He had many interests in life.

He is survived by his wife, Consuelo of Gainesville, Ga.; two daughters, Julia Ford and husband Robert, of Cumming, Ga. and Arlene Harms of Augusta, Ga.; four grandchildren, Kristin Leavoy, Jacob Harms, Jessica Harms and Alanna Ford; three great-grandchildren, Ellen Harms, Abigail Leavoy and the newest member of the family due to be born in October.
Rudy was preceded in death by his parents Rudolph and Hertha and his brother Clinton Pietz of Carmine, Texas.
Ingram Funeral Home will facilitate service arrangements in Georgia and two other memorial services will be held in San Antonio and Carmine, Texas — dates and locations to be determined.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either the BPO Elks of the USA or Ebenezer Methodist Church in Cumming, Ga.
