      Following high school he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corp and served for 22 months with the Sixth Defense Battalion, stationed at Midway Island and Pearl Harbor. He served from 1942-1945.

      While serving at the naval air station as a Marine guard in Vero Beach, FL, Rudy met Velma Nelson and they were married on February 5, 1946 at the Methodist Church in Vero Beach by Rev. Jenkins. They were blessed with three sons: Gary, Wayne and Craig.

      Rudy and Velma farmed on the family farm in Springfield Township, Winneshiek County, IA until 1982 at which time they moved to Decorah.

      Rudy was an active member of Washington Prairie Church. He was a regular at Team Rehab until in his 90’s. He enjoyed fishing, observing nature, playing shuffle board, and he was an avid Hawkeye fan. Of all of his interests, his family was most important to him.

Atkinson, IA, Wayne (Becky) Remmen of Decorah, IA, and Craig (friend, Terry Goepel) Remmen of Mason City, IA; three granddaughters: Annette Walter of Calmar, IA, Wendy (Brian) Leuenberger of Ft. Atkinson, IA, and Megan (Dillon) McArdle of LaCrosse, WI; six great grandchildren: Kayla and Kaitlin Walter, Laney, Kannon and Kamryn Leuenberger, and Miles McArdle. He is also survived by one brother, Glenn (Ruth) Remmen of Decorah, IA and by nieces and nephews.

      Rudy was preceded in death by his wife, Velma on July 9, 2003; one brother, Olaf (Marie) Remmen; and one sister, Anne (Morris) Olson.
