From Nevada Representative November 14, 1913
W. W. TUPPER
The Wyoming Tribune of November 4 copy of which has come to hand reports the death in Cheyenne of W. W. Tupper, who will be well remembered by the elder residents of Nevada. He and a brother came here in the later '70s and remained for half or more of the '80s. They were good citizens and they conducted a meat market on the east side of the street under the firm name of Tupper Bros. W. W. Tupper removed to Cheyenne as the obituary notice indicates about 1888, and his brother somewhat later to Anselmo, Nebraska. There have been occasional visits back to the old home, and old friends have thus had the opportunity to keep the family in mind. The news of Mr. Tupper's death will be received with much regret and the information concerning his family with interest. The Tribune says:
"The death of W. W. Tupper, whose funeral was held from the First Congregational church on Sunday afternoon, removed from the community one of its most substantial citizens. Mr. Tupper had reached the age of 71 years and seemed to retain, up to a few days prior to his death, his faculties and health almost intact except for such ailments as a man of his years is heir to. His death, therefore, came as a shock to his beloved wife and the family of three daughters and son, all of whom reside in Cheyenne, and to the close friends who had known him during the more than twenty five years he had resided in Cheyenne.
Mr. Tupper was born in Canada but came to the United States at an early age. He was married October 18, 1870, at Marshalltown, Ia., and first came to Cheyenne inn 1886, when he entered business here. He was connected with the Congregational church and his influence there, as well as in civic and social circles was always for the better things. He reared a family that commands the highest respect in the community, the son, Harry W. Tupper, being at present county clerk of Laramie county, and a substantial progressive business man. Three daughters, Mrs. Walter Yeager, and Misses Jennie and Jessie Tupper, reside in Cheyenne and receive the extended sympathy of many friends."
