Tributes

Anyone that knew RUDY knew him as a man that never hid his feelings about anything or anybody. If he loved you, he’d bend over backwards to help you, if he didn’t, than he wasn’t at all afraid to let that show either. His passion was to help the people he truly loved, and support the causes he passionately cared for. I’m thankful that the Good Lord allowed Betty and I to spend these last few months with Rudy..We will miss you My Brother! We love you!

I have known Bob since I was a teenager in Sioux City,Iowa. He met and eventually married my sister. Always on the go, he was fun to be around. Later met up with Bob through Vickie in Houston. Had the same energy but some health issues. Lots of good memories with Bob. Rest In Peace.

Family was always one of the most important things to my Father. He loved his parents, his siblings, and his children. He taught me to always be there for family and to cherish that bond. As a child he was my protector and I was his princess. I never once had doubts about his love for me. I miss you Dad. Love always, Victoria
