Rudy passed away on December 4, 2018 (one week shy of his 39th birthday) in Minneapolis, MN.

Services: Rudy will be laid to rest at the Sunset Memorial Park in Albuquerque, NM on Saturday, December 22, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. All family and friends are encouraged to come and help share memories and warm thoughts of Rudy.

On December 11, 1979, Rudy was born in Roswell, NM. From day one, he was a wild one. Rudy’s crazy, loud personality demanded attention anywhere he went and that is how we all remember him and why we love him. Even as a kid, he was always a little ‘travieso’. The family has many memories of Rudy. Rudy made sure to always tell his mom he loved her. Rudy would always call Grandma Bessie ‘Jefita’. Your Jefita cannot accept that you are gone, she loves you so much. Cousin Ida says, “Rudy always called her ‘Nida’, and “Rudy always would tell me it’s over Ida”. His crazy humor and love for his family will always be a great memory for us. Rudy’s sister April says that no matter what he always said that he loved her. Rudy made sure he always told his family how much he loved them, never passing judgment on any of us. Rudy’s life was hard and for that, he became a strong man. He was able to fight battles in his lifetime that humbled him to become an understanding person. With those battles, he meet so many different people from all walks of life in Albuquerque, NM, Denver, CO and other places he lived. Rudy’s love was not only by his family but the lives of the people he befriended. Rudy inspired others to get help too while on his own path. He recently started his career in Tower Climbing, in which he joined his brother Manuel in that type of work. That work allowed him travel to different places such as San Antonio, TX and Minneapolis, MN. Rudy was a very intelligent person with so much knowledge and understanding of people. In another lifetime, he would have been a great counselor.

Survivors that will cherish Rudy’s memories are his mother, Yolanda Pinon of Albuquerque, NM, his sister, April Marquez of Roswell, NM, brothers Manuel Ortiz and Isaac Molina of Albuquerque, NM, his daughter Raelyn Lopez, his Grandmother, Bessie Perez, Tia, Guadalupe Salinas and husband Jesse, Tio Richard Aragon and wife Jane, Tia Rebecca Aragon, Tio Carlos Molina and wife Diana.

Rudy is preceded in death by his Grandfather, Jose T. Perez, Tia Bernice Aragon, Tio Leroy Aragon, Tia Elaine Aragon McCraw, and his daughter, Mireya Lopez.

Not, how did he die, but how did he live?
Not, what did he gain, but what did he give?
These are the units to measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of his birth.
Nor what is his church, nor what was his creed?
But had he befriended those really in need?
Was he ever ready, with words of good cheer
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say
But how many were sorry he passed away?


We Love you, Rudy!
