Rudy was blessed with a large and loving family. He is survived by his three brothers and three sisters, Marlis (Terry), Fred, Rosemary (Glen), Karen (Scott), Rick and Dave (Darla) and Sisters in Law, Patti and Bobbie (Murray). 
As well as many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

The legacy of Rudy’s kind spirit will live on in his grandchildren, Dalton, Jayme, Brady, Damian, Autumn, Brooklyn, Jesse, Joie, Wes, Jessa, Ellis, Walker, Rheannon and Milayna.

Rudy believed in hard work which is why he was up and out the door before the sun came up. This wasn’t without a trip to McDonald’s for his coffee and a muffin first.

Rudy was in the logging industry working alongside his Father and four brothers in the family company, W5 Logging LTD. When he wasn’t working, you could find him collecting and fixing cars, attending concerts, watching his grandkids play various sports, enjoying social gatherings and telling a joke or two, even if all he could remember was the punch line. Rudy loved with all he had and that is why family functions and dinners were so precious to him. Rudy was and always will be one of the good ones. 

The family would like to thank Dr. Joel Kroeker for his medical care over the years.

A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, May 21st at 1:30 pm at Rideout Community Club to toast the man we were all lucky enough to know. 

In lieu of flowers we ask that you spend time with those you hold dear. Time is precious and it waits for no one. 

Until we meet again, Rudy. You will be missed, but never forgotten. 

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Witzke family.
