During his time as a welder, Rudy was a master of his skill and is still known for his work thus building many friendships during his tenure in the oilfield. Rudy retired in 2015.

Rudy loved reading; he was very well read. If it wasn’t a book, he was reading it in a newspaper. There wasn’t a subject he couldn’t elaborate on. He was a history enthusiast. Rudy was as sharp as they came and he never missed a Jeopardy question. If it wasn’t reading, he was watching the news or doing cross word puzzles. He was quiet man but if you had the time to talk with him you would quickly learn something from him. Rudy had a passion for sports from golf to football, he loved them all. He especially loved to watch his children and grandchildren playing sports.
