Rudolph Edward Holick

August 2, 1955December 21, 2020

Rudolph Edward Holick, age 65, of Terrell, Texas passed away on Monday, December 21, 2020. Rudolph was born August 2, 1955 in Terrell, Texas to parents Rudy Holick and Bennie Parnell. Rudolph, also known as Rufus in his youth, was a 1973 graduate of North Mesquite High School. On May 22, 1982 he married the love of his life Pamela. It is safe to say Rudy was a true Dallas Cowboys fan and loved watching them play. He loved being with his family and celebrating the holidays. Rudy was always the life of the party with his quick wit and humor. Rudy never met a stranger and he loved people. When he wasn't being social, he was probably in a book reading or listening to music. He loved all kinds of music but some of his favorites were classic rock, blues, or even jazz. Rudy was last employed with Berger Engineering for over 8 years. He was a hard worker and always provided for his family. He and Pam were also members of Cornerstone Baptist Church in the early 80's located in Terrell, Texas. He is preceded in death by his father Rudy Holick Sr. "Big Rudy" and his half sister Jamie Lynn Sloan. Those left with cherished memories are his loving wife Pam Krist Holick, daughter Kristina Maureen Holick-Moore and husband Michael Moore, son Daniel Ryan Holick and fiancé Jasmine Flores, one grandson Anthony "Tony" Edward Moore, half sister Joni Lavin and husband Robert, life long friend "Big Al" Albert Elliott and wife René along with a host of other close family and friends who will miss him dearly. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Holick family.

After many years of being apart, Rudy joined me and several NMHS drama friends at the school's 50th anniversary October 2019. It was as if no time had passed even though it had been many years. In high school, Rudy was not only a wonderful actor but he was really funny all the time. I was delighted to have reconnected with him and, had we known that his time was short, we would've stayed there longer that evening. My heart goes out to his family members, all of whom obviously adored him; I'm so glad he had y'all. The world is a darker place without "Rude the Dude," but I have to believe he is laughing with our friend Bill Norman who died just 10 days before the NM gathering. I will never forget Rudy, one of the funniest, kindest, and most talented men I've been lucky enough to know.
