Rudy Anthony Radosevich Obituary
Radosevich, Rudy Anthony



Rudy Anthony Radosevich died February 17, 2016, in Gallup, NM at the age of 67. Throughout his life, Rudy was a great and loyal friend to many people. He unfailingly encouraged his friends, expressed interest in them, and offered them pragmatic, common sense wisdom. Rudy struggled valiantly with MS for many years after being diagnosed in 1985.

Rudy was born July 2, 1948 in Gallup. He attended Sunnyside Elementary, St. Francis Elementary, Gallup Junior High and Gallup High School before graduating high school from New Mexico Military Institute in 1966 and Junior College in 1968. Rudy then attended New Mexico State University and was commissioned in the US Army and served from 1970 to 1972.

After leaving the Army, Rudy returned to Gallup and worked for several businesses before starting Scoreboard Sports Plus in downtown Gallup. Recently, he worked as the office manager for Gallup Dental Group.

Rudy had a passion for cycling and introduced scores of people in Gallup to the sport. At the 2015 Adventure Gallup banquet, Rudy was recognized as the group's local honoree. He talked about biking as an equalizer that made it possible to talk to people from different backgrounds and hear their stories. Rudy's statement about biking being an equalizer epitomized his approach to life and friendship. He was unfailingly interested in making personal connections with the people he crossed paths with in life and, in doing so, he made them feel special.

Survivors include his sister Mary Jane Halliburton, of Belen, NM; nephew Robert A. Stearns and wife Michelle, two great nephews Wade A. Stearns and Clay R. Stearns of Capitan, NM; and niece Stephanie Baca and husband Edward of Albuquerque, NM.

He was preceded in death by parents, Rudy L. and Stefina Radosevich and brother, James R. Radosevich.

A memorial gathering for Rudy will be held at Second Street-El Morro Theatre in Gallup, NM at 2pm Sunday, February 28, 2016. Direct Funeral Services, Albuquerque is handling arrangements.
