Rudolph was born on January 4, 1945 in Portsmouth to the late Edgar Thomas and Cora Lee Thomas. Also, Rudolph attended Portsmouth Public School and was employed by Starband Corp., International Springs Corp., and the City of Portsmouth.

Nicole I'm truly sorry for the loss of your loved one. The bible offers words of comfort to help you cope. Revelation 21:4; John 5:28,29; Ezekiel 18:32; Psalm 37:29. May these verses console you
