Casimir Aloysius “Cas” Rudnicki, age 96, formerly of Northdale Dr., Toledo, passed away on Monday, June 3, 2019 at Lakes of Monclova surrounded by his loving family. He was born on October 24, 1922 in Toledo, OH to Casper and Rose (Holewinski) Rudnicki. Cas graduated from Libbey High School and worked for Willys Overland Motor Co, Schultz Die Casting, and as a delivery driver for the Wayne Lumber Co, retiring from there in 1984. A WWII US Army Veteran, he was a proud participant in the Flag City Honor Flight from Findlay, OH in 2014. He was a member of the Teamsters Union, and a charter parishioner of Regina Coeli Catholic Church. A talented woodworker, he enjoyed making furniture, picture frames, toys, and even jigsaw puzzles for family members and friends. Cas was a true homebody at heart – a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, family man and friend who will be dearly missed.
