Rudolfo "Rudy" Hernandez Obituary

Rudolfo "Rudy" Hernandez--beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather and great-grandfather-- passed into the arms of the Lord on March 19, 2015.

Rudy was born on June 11, 1932, to Paul and Amanda Hernandez in Cloudcroft. He was raised in Cloudcroft and in Alamogordo, along with his four sisters.
After he graduated in high school, Rudy enlisted in the United States Army. He served one year of active duty and six years in the reserves.
He met and later married Gloria Ayala and together they raised three sons and a daughter.
Rudy made his career as a barber, giving many local residents their first haircuts. He continued this career until recently when his health began to fail. Rudy was also involved in the community, serving on many local committees. He was very proud of helping to get a new school built in La Luz.

Rudy was preceded in death by his parents Paul and Amanda, his wife Gloria and his sisters Georgia and JoAnn.

He is survived by his sons Robert (Connie), Alfonso (Ann Marie), Rudy Jr. (Debbie); his daughter Sonya (Neil) and sisters Molly, Beatrice (Jack), and Estella (Steve). He was also blessed with seven grandchildren, Jeremy (Becky), Esperanza (Whitney), Adreina (Jarred), Kristen (Kyle), Matthew, Tsuey, and Andreas, and five great-grandchildren Kassidy, Devaeah, Liam, Logan and DeTavion.
