Rudolph “Rudi” E. White
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.
