Rudolph Valentino Regalado Obituary
Rudolph Valentino Regalado May 21, 1930 - February 12, 2018 San Diego On February 12, Rudy Regalado was called up to God's major league. One of the few to play in the College World Series, World Series, Caribbean Series and Junior World Series, Rudy's family and baseball were his passions. Born in Los Angeles to Manuel and Maria, Rudy grew up with siblings Nellie (Sepulveda), Greg, Ernest and Salvador. He played for USC, the Cleveland Indians (hitting .333 in the 1954 World Series), and the San Diego Padres. After hanging up his cleats, Rudy worked for 25 years at XETV Channel 6. Rudy also gave back to his country and community - serving in the Korean war, coaching little league and raising funds for Catholic charities. But the highlight of his life (after meeting the Pope, of course) was meeting Marilyn Hall in 1954. Rudy and Marilyn shared 57 loving years of marriage and were blessed with 3 sons - Perry (Roberta), Gary (Lisa) and Rudy (Jacki) - and one perfect granddaughter, Sydney. Rudy will be missed by his large, loveable lot of extended family members and wonderful friends, especially those in his adopted hometowns of San Diego and Borrego Springs. Services at 11:00 a.m. March 17 at St. Richard's Catholic Church in Borrego Springs. Take two and hit to right, Rudy!
