Rodolfo 'Rudy' Gaitan
With his family surrounding him with their love and care, Rudy was given to the angels and escorted to Our Heavenly Father on Aug. 1 at the age of 58. Rodolfo “Rudy” Gaitan was born October 27, 1955 in San Marcos. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. He is preceded in death by his loving parents: Roberto C. Sr. & Josie Gaitan and nephew: Pete Garza.
Rudy had many chapters in his young life and was well known for being straight forward and getting things done. Rudy worked for San Marcos Air Conditioning where he was a HBAC Mechanic. When he needed to relax, Dad would watch Nascar and basketball, especially the Los Angeles Lakers. Rudy was a family man most of all his wife and children meant a lot to him... and with his grandchildren even more. God graced our family with Dad. We’re happy to have had our father, Rudy for as long as we did and we will miss him dearly, but never forgotten in our hearts.
