Walter Z. Cupp, Jr., 61, of Haddon Heights (Walt) was a bright, easy-going husband, father, and friend who had a ready laugh and a warm, reassuring manner. He was happiest helping others and enjoying life’s simple pleasures, be it tinkering with his Ford Thunderbird, reeling in a Largemouth bass, catching a Phillies game, or relaxing with the history of the Revolutionary War – his furry companions, Sushi or Minah, always at his side. rnFamily came first for Walt. Married to his high school sweetheart, Sandra, their relationship grew stronger with each of their 42 years together. Walt was also a positive influence in his daughter, Crystina’s, life: coaching her softball team to victory, being present and forgiving, and imparting wisdom on everything from mutual funds to life: “the sooner you realize you’re not in control, the happier you’ll be”. More recently, Walt was delighted to welcome to his family a son-in-law, Evan Sturtevant of Seattle, and a grandson, Walter Lane Sturtevant, who at 6 months seems to have inherited his namesake’s easy laugh. rnWalt is also warmly remembered by his brother’s family, Carl and Jean Cupp, of Audubon, his former colleagues at American Honda Motor Company, Mt. Laurel (from which Walt, a graduate of Rowan University’s Business program, had retired as Manager after 39 years of service), and many more friends, family members, and neighbors whose lives he touched. rnJust as he embraced everyone, we embrace Walt in our hearts. In his presence, life was easier. Our family invites you to celebrate Walt’s life at a Memorial Mass, to be held 10 o’clock on 11 June 2009 at Saint Rose of Lima Church, 300 Kings Highway, Haddon Heights, NJ where friends may call from 9:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, 269 Hanover St., Bldg #3, Hanover MA, 08339, Compassion for Camden, P.O.
