For days we will never forget and memories of plenty.
Knowing Uncle Rudy, as we have, through out our lives he has always been an energetic man. From chasing us around as a child to shoveling the pond at our house so Jack could skate. He is smiling, laughing, singing and probably having a beer. May all your memories bring you peace. You are in our thoughts. xoxo

Dear Evelyn we are so sorry for your loss. He suffers no more. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
So sorry to hear of the passing of Rudy, condolences to you and your family.
I was really sorry to hear of Uncle Rudy’s passing. He was always very kind to me as a boy, and luckily enough I got to have a few conversations with him at the music store quite recently. He was the first musical frontman I ever knew, and part of the reason I took up music was the Free Wheelin’ , the band he played in with my Dad. He will be missed. My thoughts are with your family,
