Sad to hear about Rudi,
in the short amount of time I spent with him , told me that he lived a life that our Christ loved to see.
he always gave me kind but awesome knowlage about the cub electrical systems . (all of them ) and loved to share.
such a special life. I can only hope to be as faithful and kind myself.
Thank you for sharing him with us at cubfest.

Godspeed Rudi RIP

Little by little us baby boomers are the old timers now. We're taking a hit lately. We're in that age zone. Godbless.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I spoke with Rudi only once via email, and he was as gracious as you all have said he was.
Luckily for him, his legacy lives on with all of us.
Rest in peace, Mr. Rudi.

I am late hearing the sad news of Rudi's passing.
Our deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers for strength and peace to Em and family.
What a great guy that Rudi, and how wonderful of Em to share him with us. Hugs to you Em!
We all share in Rudi's giving heart with all the manuals at our disposal, and countless other posts of Cub fix up knowledge.
He was the best forum welcomer ever too! :{_}:
I think it was Christmas 2005?, that Bigdog and Em helped me sneak a NOS Jointer for his Cub plow across the border and to their place. It was just my way of giving and sharing's what we do here. Best bunch of troublemakers you'd ever hope to know! :lol:
Sure will miss him.

I was sorry to hear of Rudi's passing. He was a big help to me when I was trying to rebuild a cub engine a few years back. It was amazing what he could do with a computer and his manuals were just great. I had the pleasure of talking to him by phone one time and really enjoyed our discussion. He will surely be missed. May the Lord bless him and his family.

Here is the obituary.

From my perspective, he was quite a young fellow. R.I.P.

So sorry to hear of Rudi's passing. My condolences to his wife and family. He was one of the guys who welcomed me to the forum, and being a person who worked in joinery I had many conversations with him over the years. We are all at a loss on the forum and will miss him immensely. Rest In Peace Rudi.
