On the morning of Dec. 31, 2015 Rudy passed away at age 79, due to respiratory failure at Sharp Coronado Hospital surrounded by loved ones.
He was a loving husband of 37 years to Ollie Rutherford who preceded him in death. Rudy is survived by daughter Nina Neimoyer, son Robert Rutherford, step daughter Cindy Fisher and six grandchildren.
Rudy was a proud patriot, US Navy Veteran, Freemason with lodge #747 and a member at the American Legion Post #820. Rudy was born in Widowed, Pa, but called Imperial Beach his home for the last 40 years. Rudy will be greatly missed and remembered as a man of his word and someone you could count on.
We love you, Pap.
