Rudolf (Rudi) Baisch - beloved husband, father, brother, and friend, suddenly and peacefully passed into Heaven at his home in Southbury, CT on December 3rd, 2019 at the age of 62.
Born July 31st, 1957, Rudi grew up in Valhalla, NY with older sister Heidi and younger brother Peter. He was loved and raised by his late parents Rudolf and Caroline Baisch. He is survived by the love of his life, Kathy, and their adoring children, Jason and wife Kristi Baisch, Thomas and wife Brittany Baisch, Lauren Baisch and fiancé Graham Musson.
Rudi and Kathy shared 41 beautiful years of marriage filled with stolen kisses in the kitchen, laughter, and the record for the loudest family game of Pictionary ever played. They raised their ever-growing family in Southbury, CT where they’ve resided for the past 25 years. He will be missed by his five gorgeous grandsons, Jaxon, Maddox, Lincoln, Benjamin, and Grant, who all brought him immeasurable joy.
Blessed with a spiritual family, he spent 47 years faithfully serving God’s children like his own. Of these, thirty-five years were spent as the Rector of the New Milford branch of the New Apostolic Church. He guided, comforted, and uplifted members with exponential kindness, patience and love.
Since 1979, Rudi worked at the Emery Winslow Scale Company where he started as a junior clerk. Over the course of more than 40 years, he rose through the company to become the Executive Vice President and sit on the Board of Directors. He was the voice and face of the company with humor and expert understanding.
Rudi was stable and unwavering. Clearly, he did not commit to anything unless he was going to spend the next 40 plus years doing it. This included, but was not limited to, perfecting the voices used to read Dr. Seuss books to his children and then their children. Making the best pot of boxed Macaroni and Cheese ever stirred, fluffy scrambled eggs, and wrapping you in the safest bear hugs known to man. He welcomed everyone into his life and gave all of the love he had to give.
He will continue to be loved and missed by all who knew him.
The family will receive visitors on Friday, December 13, 2019 from 4:00pm – 8:00pm, and Saturday, December 14, 2019 from 11:00am - 2:00pm at New Apostolic Church, 2 Main St. in New Milford, CT 06776. A funeral service will immediately follow in the church at 2:00pm.
