Rudolph (Rudy) O. Halverson, 49, of Willmar, Minnesota  died Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 at Bethesda Heritage Center in Willmar.
Rudy’s graveside burial service was held at the St. Malachy’s Catholic Cemetery in Clontarf, Monday, Nov. 10 at 10:30 a.m.
Rudy O. Halverson was born  August 25, 1965, in Willmar the son of Rudolph and Maryanne (Nelson) Halverson.   He grew up in Benson and graduated from Benson High School and then attended Willmar Vo-Tech.  Rudy was employed as a painter for several area businesses & helped friends with their painting businesses as well. In his younger years, he loved traveling & telling stories!
He enjoyed camping, playing dominos, cards, his canine companions (Shadow-black lab & Buck-yellow lab) and being with his friends. He lived in Arizona & California, until moving back to Minnesota & enjoyed more camping & painting jobs! One job he took proud of, was at Diamond Vogel in downtown Willmar.
Rudy was released from Rice Hospital in mid-June, and was taken to Wabasso's Golden Living Center until being brought back to Willmar October 15, when he moved into Bethesda Heritage. Caron Wartman became his guardian (mid-June) and they'd been friends for many years! They thought of each other as sister and brother, more than friends! After church October 22, she went to visit Rudy at Bethesda Heritage and had some conversation with him and she realized it was his final hours approaching and decided to stay.
He was preceded in death by his parents (Rudolph & MaryAnne), grandparents (Granny-Irene Nelson) and brother, Dana. He will be missed by many friends.
