He and Ann were married in Germany, and enjoyed many trips back to their home country together over the years. Rudy and Ann moved to Mecosta, Michigan in the fall of 2013 and enjoyed their short time together there. Rudy enjoyed studying his family’s Genealogy, being outside and staying active. The social butterfly that he was, Rudy thoroughly enjoyed being in the presence of others and sharing his life stories with them. His family says he always kept up on anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions by making phone calls and sending out cards. Left to cherish his memory are his son, Alfred (Debbie) Rust; three daughters, Christa (James) Strack, Darlene (John) Godbehere, and Linda Mayer; grandchildren, Shaun, Shannon and Danielle; seven great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Those that preceded Rudy in death were his parents and his wife, Ann.
