I was talking to Rudy in his office the day before he died. I knew he hadn't been feeling well, but I was shocked to hear he was gone. I know Rudy to be a devoted employee, husband and son. He was very private, but I knew enough to say what a good person he was outside the office. Trish, I pray for you and am sorry that Rudy is gone from your life.

I started working with Rudy about 3.5 years ago. He taught me so much about data and how to perform tasks required of our management. He was patient, thorough and really wanted me to be confident in my ability to do the job and he would compliment a job well done. I think party because it was a reflection on him. He could be rough around the edges, but it is part of who he is. I recently teased Rudy that the only way to get him to do something required 3 emails and a visit to his office.

I will always be grateful for what you taught me and time invested in helping me. I enjoyed our conversations and knowing I could confide in you. SHF won't be the same. I will miss you and I hope you rest in peace.

Rudy was a kind, compassionate, stubborn, aggravating, jovial, caring man. He was a hard worker and one who loved to have fun. I will forever treasure our friendship of many years ago. I'm thankful for the memories we all have of him and the impact he has had on so many lives, including my own. Any one who has met him, carries a piece of his legacy. Thanks, Rudy for enriching all our lives.

Rudy was the best neighbor any one could have. We worked together on replacing our side fence. He was so easy to get along with-we quickly worked out any issues during the course of the project. Rudy was such a caring person...his devotion to Trish was evident. Trish, We are deeply sorry for you loss. We are here for you day or night Trish—please reach out at any time. Rudy you left this world too soon and we miss you. Rest In Peace Rudy.

I worked with Rudy for 13 years and shared an office with him for about 9 of those years. It is hard to find one memory. Each day started with 'shooting the breeze', getting statuses on projects. You get to know someone pretty well sharing a space 8-9 hours a day, 5 days a week. Even though we would bicker..apologies were easy to come by and humor always smoothed things over. I think that is why we could work together for so long. It was those daily laughs...even when things got stressful..that I will remember fondly. Darn it left way too soon. You will be missed my friend. Thank you for being my mentor, colleague and friend.

Sending my love to you Trish.❤️ My Tio Rudy will be greatly missed. I still can't believe he is gone. A memory I have is we both loved Grandma's carne guisada and when she became older she just couldn't cook anymore. The last visit we had in Austin a few years ago my fiance Fidel and I took Rudy to a place that made almost the same carne guisada as grandma and he was very happy. We have had some great memories of him visiting us in Texas.  Till we meet again Tio Rudy. Hope you are having a beer with grandpa. God bless you and love you from
Rose and Fidel

My deepest sympathies Trish.
My heart ached when I heard the news that my Uncle Rudy had left this earth. His memories will forever live in our hearts. I will always remember my Tio Rudy as a jokester and picking on my sister and I when he would visit grandma. I also will never forget the trip we took with my grandparents to visit in California. Please know my loving thoughts embrace you each and everyday. Uncle Rudy will be greatly missed.
Love always Ruby

Rudy was like a brother to me..we were cousins but he was like a brother. Whenever i needed help he was always there for me. He would call me early in the mornings just to wake me up and he would laugh about it. Even though it would aggregate me at the time im sure going to miss those calls. He would call to make sure i was on the right track..i had just talk to him the saturday before he passed. I will greatly miss you Rudy..may you rest in peace until we meet again.
