Obituary for Robert Joseph "Pops" Ruttman

Robert Joseph "Pops" Ruttman, 87, native of Conshohocken, PA and resident of Walker, LA, was called by the Lord on June 14, 2020. He faithfully served his country in the United States Air Force as Staff Sgt. before retiring after 20 years in 1978. He later retired from Riverbend Nuclear Plant as a Burns Security Guard in the early 1990's. He then worked for and loved his days at Spectrum Environmental and then landed at Spectrum Water Technologies, retiring in 2014. Pops was extremely proud of his family, his Polish culture and serving as a USAF Veteran. He never met a stranger, loved sharing stories of his lifelong adventures and worldwide travels, and had a huge passion for LSU football. He enjoyed serving at Immaculate Conception Church as a Eucharistic Minister and member of the Men's Club. He was also a Third Degree Knights of Columbus. He is survived by his wife of 14 years, Sandi Poe Ruttman; daughters Cheryl Miller and Lorraine Harris (Ron); son Allen Brown; step-daughters Lynette Wilks (Mark) and Darlene Carpenter; brothers Joe Rakowski (Karen) and John Rakowski (Karen); sister Sue Milke (Ray); sister-in-law Rose Ruttman; grandchildren Treynor McAdams (Melisa), Tracy Brown, Lynee' McAdams, Elizabeth Miller, Joseph Miller (Kara), Nikki Brown, Daronda Johnson (Britt), Jolynn Reed (Scott), Lesa Cegielski (David), Jessica Staples (Jacob), Madelyn Wilks, Chase Carpenter, Brenan Padgett, Taylor Padgett; and numerous great and great-great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.
