His hobbies included spending time with his family, especially his 3 girls and all of his grandkids, meeting up with all of his many good friends and his crew (The Homeboys), watching a good movie, and listening to music as loud as he could. He also loved telling stories of the good ol’ days to anyone who listen and always having a good laugh.
He was a multi-talented person and specialized in home renovations and improvements. He has built amazing patios and backyard decks, and gorgeous flooring and tile work.
Rudy had a strong faith in God and was a true believer. He loved the Lord and it showed through all the people he encountered. He was a great man to all who knew him.
