Worthy Grand Knight Rudy Koenig (1946 - 2012)
RUDOLPH "RUDY" KOENIG
Past Faithful Navigator
Born: November 26, 1946
Died: March 17, 2012
In the early morning of Saturday, March 17, 2012, after having battled cancer
for several months, Grand Knight Rudy Koenig succumbed to the killer disease
and passed to his Eternal Reward.
Memorare Council is very much saddened by its loss and extends to Rudy's
wife, Sister Columbiette Lisa, son Randy, daughters Gretchen, Alexis, Lindsay
and his grandchildren its deepest sympathy on the loss of their beloved Rudy.
Memogram is pleased to print, in part, an e-mail sent to the Council members
from FS Dennis Glander on the morning of Rudy's death which expresses the
love that Rudy had for Memorare, ".........I thought of Rudy and the fact that he
was now pain free and with Our Lord Jesus in Heaven and truly walking on
sunshine. That thought brought a smile to my face and then I started thinking
about all the good things that happened to Rudy in his life like loving his wife, 3
daughters and son, his sons-in-law and his grandchildren. His love for the Knights
of Columbus and all that he has done for the camaraderie of our brotherhood,
like organizing the annual Council Fishing trip, the 300 Club, Commodore of the
Memorare Yacht Club and his love of boating and fishing, maintaining the football
and Superbowl pools and Superbowl party, organizing the St. Valentine party
and the Halloween costume party, not to mention all the things that he has done
for the 4th Degree also.
So the next time you go to the Council or are on a boat or fishing or watching
a football game or mailing your sweetie a Valentine card, please think of Rudy
and say a prayer.
God bless you Rudy, you will be missed."
