I met Rudy Sr. And his son Rudy jr. In 1967 while playing Pop Warner football. Rudy Sr. Was an amazing man and great father figure. He always encouraged me and pushed me toward excellence. Visits to his home were always fun. Rudy Sr. was one of a handful of people that helped me mature and grow into the man I am today. Sports was always a way of striking up conversations with him and I enjoyed every minute. I will always remember him as positive force in my life.

My dad took me and 3 of my friends Jacquie, Signe, and Trisha, to Folsom Lake when we were in high school. He and I spent most of the day trying to teach my friends how to water ski. I think two of the girls got up that day. He was pretty athletic and a Great Dad and will be missed dearly.
