Frank Thomas Rudulph, 73, of Woodbine passed away Thursday, May 12, 2016, at Hospice of the Golden Isles in Brunswick.
Born Dec. 4, 1942, in Galveston, Texas, he was the son of the late Harry Chevaler Rudulph Sr. and Eva Jeanette Smith Rudulph.
Frank (Tommy) was raised in St. Marys by loving parents and loved the freedom as we all did, the fishing, camping out in this area, as well as just being a kid in those days. He loved music mostly old and praise and worship. Frank loved the Lord.
He left in the early 1960s to pursue other opportunities in
Orlando, Fla., and to raise a family. He returned to St. Marys in the ‘80s to work in security at the Navy sub base.
We will miss the fun, kidding around times we shared in and around family, but putting a line in the water and instigating the big catch, as we have watched him do many times, brought a
smile to his face. He loved his family and beloved dogs, Ryli and Oakley, and they will miss him.
Graveside services will at noon Tuesday, May 17, at Oak
Grove Cemetery in St. Marys, with Chaplain Pat McCord officiating. There will be no visitation.
Survivors include his wife, Dolores Dickey Rudulph of Woodbine; daughters, Millette McCrystal of Orlando and Amy Denise Rothert (Dave) of Osteen, Fla.; brother, Harry C. Rudulph of Orlando; five grandchildren; five great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
The family requests contributions in memory of Mr. Rudulph be made to Hospice of the Golden Isles, 1692 Glynco Parkway, Brunswick, GA 31525.
Allison Memorial Chapel and Funeral Home of St. Marys is in charge of arrangements.
