's congregation at the Apostolic Faith Family Church. His family was his life and his love for them was evident through the pride he had for each one of them.
He is survived by his wife, Betty; children, Debra Ann (Merritt) Bebout, Douglas William (Kathy) Rumpca, William Leo III (Jody) Rumpca and Douglas William Jr. (Staci) Rumpca; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; brothers, Kenneth Rumpca and Ronald Todd; sisters, Helen Sand, Ann Gilbertson and Barb Siecrest; many nieces and nephews, and his faithful four-legged companion, Minnie.
William was preceded in death by his son, Michael Leo Rumpca; granddaughter, Samantha Jo Rumpca; parents; brothers, Bruce Todd and Buddy Todd and sisters, Elaine Bedeau and Patricia King.
Funeral Service will be 11 a.m., Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at Hoff Celebration of Life Center - Goodview with the Reverend Ken Shirley officiating. Private family burial will take place at Fremont Scotch Cemetery. Visitation will be 9:30 a.m., until the time of the service.

I remember Bill as a co-worker/ friend of my dad's, Bob Singer. This was long ago, ad my dad's been gone for over 25 years now, and I was quite a little girl, but I remember most of my dad's friends. I'm so sorry to learn of your loss, but know he's got a great old friend to reunite with.

My Uncle Bill. When I was little. I thought that was his name. I still do. Not many kids get to skip down the block to Uncle Bill and Aunt Betty's house. I played there, had supper there, never got in trouble there (the boys did), was there when Uncle Bill came home from work, walking up the back sidewalk, sitting on the front porch, Uncle Bill's chair, tomatoes in the garden, Uncle Bill in the garage fixing something, everyone watching tv in the living room, and on and on are the memories. I always got a smile and little hug from Uncle Bill. And the the cologne thing is a "Rumpca" thing. I think he was born with that hair cut, for I only remember his perfectly in place. Uncle Bill would mention how proud he was of his kids. I know that feeling, wanting to make your "Rumpca" dad proud. A scary memory, the only one, was when his arm was hurt at work. I didn't completely understand, but I remember crying in my room. But my Uncle Bill was strong. The Rumpca's (all of us) are strong. Dear God give us the strength we need at this time and forever. I love you, Uncle Bill. Would you give Joshua Carl a kiss for me?

I remember him as " dad" that's what all my friends called him and for the life of me I don't know why, I never knew his real first name . Just a good guy and a great family, we were blessed to know him. Dan Miller

I am so sorry about the loss of Jr. That is how I have known him since I met him all those years ago. Ron thought of him as a second dad and I know he was there to meet him and give him the tour.I will miss seeing him at Walmart coming for his bottled water. I am here Betty if you need a shoulder to cry on. Love to the whole family.
