Rudolph Wilhelm Bossert passed away at home on August 6, 2022.  He was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on February 15, 1942, to Karl and Anna Bossert and lived to be eighty years old.

A lifelong St. Louisan, Rudy attended Roosevelt High School and the University of Missouri–Columbia, class of 1963.  Upon graduation, he worked in journalism and marketing before moving into carpentry and working as an entrepreneur and business owner along with family and friends for 40 years.

He married Martha Manley in 1964, and they were happily married until Martha’s death in 1983.  He (and daughter Ann and son John) was blessed when he married Rochelle Rottnek on February 10, 1989, and they were happily married for 33 years.  Rudy is preceded in death by his parents (Karl and Anna), his first wife Martha, and his brother Carl.  Rudy is survived by wife Rochelle, by daughter Ann (Kevin) Hemenway, and son John (Denise) Bossert.  He leaves behind six beloved grandchildren (DJ Cook, Luke Hemenway, Jennifer Bossert, Kari Eoff, Stephen Schroeder, and Andrea Dance) and ten great grandchildren (Alycia, Oziah, Eden, Eliana, Miles, Joseph, Omry, Levi, Asher and Eli) and many nieces and nephews.

Rudy will be remembered as a devoted husband and father, a man who was funny and generous, quick with a joke, and a master chef at the grill. He was a devoted Cardinals fan, an avid fisherman, and a frequent prankster.

He has donated his body to Saint Louis University, and he will be remembered with a celebration of life at a future date. A Kutis South County Chapel Service.
