Rudy retired from the Federal Government in 1996 and continued to work for the State of Texas and the City of Plano until his final retirement in 2006.

Rudy's children remember him as a father who always encouraged them to pursue their goals and education. He enjoyed watching football, going to the movies and making people laugh with his quick wit. He was a hardworking individual who provided for his family and never wanted them to show weakness in the face of adversity.
