RUDY – Leonard

Leonard Rudy passed away on Friday March 05, 2010 at the age of 80 years.

Len was born in Montreal and was a civil engineer graduate of McGill. He spent many years in Ottawa building a successful general contracting business with his partner Marvin Flatt.

In Montreal, Len worked on the IBM Marathon Building, then moved to Calgary where he worked on a Calgary designed school built in Salekard, Siberia and various other projects in Calgary thereafter.

    Dear Judy:

    Len was such a wonderful man – full of great humour, wonderful elan and a wee bit of “you gotta love it” contrariness.
    He was one of the nicest guys I’ve ever known.

    You are in our thoughts and hearts through this difficult time.

    Our sincere sympathies and big hugs,

    Sharon & Neil MacIntyre

  3. I learned of Len’s passing away in the obituaries in the Montreal Gazette. I was sorry to hear that but in our age group some of us, sadly, are passing away. Len and I were classmates at McGill until our graduation in 1952. We were not buddies but were friendly classmates. In the large drafting room where we all had a desk to store books and material, we often had discussions, usually in small groups, sometimes lively ones, where we attempted to solve the world’s problems….! After graduation we lost contact. Many years later I have organized dinners for our class as part of Fall homecoming celebrations. I spoke with Len over the phone sometime in the summers of 2002 and 2007 to invite him to our dinners, with a bit of arm-twisting, but he unfortunately could not attend.

    My condolences to his life partner Judy and his family.

    Sincerely, Gerry Roy
    St. Bruno (a suburb of Montreal)
