Rudy, an amazing heart and soul called home to be with the Lord, March 12, 2017. A brother, father, son, Tio, friend, companion, cousin, Marine Corp Veteran and so much more! He is loved and missed. He’s doing a dance in Heaven for us all today. His memory lives on in the hearts of all that had the pleasure of meeting him. We love you so much; Rest In Peace Rude Dog.
