Rudy was born on Nov. 26, 1922, on the fam­ily farm near Quin­ton, Sask. He was the ninth of 17 si­b­lings. “The first time I went into ac­tion it was as a stretcher bearer in Italy. We were car­ry­ing this wounded fel­low, me and three oth­ers, and be­cause I was wounded too, I had to take a break. We put the stretcher down and one of the legs landed right on top of a mine. The fel­low we were car­ry­ing was killed and the other fel­las were thrown in the air. That both­ers me to this day, be­cause I was the one who needed a break.” Rudy passed away in Red Deer, Alta., on Oc­to­ber 27, 2015.
