Severin, Rudolf John

1922 – 2012

Born on Nov. 17, 1922 in Langenburg Sask., passed away one day short of his 90th birthday. Rudy was predeceased by his wife of 59 years, Lillian, his daughter Gloria, his young brother Leslie, and his sister Ruth. He will be lovingly remembered by his son Dale (Lynn) of Vernon, son-in-law Jim, his grandchildren Lonni and Scott (Shannon) of Drayton Valley, and Robert (Miriam) of Kelowna, and of course his great grandchildren Chelsey, Micheal, Tyrell, Kevin, and Kaian. He is also survived by one brother Walter.

Rudy spent time on the farm in Langenburg, and then set out to see the world. He married Lily in 1942, served in WWII, and then settled in Calgary, where he started a trucking firm. He loved race horses and trained for many years. Rudy and Lily retired to Vernon in 1986. He loved to garden, dance, play cards, travel, and joke. He was a kind and gentle family man and will be dearly missed by Viola and many other good friends and family. Internment will take place in Calgary. A special thank you to the staff at Creekside Landing.
