It is with great sadness that I learn of Rudy’s passing and I wish the family my sincere condolences.
Rudy was, in most ways, a second father to me. He taught me that a man could be kind and compassionate – even if a bit cantankerous from time to time. But most of all, Rudy taught me that the truest value of a person came from what knowledge they could pass to their students and the intellect and art they could share. These were the very same lessons that I have tried to pass onto my children.
I will continue to cherish Rudy’s life and his contributions to his world – both near and far. My life has been much richer with him in it.
Love and compassion,
