Rudy Fred Rudat

March 13, 1936November 6, 2020

Rudy Fred Rudat, son of the late Fred Richard Rudat and Sarah (Sally) Rudat (née Regehr) was born on March 13, 1936 in Toronto, Ontario. He passed unexpectedly on Friday evening, November 6, 2020 at Scarborough General Hospital.

He is now on his path to a heavenly place which has provided him with a lifetime of faith and spirituality. For many years, Rudy led a life full of sports and entertaining when he wasn’t working 9-5. He played hockey and softball into his adulthood and greatly enjoyed singing and playing guitar, most recently with Bob Harper’s “Fun Strummers.”

Now free from suffering, Rudy leaves behind his beloved partner Anita Suk-Fong Chow, his “number-one-son” David Michael Rudat, his two loving granddaughters, Sydney Rachel and Roslyn Brianna Addison-Rudat, his first wife, Ann Marie (Harper) Rudat, his cherished brother John Henry Rudat and partner Mary-Jane McMillan, and was predeceased by his elder sister, Dorothy.

Regrettably, given the current restrictions over gatherings, there will not be a funeral service. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Hello, recently I was informed of the passing of Rudy Fred Rudat by Donna Warkentin, who was married to my late father, Peter Warkentin. Rudy was a nephew of my father's and they shared a passion for music. My father passed in January of 2019 after just turning 89. I don't recall meeting Mr. Rudat, but I'm sure he was a fine Canadian. My condolences to his family.

I got to know Rudy from the table tennis group for about last 3 years. He was always funny, joking and playing his heart out. My condolence for Anita and Rudy's family. We missed playing TT with him due to pandemic but would see him now and then in the building. Keep on smiling Rudy, you will be missed. May your soul rest in peace.

My heartfelt condolences to Anita and Rudy's family. Rudy was a great asset to the Scarborough Village Singers. We missed him greatly this past season. His cheeky grin, his infectious smile and of course his voice. I could always count on him to get those high notes. RIP

This is so sad. I met Rudy while playing pingpong on Saturdays. Rudy was a great friendly guy. A warm person who always greeted everyone at pingpong with a great smile. A happy and fun loving guy.
Rudy you'll be missed.
Rest in peace.

I met Rudy at our regular Saturday morning residents ping pong. He always showed up with a smile and loved to joke and chat. That's the way I will remember him. Someone who makes you feel great when you are with him.

Dear Anita and family,
During one of our Scarborough Village Singers practice, I
brought my castanets to play with one of the songs. During
the break, Rudy, along with some others, was very interested
in how they worked, and we had some jokes and stories among
us that day. Rudy was always upbeat and part of the practice
conversations, offering his opinions to the director.
Rudy was a generous and caring choir member. The men's
section was opposite the alto section -- and they always made
us laugh!
I know that God has embraced him, and maybe even given him
some position over the heavenly choir.

I am so sorry for your loss, and our loss too.
We will all meet again, some day.

I met Rudy some six years ago when I joined the Scarborough Village Singers choir. Rudy and I had many common interests - we played the guitar, we sang, we line danced, we joked with one-liners, and our spouses loved to eat out. We met for lunch quite often at Time Hortons after a line dancing session, or other times at Chinese restaurants. Kwai, my wife and I enjoyed Rudy and Anita's company a lot. We were saddened to watch Rudy's health deteriorating and to see him having to quit the choir and line dancing which he enjoyed so much. Despite his health challenges, Rudy always remained upbeat with us.

We will miss you Rudy, our friend. May you rest in peace.

Our deepest sympathies to Anita and Rudy's family.

I met Rudy playing PingPong here at the Gates of Guildwood. He was a gamer with jokes aplenty during our friendly competitions. My condolences to his family and friends in his many activities.

I met Rudy at a table tennis session, and we soon became friends.
We remained friends for many years, and he, Anita and I often went to brunch together.
I suggested to Rudy that he might enjoy line dancing, and I gave him my stepsheets. He picked up the steps right away, and was soon dancing up a storm (and entertaining everybody) at the local rec centre.
Rudy was a natural comic, and amazingly quick-witted. His comic timing was superb. He found humor in everyday situations, and put everyone at their ease.
Everyone liked Rudy, and he will be dearly missed.
