Rudy graduated from Antioch High School in 1939. He received numerous awards and trophies for his excellence in track and field. Rudy was employed at Fibreboard Corporation for 33 years where he was President of the Fibreboard Club and active in the union. He retired from Mt. Diablo Unified School District after 11 years of employment. Rudy was a 49er faithful, and his pastimes included hunting in Elko, NV, fishing the delta, and spending time with family and friends.
