Rudy was a Tender and Doting Father and Grandfather, Kind and Loving Husband, Affectionate Son, Jokester Uncle, Caring and helpful Brother, Warm-hearted Nephew, Generous Appreciative and Devoted Friend.
Amberlee, heartbroken, called family members on Monday January 10th stating that her father had passed away that morning. Still now, several days later, it is hard to believe it’s true. Rudy seemed to be that one person that would live forever. Rudy’s recent health struggles took him too soon.
