Rudolph E. “Rudy” Remsnyder, 72, of Hughesville, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, May 17, 2022.

Born July 19, 1949 in Muncy Valley, he was raised in Sullivan County by his Uncle and Aunt, Butch and Rose Krause and graduated from Sullivan County High School in 1969.  

He was married to the former Nancy Bitler who preceded him in death on May 19, 1996.  On August 11, 2006 he married the former Sharon L. Sones and they have celebrated 15 years of marriage.

Rudy was a self-employed concrete and masonry contractor, having owned and operated R.E. Remsnyder Masonry of Hughesville for many years.  He was a member of Pine Tree Hunting Club, the Sons of the American Legion, and former member of the Loyal Order of the Moose, all of Hughesville.  He enjoyed hunting and fishing and loved taking fishing trips to Canada with his family and friends.  He was an avid Penn State football fan and enjoyed watching car races.  He loved the company of his pet dogs over the years, but most important to him were the times he spent with his children and grandchildren.
