Rudy was an army veteran of the Korean Conflict. He graduated from Bridgeport Engineering Institute where he studied to become a mechanical engineer, working for various companies including Bullards, Sikorsky, AMF, Reflectone, Avco-Lycoming, Arnold Bakers, Z-Loda and Transact.  Rudy had a fulfilling career that showcased his strengths of being analytical and detail oriented. Rudy prized himself on being a family man. He was abundantly proud of the daughters he and Rosemary had raised and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Rudy had a charismatic personality that paired well with his love of dancing and traveling. He enjoyed playing cards, cooking, bowling, cars, art, music, television and rooting on the UConn Huskies basketball teams.  He was proud of his Hungarian heritage and would cook his favorite dish, sutni szalona every summer for his family.
