RUDY HUDRICK SR.
It is with heavy hearts, that we announce the peaceful passing of Rudy Hudrick Sr. on November 19, 2020.
Rudy is survived by his loving wife Denise, daughters, Janet (Mike) and Linda, son Rudy (Brigitte). Grandchildren; Robert, Jaclyn (Mason), Ashley (Dylan), Amanda (Kyle),
Amber, and Ryan. Great-granddaughters, Scarlett and Harper. Also brothers, Joe, Ed, Jim (Diane), John (Lynn), and sister Ann (Doug), and numerous brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Rudy was predeceased by his parents,
Joseph and Olga Hudrick, brothers, Tony and Donald, sister Mary, sister-in-law Irene, and son-in-law Rob.
Rudy was born January 21, 1944 in Lorette MB, where he and Mom continued to live
raising his family. He was a stern, but fair
father who helped to teach his children to work hard and play just as hard. He was proud of each one of us. He adored his grandchildren; spoiling them as children and watching them grow. This last year he was blessed to welcome and love his two great-granddaughters.
Rudy was known for his amazing strength, a man with large hands and a heart to match. He was an individual of few words, but was always ready to find the next person to tease.
Rudy worked in construction throughout his life, where he was well respected. He was a generous man who would give the shirt off his back to help anyone. He was an avid
hunter, spending many years creating
memories with his buddy John and cousin Joe. It's very likely they will meet in heaven sharing the stories we have all heard so many times. He enjoyed his fishing trips with his friend Emil at some secluded lakes in
Ontario, known as Rudy's Lake and Emil's Lake; one was for pickerel and the other trout. For many years, each Thanksgiving, he would insist on his marathon trips to Creston, BC to pick apples, filling his truck until the bumper scraped the ground.
Rudy and Denise enjoyed vacations
together to many destinations. The
restoration of his 1967 Dodge Monaco, was the beginning of the many summer journey's with a car club, Kustom Klassics. Along this adventure, they made many lifelong friends in both Canada and the United States.
We all love you dearly and will share your memory with great respect, and joy. Rest easy, stay out of trouble! Until we meet again.
The family would like to thank the many doctors and nurses for their treatment and support with Rudy's 11 year battle with
Due to current circumstances, a service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba.

Deepest sympathies Denise and family. - Posted by: Jim and Lillian Siwicki (Friends ) on: Nov 23, 2020
Dear Denise and grieving family: It is with sad heart that I and John Paizs offer our deep felt condolences. Rudy, John and I have worked together on many projects in the past many years. I have learned to appreciate Rudy for his, generosity, kind heart, strength, leadership and knowledge. I appreciated his willingness to come and help when called upon even though he was struggling with serious health condition. He loved to share. Who can forget the apples from BC in the fall or the many garden products he liked to grow (tomatoes on the vine or in bottles). Fish or venison from his fishing and hunting trips. But mostly we appreciated the bravery with which he approached and handled his cancer and the operation. Above all, Rudy was a loving husband and father. The way he loved and appreciated Denise and his children and grandchildren was an example to us all. Denise, he could not have had a more loving and caring wife. We will always cherish Rudy's memory.
