On July 29, 2019 our father, Rudolph “Rudy” Arzola, joined his wife Ruth with our Lord. He was preceded in death by his parents; 14 siblings; and his three children, Lillian, Joseph and John. He is survived by his 7 children, James (Toni) Arzola, Rudolph (Kay) Arzola, Louise (Paul) LePage, Valerie (Urbano) Chavez, Eugene (Virginia) Arzola, Mark Arzola, and Tony (Angela) Arzola; 32 grandchildren; 61 great-grandchildren; and 11 great-great-grandchildren. He also leaves behind several other friends and family who will all truly miss him
Rudy was a WWII veteran in the United States Navy. After returning home from the war he worked various small jobs. He then began his career at the Kansas City Fire Department where he eventually earned the rank of Captain and served for 25 years. Rudy was an ordained minister and was active in Street Ministry and various other mission outreaches.
Our father brought a lot of love and memories to our families and friends. We will always have fond memories of him and will cherish them every day.
