Albert was born on August 6, 1935, in Troy, MO to Albert Franklin Luppens and Lucille Hinchliff Luppens. He graduated from Raytown High School in 1954, and later received his bachelor’s degree in science from UMKC. He was drafted into the US Army from 1958-1960, and stationed in Munich, Germany. He also served in the US Navy in 1962. He married Valeaira Clemans in 1963, and they had four children. He was a grocer at Just Rite Foods, Kroger’s, and Price Chopper, and a volunteer with Lee’s Summit Medical Center. From 1983-1990, he was involved in seven musicals in the Lee’s Summit Community Theater. He was also a world traveler, and his journeys included Europe, Africa, New Zealand, and annual visits to Allens Park, CO to visit his cousin, cruises in Alaska, the Caribbean, Mexico, and the Mediterranean. His love for his family was boundless, and he will be dearly missed.

We all went to see a movie about 2 years ago. The choices were Dunkirk, a WWII flick, and The Glass Castle, a dramatic memoir. Naturally, Albert and I decided to veer off from the rest of the pack and watch the war film. Throughout the movie Albert would lightly elbow me intermittently to advise me on the type of aircraft shown or the type of ship that would go by. Occasionally he would sprinkle in personally anecdotes about his experience during his time at war and I could not get enough. Eventually I lost track of what was happening in the movie and all I cared about was what he had to say next. To this day I couldn’t tell you what the movie was about. But I hold dear to me the conversations we had during the film. Rest In Peace gramps.

The first I got to meet albert was at Thanksgiving. I came over as a guest to celebrate with the family for the first time. Albert walked up to me grabbed my shoulder and said marry him he (robert breit) he hasn't smile that big in a long time. He might be a little crazy but he is sweet.
I'll never forget all his silly puns and how excited he was for setting up for the holidays. Bonko was such a blast! Thank you for being such a great example I can see your influence in my husband.
