Rudy brought a lot of smiles and laughter to those around him. His unique humor brought many of us a lot of laughter. His inquisitive mind often lead to phone calls to ask Stan to research facts online. Those calls also involved Rudy and Stan both behaving goofy & making each other laugh. Rudy was most certainly devoted to those he loved, including his family and pets. We will cherish our memories and miss him. Stan and Terri
