I remember the honest real estate advice and encouragement Rudy shared to my wife and I during our time at Elite Advantge Real Estate. I always felt I was receiving wisdom from an expert. Also, we always appreciated the family atmosphere that they fostered in the office....Peggy, you and family are definitely in our heartfelt prayers in the loss of a “true gem” of a person, Rudy...

Rudy and I were friends for many years. Growing up on the Carnival Rudy was with the Libbertt Crew and I was with my family business.
There are many memories but one of the sweetest that I recall was when Rudy became a dad to Carl. Rudy was very young and Carl didn't enter the world the most conventional way. Rudy was driving to the hospital with Carl's mom and Carl decided he would not wait to get to the hospital to be born. Carl was born in the car at a red light. Rudy was so shocked. After the birth (knowing Mom and Baby were both fine) Rudy went to his dad's home and said " you never told me it would be like this, my white interior of my car is ruined" From what I remember Rudy teased and said they would name Carl after the street Carl was born at. Rudy grew up that day and spoke of the birth many times. Rudy was a great friend and would do anything asked of him. I will miss my long time friend. Fly high Rudy. You will be gone but never forgotten

I hate to read this. I’m so happy Uncle Rudy and I were able to reconnect after losing contact for years. He always had me laughing whenever I spoke to him on the phone. He will be missed but isn’t suffering now. Prayers to my family

I will continue too think of you often. In a different way. I will be so happy that your pain and suffering is over. You will breath and rest peaceful . You will be and watch over the family just in a different way.
Say hello to everyone hug and kiss Phil and mom for me. They visit and I do enjoy that when they come.
Rudy you were a great supporter when needed . And at the same time very mysterious in just what you were saying.
When you took Scott to Canada you and Peggy both took him under your wings and watched over him. You left with a young boy and brought back young man. I saw a lot of you in him even too this day he never yells he looks directly at you and there is no doubt as to what he’s saying . He speaks in a low voice that I’ve seen you do many times.
Rest In Peace my dear friend love you always Gwenni💕💋
