Rudy will be remembered as a loving/devoted husband, father, son and brother. Rudy had a big heart, and he was always just a phone call away from helping you out. Rudy had a beautiful smile and was always joking around. He enjoyed wrestling with his brothers, and it didn’t matter where they were. He loved his War Rig and teaching Isaiah and Keyna to drive. His favorite saying was “Lemme have it”. Rudy worked for McVay Drilling Co. for over 10 years. Rudy enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, swimming, gardening, cooking, shooting, listening to music and long conversations with his dad. Rudy was called by many names in addition to husband, father, son, brother; Righteous Rudy Reyes, Rudy McVay, and Lord of the Board. Rudy will always have a place in our hearts.
