Rudyard graduated from high school in Columbus, OH. He attended Bible College in Owosso and while studying there, he met Edie. Rudyard became the pastor of Pilgrim Holiness Church in Big Rapids in 1959 and throughout the years, served as a pastor in various Wesleyan churches. For sixteen years, he was the pastor in the Kingston Wesleyan Church. Rudyard was fond of the time spent with the men’s breakfast group. Strong and determined in their faith, he and Edie once went on a six country missionary trip to the Orient. Rudyard loved and continually prayed for his family, especially his beloved grandchildren. He enjoyed fresh air and being outdoors so much that he took great pleasure in yard work. Rudyard’s favorite and life long hobby was miniature electric trains. He had a large collection of miniatures of which he was proud to show.
