I think Lupe died in November 1972, but I don't know where.  I thought he died in Viet Nam, but his name is not listed on the Wall.  Did an on-line search but the above date is all I could find.

We went to Jefferson Elementary together and I have nothing but good memories of Lupe.

Wanda, Lupi died in a traffic accident.   At the time he was working for either the FBI or a state security agency, maybe even the ATF.  Don't remember if he was on duty or not.  From what I remember the accident was under questionable cirrcumstances.

All I remember is that Lupi was a great trumpet player and a great person. We were in the Bradford band from

1962-1964 at graduation. Felt bad at his passing since he was so young.  RIP                                Wayne Walker

Thanks for the update on Lupi.  After reading your comments, I remembered that he was doing some sort of government work.  So sad that such a nice person did not have a long life.
