The swing had to be cut but Rudi and those responders got that baby girl out in no time without injury. I’m very proud to call him my cousin. We lost a precious gem but his legacy will shine forever! I pray the peace of the Lord that surpasses all understanding be upon the Gaines family & community. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Rest In Paradise Rudi LuvUmuch!

  36. I am so sorry to hear of Rudi’s death and I am also sorry that I knew so little about him. He will be missed.
    An earlier commenter said it is sad that Rudi can’t read the many tributes being written. Therefore, I give this advice. If there is someone you really like, tell them while they are alive. They won’t hear the eulogy.

  37. David was a generous kind man.He wouldnt hurt a soul my family is at lost of words. When my house was on fire he helped put it out &comforted my family.He did not deserve to go out this way justice needs to be served

  38. My condolences to Rudi’s parents, children and family. I know he will be missed dearly. He was a long time friend and I just cant believe this has happened. Reading these messages tells me how much he was loved and what a great person he was to many. Whenever we spoke he always had me smiling because that is the person he was. Always happy and just a fun person to be around. Let us all remember him as we knew him. Loving ,kind and thoughtful . He knows now how much he was loved. Let us remember to tell those we love, that we love them. And to be kind to all. You are at Peace My Friend

  45. Rudy was an inspiration to people on how to live life without drama. He was always pleasant and sincere in his words. Always caring and real. He will be missed so much because he is one of a kind. There are not many people remaining that have true love in their hearts for others.
