My condolences to the family of Rudy Kump, he was a wonderful, caring person. I met Rudy about the early 1950's when he was working at a farm across from my family.and subsequently went with my brothers and I square dancing in Circleville, NY. Our paths crossed many times and he and Lucy became great friends with my parents and our family. Rest n peace, Rudy..Mary Radivoy, Middletown, NY
