Rudi Epp

March 1, 1948 - November 5, 2011

Tribute

Rudi, loving husband, father, brother, uncle and friend went home to be with his Lord and Saviour, November 5, 2011.
Rudi was born in Chilliwack, British Columbia and spent his childhood and youth living in various parts of Canada.
As a young adult he settled in the Fraser Valley where he met his love, Monika Braun. They were married for 41 years and have two wonderful sons and a daughter in law.

Rudi was an outgoing, fun loving person who was always ready to make a new friend. He was as comfortable visiting the elderly as he was playing with small children. He worked in construction and as a Provincial Corrections officer. He enjoyed his building projects, cross-stitching, singing in church, and cracking corny one-liners. He had a passion for serving others, and made 15 trips to Tijuana, Mexico feeding and building houses for the poor, visiting orphanages, and spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ.
His faith and love in the Lord carried him through the ups and downs in life to his final hour.

He is survived by his wife, Monika; sons David (Sara) and Stephen; brothers Bruno (Elizabeth), Martin (Barbara), and Alvin (Margaret); sisters Anna (Adolf), Susan (Werner), Lydia (Leslie), Linda (Victor) and Viola; brother-in-law Bruno (Carolyn); sister-in-law Hilda (Rudy); and many, many nieces and nephews. He is happy to be reunited with his parents, his mother and father-in-law, and 4 brothers in heaven, but those of us here on earth will miss him dearly.

From: Dave & Grace Loewen
Relation: Friend

Grace & I wish to extend our condolences to Monica and her family. Our memories of him are a generous and sincere individual; he would go the ‘second mile’ without hesitation. I recall Rudi’s struggles during his teen years, however, he certainly was able, with God’s help, to move past those issues, and lived a victorious Christian life. Even though we did not interact much in latter years, we will miss him.

Relation: Friend

Viv & I want to send our condolences to Monica and her family. I got to know Rudi at the MCI in Gretna & our paths crossed again in BC. We had many good times with Rudi & family & although we have not had much contact we will miss him. I did meet Rudi a couple of times & he was so excited about the work he was doing for the children in Mexico. He was a dedicated Christian. We were in Wpg & were not able to attend on the 12th. Hopefully we can make contact. Ron & Viv
