Captain Ed Ruppelt's Death
"I don't know if you have any further interest in the death of Edward Ruppelt, but we were his neighbors at that time, and he car pooled with my husband to work at Northrup Aircraft. He never missed work to my knowledge and rode to work with my husband as usual, on the day of his death of a "heart attack". You can verify this information by checking our addresses---we lived at 1951 Josie Avenue Long Beach California, and Ed and his wife Liz and two daughters lived at 1931 Josie Avenue. The homes were built in 1953 and we moved into ours in October of that year. We did not socialize with the Ruppelts, other than the two men car pooling. My husband finished his career at Northrup Ventura, and has since died. I'm sorry that I have no other information to give you, as my husband, and surely Ed also, had Q Clearance, and at least in my case, did not divulge anything critical. I know that my husband (John McLean Robinson Jr.) was very sceptical about the story of Ed's death, as I am to this day.
Thank you for your time.
