Guglielmo, Rudy A. Sr.
April 16, 1938 - February 22, 2016. Rudy A. Guglielmo, Sr. 77 years old of Phoenix, AZ was born in Mesa and died on Monday February 22, 2016. Rudy was devoted to his wife Virginia "Virgie" of 55 years. They met and graduated from Saint Mary's High School in 1958. He was proud of his parents and their Mexican and Italian heritage. Their resilience instilled a tireless work ethic within him, as Rudy and Virgie persevered to raise their children and operate a thriving business. Rudy was a generous man and had a genuine ability to make people laugh and feel welcomed. He was a favorite uncle to many of his nieces and nephews. Rudy was best known for the wonderful food he would prepare for friends and family. He owned and sold Pedro's restaurant in Glendale and later continued to work at Georgia-Pacific until he retired at 60. In his retirement, Rudy enjoyed spending time with family, fishing, playing tennis, and traveling abroad. Rudy is survived by his loving wife and three children: Rudy A. Guglielmo, Jr., Lorraine H. Bellows and her husband James F. Bellows, Sr., and David M. Guglielmo; three grandsons, James F. Bellows, Jr., Jason E. Bellows, and Esteban R. Guglielmo; and two brothers, Frank and Oscar Guglielmo. Rudy was preceded in death by his parents Frank and Edwina and his older brother Robert. Viewing is Sunday, February 28, 2016, from 6 PM to 8 PM with a reading of the rosary at A.L.
