Rudolph "Rudy" Agosti, Sr

Rudolph "Rudy" Agosti, Sr., age 75, of Waterville, Ohio, passed away of a sudden heart attack in his home, Friday afternoon, November 6, 2015. Rudy was born February 6, 1940 in Toledo, Ohio to Rudolph Anthony and Ema (Zanotelli) Agosti. He was a 1958 graduate of Woodward High School and attended Peace officer Training. On April 23, 1966, he married his beloved wife, Julie Lumbrezer.

Rudy worked as a private security officer for LOF. He retired in 1999, following heart surgery, and sought work that was less stressful. He was fortunate to be hired by St. Luke's Hospital, where he was a courtesy driver for the next 16 years. Rudy was devoted to his work, and was known as the go to guy for offering support and advice to his fellow employees in need. He will also be remembered for his jokes and cheering people up. He made people around him feel at ease.

Rudy enjoyed showing off his 1965 Mustang at local car shows and watching the Ohio State Buckeyes. He was a member of St. Patrick Providence Catholic Church in Grand Rapids. Rudy was an avid moviegoer. Tuesday was devoted to taking his family out to grab lunch and catch a good movie. Rudy's family was #1 to him.

Drew and family - My condolences fto you and family. While I did not know him personally, your description and his love of his 1965 Mustang, brought him to life for me. Just know "HE has put His angels in charge of you, to watch over you wherever you go." plsm 91:11.

Rudy was one of a kind! When we moved tothe area he and his wife Julie took us to a few places that they thought would be good Maumee. They had (have) a great family and we were accepted as family from the very beginning. Later on they had 2 boys and 1 girl. His boys and my son were like brothers. We will l never forget Rudy and his family. God Bless his family thru this time of loss. Many prayers will be with you.

Julie, my heart goes out to you and I pray that God will soften your heartache and be your extra set of footprints (like in the poem: "Footprints in the Sand") during this difficult time for you and your family. It's been years since Mercy closed but I feel as though we who worked there are (and always will be) family too. My sincerest sympathy. Take care Julie.

Aunt Julie and family, words cannot convey the loss we all feel, Uncle Rudy was a great guy, a big influence on me as I grew up, trying to emulate his joking and prankster nature. He will be missed dearly, and I always enjoyed running into him in the strangest places. The world needs more Uncle Rudys. We were all blessed to know him. Love to you all.

David and Maureen Agosti Nov 9 2015 12:00 AM

Julie, I am so sorry. Rudy was a precious gift to all who knew him. You are in my thoughts and prayer my heart is with you and the kids. Love ya Cousin.
