Rudy Project


ATO brothers and Carey family members gathered at Oakwood Cemetery in Charlottesville on October 21 to dedicate the newly-installed gravestone for brother Rudy Carey. The commissioning and installation of the gravestone was made possible by the incredible generosity of brothers and friends of Rudy over the past year. Rudy’s gravesite is in the far Southwest corner of the cemetery, very close to Elliott Avenue. Among the family members in attendance were Rudy’s nephew Ray Carey and several of Rudy’s grandchildren. And in a testament to the strength of the ATO bond across the years, four active brothers who had not even been born when Rudy passed away in 1993 attended to pay their respects. Look for news soon about a formal dedication next fall during the 150th Reunion!
