Dad came to BC in his early 20’s with his brother Mathias.  It was in Ashcroft that Dad met mom and said he was going to marry her.  Mom and Dad moved around with dad’s work until they settled in Clearwater to raise their family and then eventually retired in Kamloops.  Dad was a carpenter, logger, road builder, Class A welder and mechanic. 

Dad played and coached hockey and fastball, curled and was an excellent pool player.  Dad was involved with the Lions Club, fastball umpire, rod & gun club.  Dad was an avid hunter.  His true love was boxing and coaching boxing.  After Dad retired he went to the gym and boxing club every day that he could.  When Mom and Dad spent the winter in Arizona Mom found a boxing club for Dad to work out at.  Dad trained really hard for his last boxing match at the age of 66.

We will be having a celebration of life on September 7, 2019 at 3:00 pm at the Moccasin Square Gardens located at 315 Southern Yellowhead Highway, Kamloops (near the pow wow grounds).

Rudy was a tough yet gentle man. I had the pleasure of training with him back when we boxed out of the gym in the hospital. Sorry I missed the service as I was out of the country. Hope you and the family can reflect on many fond memories.

Chris Chan & family
