Rudolph “Rudi” E. White

Branchport, NY,

Rudi passed peacefully in his home with family by his side on June 26, 2021 at age 76. Rudi is survived by his wife Cheryl; sons Erich, Jody, Wolfgang (Shane), and Seth; daughters Brenda and Becky; granddaughters Riley and Madelyn; cousins Hermine (Hermann) and Brigitte (Wolfgang); extended family; many friends, and his beloved dog Gretta.

Rudi was born in Fussen, Germany and loved to visit his family abroad. He served in Air Force for 4 years active duty and 2 years in the Reserves. He then began his career as a Nurse and retired after many years of dedication.

Enjoyed: tinkering/fixing things, music, dancing, storytelling, and a good cup of coffee.

Hobbies: painting, feeding the birds and fishing, bird watching, engineering new bird feeders (lots of anti squirrel prototypes haha), volunteering, and always finding a new outdoors project.

Rudi volunteered at Milly’s Pantry in Penn Yan, NY, which he thoroughly enjoyed; making repairs and learning the history of the organization, and the building itself. He worked with a wonderful group of volunteers.

He was a dedicated and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle. Rudi lived an exciting life and had many stories to tell, I will miss hearing them. He will be forever loved and missed.

All Funeral Services will be private.
