Great-Opa of 24. He will be fondly remembered and missed by many friends and family in both Germany and Canada.

Rudi came to Canada with his family in 1955. He was a master patternmaker, craftsman and over all jack of all trades. He loved his flowers and immaculately groomed his yard. He was a regular YMCA member, active in clubs and was extremely social. He was fiercely proud of his children and the legacy he left behind. His Sunday afternoon visits with his “kids” were deeply cherished.
