On Saturday November 28th; our dad passed on and joined his love Eileen after a short battle with Covid 19 at the young age of 79.
Rudy was born in Chicago on July 11, 1941 to the late Jesse and the late Margaret Garcia.  He was the greatest dad to Christine (Joe) Levinskas, Colleen (late Roberto) Diaz, Mike (Donna) Bucher, Kelly (Dave) Eggert and Joe (Amy) Garcia; he was the very proud Grandpa of Joey , Janis, Lil Joe, Jennifer, the late Jesse, Jillian, the late Darcy, Derek, Kayla, Connor, Andrew, Austin, Payton, Taylor, Olivia, Mallory and Gabriel; loving and fun brother of twelve siblings; the late Bennie (late Carmen) Garcia, late Ophelia (late Jim) Ortiz, Esther (Al) Garcia, Mela (late Robert) Rodriguez, the late Arnold “Butch” (late Connie) Garcia, Sergio (Lori) Garcia, Eva (Don) Varela, the late Carol (Bob) Gonzalez, Jim (Chris) Garcia, Marie (Norm) Nunez, Mary Lou Salazar and Ricky (Jan) Garcia.
Rudy was the mentor to many nieces and nephews, the best friend of too many to count and inspiring to all. He was a Local 150 operating engineer and was given a commemorative ring for his 40 years of service which he wore with pride.
Rudy was a Veteran of the Army and honorably served his country.
Rudy’s greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends in his beautiful yard.  He loved entertaining and getting everyone together. You walked away better after spending time with Rudy.  He touched so many in different ways. Our lives will be changed forever but we will remember him every day of our lives.
