On behalf of the Stathas-Rudhman family here in South Bend, Indiana, we send our deepest condolences to our Aunt Dorothy and cousins, Terry, Peter, and Penelope on the death of our wonderful Uncle John. We will always hold the fondest memories and fun times we shared with Uncle John in our hearts. Uncle John sure had a strong Greek character, especially when he wanted you to do something even when you didn’t! He was the Number 1 Greek which suited his Cadillac and Porsche so well on the license plates! He was a tough cookie who was full of charm, a person who absolutely enjoyed watching Marquette Basketball and loved to watch all sports in an energetic way. A wonderful dancer, he loved Frank Sinatra as does his sister Mary. He loved to whistle and loved music to the very end. We can see Uncle John right now in heaven dancing the Greek dances with all our Greek relatives who are already there. With warm and loving thoughts and much love to the Stathas family , Liza Bob, Stacey and David, DaphneChris and Erin, JimmyJudy and Jaci, Barbara, and Nancy Harry, Anna, Claude, and Ricky. Uncle John: May your Greek spirit always engulf us with your love…we know you are smiling in heaven.
