Rudy went to high school at Uvalde High School.  He drag raced in Eagle Pass and won many trophies.  He also ran the drive-in theatre in Uvalde, Texas in the mid-70s. He moved to Burnet in 1977 and became a mechanic and worked for Merkle Williams Chevrolet.  In the mid-80s he decided to go into business for himself and opened Rudy’s Diesel and Electric.  In the early 2000s he made a change to get out of the mechanic business and started landscaping and irrigation.  He started his own landscaping and irrigation business, Sunset Landscaping and Irrigation, in 2005.
