McLoyd (Mac) Rudolf
McLoyd (Mac) Rudolf passed away peacefully in his home on March 8th, surrounded by loved ones after a lengthy illness. Mac was born in Wishek, North Dakota on June 23rd 1935 to Daniel and Pauline Rudolf.  He was the second eldest of 8 children.  

Mac graduated high school, enlisted in the Army for two years and then returned home and did some work in radio and television commercials in Fargo, North Dakota.  He then moved to Los Angeles to continue working in media but shortly moved to Reno, Nevada.  

In Reno, Mac worked in the gaming and casino industry.  In 1976 Mac met his true love, Rosalie, at the Nevada Club while working.  They married December 28th, 1978 and have had a love and companionship that is as strong and rare as can be.  In 1993 Mac and Rosie moved to Winnemucca with their two daughters and never left.  Mac continued working in the casino industry and then at Walmart until retirement and many will remember his face and his never-ending supply of jokes.  You could always count on Mac to have a one liner as a greeting. 

If there ever was a devoted family man and loving husband, it was Mac; he would rather be at home with them than anywhere else. 

He is preceded in death by his parents Daniel and Pauline, his brother Homer Rudolf, and his sister Ardella Ronson.  

He is survived by his wife Rosalie Rudolf, daughters Christy Rudolf and Samara Rudolf-Phillips, grandsons Isaac, Arik, Jaerod,and Eythan,  siblings Farrell Rudolf, Volveriene Radliff, Wayne Rudolf, Lincoln Rudolf, Paulette Rudolf, and numerous nieces and nephews.  

The Rudolf family would like to thank the nurses at Humboldt General Hospital for their thoughtful and caring support during hospital stays, and Genesis Home Health and Olsen’s Corner Drug Store for all their dedicated staff and support during this lengthy illness.  A big and heartfelt special thanks to Guiding Light Home Hospice staff for their constant availability, empathy, and emotional support. 

The wish to remain at home for the remainder of his life would not have been possible without so many amazing individuals who helped with around the clock care and comfort. 

At the wishes of the family, no services will be held.
