Brandon David Rudenick, the son of Kevin and Michele (Knott) Rudenick, was born July 13, 1983 in Redwood Falls. He attended Redwood Valley High School. He had a career doing powder coating, which he enjoyed greatly. Brandon loved spending time with his family and friends, as his children were his pride and joy. He was proud of his family – proud of where he came from, who he came from, and the people that shaped him. He loved and lived hard. Brandon had a big heart, he was such a kind person, who was polite, respectful, and patriotic. He was very intelligent, history being one of his favorites, as his grandfather served in WWII and a POW. Brandon also had a great sense of humor, knowing just how to make everyone smile and laugh. In his spare time, Brandon’s hobbies would come in spurts, but in full force! He enjoyed crashing drones, car-tinkering, working on his bicycle, mushroom hunting, and drawing/sketching. He was particular on his space, as he loved organization and cleanliness, wanting everything to look good and put together!
