I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Rudy's passing. I will always remember him from Sea Isle, and all the Terruso-LaRosa family reunions he organized! Rest in peace with the angels...

He was a second grandfather to me, Santa to many children, and Uncle Rudy to all. I loved him deeply.

Uncle Rudy was a lifelong bachelor, an old fashioned Man’s man, hunter, fisherman, he Was proud to tell you the story of when he built his own boat as a young man by hand.
The third of three boys from a south Philly italian immigrant family, he was named after Rudolph Valentino, the heartthrob movie star of the time. He lived up to the reputation!
He was known as Santa clause (for Storybrook land) by children and Uncle Rudy to countless family members and dearly loved by all who ever were fortunate enough to know him. We blessedly lived a long, full life and now leaves a n empty space for all of us who were fortunate enough to know him. He will be missed.
