In 1995, Rudy retired as a supervisor with Arrowhead Magazine Company in San Bernardino. Rudy enjoyed the company of his family more than anything. He never missed a sporting event, musical recital, school award or graduation of his children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren. Anyone who knew Rudy, knew he was a special man. He will be missed more than words can say. Your presence we miss, your memories we treasure. Loving you always, forgetting you never.
