Rudy - Parks Maintenance


It is with great sadness that I share that Rudy has passed away with his family by his side. He served the city for 19 years as our sole parks and maintenance person. Rudy took great pride in his maintenance of the park. It was his 45 acre back yard that he diligently manicured and monitored. He loved to mow and even when he wasn’t well, it is said that he wanted to be out there because the sun made him feel good. Citizens, park visitors and disc golfers loved Rudy. So much so that when he became ill we had an influx of volunteers lining up to help. They wanted to make sure Rudy’s back yard was taken care of so he could take care of himself.  We can’t thank them enough for all their help.
