    My heart goes out to this wonderful family. Mr. Maris was an exceptional person. I am so glad I had the honor of knowing him. May God be with his loved ones during this difficult time.

    Rudy you will be missed by all your friends and many were your classmates. You were a great guy and I wished we were able to see each other more than just talking on the phone. I was wondering what had happened as I would call your number and a machine would give me a message. The last time that I did see you was the summer of 1955 water skiing on Lake Melissa just before I went in to the Navy. I will list my email address and do not care if it is sent on cyhaeffner@charter.net
    Will never forget you in School, Chuck & Vonnie Haeffner Anaconda Montana
