May his memory be a blessing. My heart goes out to you in your time of sorrow. I will always remember the lovely bonsai Rudy created for my sister Judy and I. May the love surrounding the Antolin family bring all of you a measure of comfort in this most difficult of times.

Rudy was always so friendly and genuine. Seeing and talking to him always brought a smile. And, obviously, his musical talent was a true blessing to hear.

I am deeply saddened by the recent untimely passing away of Rudy Antolin. Rudy and I both love music. Before the pandemic, I sing with the choir while Rudy and his family with their God given talents provided the additional music accompaniment our choir needs. I have come to admire and respect this family especially Rudy.
As my wife and I are already in our seventies with underlying medical conditions, both highly susceptible to the covid-19 virus, it pain us not to be able to attend Rudy’s final wake to pay our last respect.
Following the Antolin family wishes, my wife and I have decided to make some donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Again, our thoughts, prayers and well-wishes during this painful time in your life.

Condolence From,
Manny & Hermie Marquez

Rudy was a fellow cytotechnologist at the Chesapeake LabCorp. What he brought to the lab wasn’t just his expertise in hunting down precancerous or even malignant lesions. He brought his guitar a few times! And we so enjoyed it. Also, on a few times, Rudy and I would slip away to the lab’s “backyard” and practice the Filipino martial art, Kali/Arnis: weapons fighting: we used sticks.
He was a good friend and a very fine musician. May Almighty GOD bless the Antolin family with comfort and compassion. Certainly, one day all pestilence including lymphoma will be eradicated from the earth.

He was such a wonderful person, he tried to teach me how to do bonsai but I failed miserably. He was so very talented and I loved to hear him play his musical instruments. His drawings were phenomenal and some of the best I have ever seen. I truly will miss his friendship, he was always so kind and generous and a beautiful person that this world will surely miss. Good by my friend and may the wings of heaven guide to the palace in the clouds.

To Trin and Family,
Words can not adequately express my sorrow to learn of the passing of Rudy. When Alex Harris shared the news with me on Monday, I prayed that it was a huge mistake. I have so many fond memories of Rudy...you see, me, Rudy, and Alex all went to ODU during the same time and we all worked together in the same department at the university's library. Like most young adults, we thought we knew it all but really we were such a bunch of goofy and fun loving kids..lol. I was always so impressed how Rudy was a self taught musician . I remember when he taught himself classical guitar and the mandolin. I remember when he taught himself how to write in Calligraphy and I remember the countless of free meals that he, Alex, and I ate at the Catholic Student Ministry House on campus because we were after all broke college kids. I remember when Rudy called me to ask for my home address to invite me to a party and when I received the "invitation" in the mail, it was actually his wedding announcement to the beautiful Trin. I remember how happy he was on his wedding day and how much fun we had at the wedding. His joy of marriage was quickly followed by his joy of having a family. What I remember most about my dear friend is his amazing bright smile and his laugh. I really can't remember too many times when Rudy wasn't smiling. Rudy was the kindest soul I have been blessed to know. I am so thankful that our God saw fit more than 3 decades ago for our paths to cross and to knit us together in friendship!
In Sympathy,
Denise M. Wilson
