Herbert Eugene Rudy

September 17, 1927 — October 4, 2019

Herbert Eugene Rudy, 92, of Greenville, Ohio, passed away Friday evening, October 4, 2019, at State of the Heart Care Center in Greenville.

Herb was born on September 17, 1927, in Darke County, Ohio, to the late Ora and Treva (Poe) Rudy.

In addition to his parents, Herb was preceded in death by his sister, Mildred Kennedy; and his brother, Lowell Rudy.

He served his country honorably in the United States Army at the close of WWII, earning the WWII Victory Medal. Following his military service, Herb, along with his brother, owned and operated Rudy Grain Company for over 10 years. He then went to work for Stover Feed and Grain which later became Sunny Side Farms. He worked his way to Manager, finally retiring after 20 plus years of service.

After Herb retired, he tried to relax and appreciate time with his family. He took up flower gardening and maintaining what his family called the "best lawn in Greenville". As he got older, he enjoyed watching old western movies.

Herb is survived by his wife of 66 years, Martha E. (Trump) Rudy, whom he married March 7, 1953; his children, Nanette Brawley of Vandalia, Ohio, Lisa Rudy of Park City, Utah, and Chris Rudy and his wife Amy, of Greenville; his grandchildren, Megan Mundt and her husband Justin, of Loveland, Ohio, Christine Longfellow and her husband Storm, of Dublin, Ohio, and Clark Rudy; his great grandchildren, Stella and Hadley Mundt. Herbert also leaves behind countless other nieces, nephews, and friends.
