    I remember the good times together. The fire house get togethers (LTH), the parades, the volunteer things we did as brother firemen, the banquets, and just the friendship we all shared as brothers in Lewis Tompkins Hose. An yes, LTH has all the pictures he took to remember it all. Rudy was a very special brother and most of all a friend. Good by RUDY, God bless you. Rich

  4. Father Brian Tomlinson, OFM Cap says:

    Rudy was a man for all seasons as he painted the walls of our auditorium at St Lawrence Friary many years ago with the four seasons of the year and photographed
    our Brothers when we had Chapter Elections in Beacon. He was Mister Available at our Sunday liturgies in his hospitality role
    and a wonderful giving person with a smile and kind word. May the Lord grant him peace and strengthen his dear wife and family with the awareness that their loved one is safely home with God. I shall offer Mass for the repose of his soul.
