Rudolf DeBenedictis Obituary
Rudolf A. Rudy DeBenedictis of Wells, Maine passed away peacefully the morning of July 31st, 2015 only one day after his 92nd birthday. Rudy was originally from Newton, Ma. He attended Columbia University where he completed a Naval Officer training program. Rudy served in the United States Naval Service from 1943 to 1947 where he was a line officer aboard the U.S. Mine-Sweeper. He later attended Rensellaer Polytechnic Institute where he received his Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering, and then he graduated from Northeastern University where he received his Graduate Studies in Chemical Engineering. He eventually ended up in Westwood, Ma where he raised his family and was the beloved husband of the late June Ilene (Wilson) DeBenedictis. Lastly, he settled in Wells, ME where he and his wife Jayne (Higgins) DeBenedictis currently resided. Rudy leaves behind many loved ones. He was the beloved husband of Jayne (Higgins) DeBenedictis, and the late June Ilene (Wilson) DeBenedictis. Loving father of Robert DeBenedictis and wife Genie DeBenedictis of Franklin, Mark DeBenedictis of Michigan, and Janet DeBenedictis of Franklin. Step father of Paul R. Higgins. Noo-Noo is survived by 5 grandchildren; Jamie Lee and Danielle DeBenedictis of MA; Allison (DeBenedictis) Glover of NC, Alisha (DeBenedictis) Koenig of WA, and Alec DeBenedictis of FL. Rudy was a truly heartfelt man, who raised a beautiful family which quickly grew and expanded. Five grandchildren was the perfect number, not too few and not too many. He enjoyed living up in Maine by the water, and vacationing in Florida during both the summer and winter months. Saying Noo-Noo was a great cook was an understatement; he could have made it in the big leagues and he blew us all away every time he was in the kitchen. He spent every single holiday with his family, Christmas morning wasnt complete without him being there playing Santa. Rudy was an avid New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox fan and enjoyed watching the games. Friends and family are invited to celebrate Rudys life at the Charles F. Oteri and Son Funeral Home 33 Cottage St. in Franklin, Massachusetts on Friday August 7th from 10am-2pm. A funeral service will be held at 1:30PM and there will be an intimate burial at the Blue Hill Cemetery in Braintree following. We know you will be watching over us Noo-Noo as we continue to grow.
