On Monday November 16th, Anthony Aaron Rudolph passed peacefully at home surrounded by his family. He was a hardworking handyman, friend, and father of 11 kids and step kids and a grandfather of 6. He was a self-taught chef, handyman, painter, singer, dancer, and comedian. He was a stranger to no one, a friend to all.
He is survived by his wife and best friend, Suzan Rudolph. Together they raised a family and made memories that live in the walls of the home they built together. He is also survived by his older sister, Nora Salazar; his seven children Joshua Rudolph, Janelle Muro, Sarah Rudolph, Sam Rudolph, Charlena Rudolph, Evonne Rudolph and his favorite child Aiyana Rudolph; his 4 stepchildren: Michelle Acosta, Christina Morgan, John and David Acosta, his grandchildren: Matt, Chloe, Parker, Emerson, Tristan & Eryn Rudolph; his 5 chickens and his beloved dogs Sophie and Bean.
During the last ten years he fought a long, hard battle with prostate and bone cancer while doing what he loved; working hard and being with family. May his tired body finally rest while his strong spirit lives with us. With his passing comes great sorrow as he was loved by so many, but in his 60 years he has left memories to carry forever and taught everyone who knew him skills they could pass down for generations.
In lieu of a service and flowers during this time, we ask that you enjoy a delicious meal with your loved ones in honor of Tony. He asked that you not weep for his passing but celebrate life and live every moment with an adventurous soul and loving heart. Think of him in every trip to home depot, your next home remodel, a beautiful mountain view, every drink you toast, and every dog you pet.
