Rudy will definitely be missed, me and my daughter have been cleaning his house for a while now. He was always nice to visit and a very caring guy. I will never forget what he would tell me every year before he left for Alabama “I need to get out of here it’s colder than a well diggers ***” lol always good for a laugh.

Tim and I have known Rudy since our boys were very little. He always called us to to tease us about the snow in the winter when he was in Alabama. He still would stop over and visit on his way to or from getting ice cream with his little dog in the summer. We will miss Rudy.
