Message: Im so sorry to have lost you my friend. We always had great ideas together. Our paths crossed so many times in my life time from visiting my dad back in the 90’s giving him copy’s of the top 40 count down so my dad didn’t have to record it every week on his tape recorder. I was just a kid back then but I remember every detail. To working the club. I’ll never forget that first week, I was in the parking lot and you came running out and said you need to come in here. I ran in and seen total chaos and jumped in head first. We all stop the conflicts. We had alot of great music talks, hell your the reason I quit working the club and went back to music. You helped me see my vision and live it. You helped me with my first t-shirt and PA system. You tried to book for me. You sat at every show tried to help me in anyway you could. Filmed the choctaw country showdown. Showed me what youtube was and how to use it. Taught me about marketing and how to promote. Without these useful tools I wouldn’t had never really been able to get any kind of music career off the ground. My dad and I, wanted to make jingles with you because you cane to us and told us what we could do. I went to school to get the knowledge to record, mix, and edit commercially. I knew this an essential tool to have ifI was going to make any kind of productions for broadcasting. I looked up to you and took every bit of advice you shared with me and applied it to my every day life and businesses. I have recently been in contact with you and was looking forward to our little venture we had been discussing over the past year. I knew you were having a though battle and felt like I was with you with your struggles. We talked about music, video, and life. You are truly missed my friend. Please know that you gave me hope when things were going downhill. Im glad you’re at peace now my friend. I will always cherish my moments with you. Love you Dan. Jeremy Phifer

Message: Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss! I knew Rudy most of our lives, from when he was known as “Tuffy!” He rode the school bus with me every day, every year til he graduated. I feel like I grew up with him & he was sort of like a brother to me. Many years passed & we didn’t stay in touch, but I thought of him often. We grew to have very different political views, but I respected how passionately he expressed his. I will always love him &remember him as a very special person & friend. May you be comforted by the fact that he was a devout Christian and is with The Lord , little girl, dad& others. May God bless you all. You are in my heart & prayers.

Message: Rudy and I went through 12 years of school together in Hazen. Rudy was a great guy, truly one of the good ones. I never once heard anyone say even one negative thing about him. He was always good-natured and pleasant to be around. Rudy was the best speller I ever knew in school. I used to tease him that he was the only student in the third grade that could spell CHLAPECKA. It was so good to see Rudy in recent years at high school reunion get-togethers. We talked recently about having lunch in Stuttgart when the coronavirus dust settled. I regret that we never got to have that final time together. Rudy will be dearly missed by all of his classmates in addition to so many others who were fortunate to know him. RIP Rudy. Your friend, Buddy
