Rudy Asher passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, October 23, 2011, at the age of 82. He was born in Eagle Pass, Texas on November 17, 1928, son of Robert A. Asher, Sr. and Juanita Falcon Asher. After high school he married Doris Aileen McDaniel on October 11, 1947, whom he loved most dearly for the next 64 years. Rudy was employed at the Lone Star Brewery for 37 years (he would drink no other brand). In his younger years he played semi-pro baseball. His love of the game continued most of his life playing softball in leagues and with family and friends. Rudy also enjoyed 9 and 10 pin bowling, playing in leagues with Doris. Rudy lived most of his life on his farm in Schertz, Tx where he enjoyed riding on his tractor, tending to crops and farm animals and his ever present dogs. Rudy was a great "shade tree mechanic," always working on cars, trucks and farm machinery. He was an active man, taking road trips to Las Vegas and to family reunions in Mississippi. His cars always looked new due to his regular hand washing at home. Rudy believed in homeopathic medicine, coming up with hair-brained remedies to test on family members. He was a bit superstitious, having his hair cut only during a full moon. After retirement he always had a project going on, being a tireless worker who could never be idle when something needed done. He believed in repair rather than replacement of just about anything. Rudy did everything from carpentry to plumbing to electrical work, most of which was done as favors to his friends and relatives. Above all, Rudy was a very kind, humble, generous and loving man. He was devoted to his family, to God and Country. He made this world a better place through his lifelong belief in placing the needs of others before his own and will be sorely missed all who knew him. Rudy was predeceased by his parents, sister Ida May Villareal, and brother Richard Asher. He is survived by his wife Doris, son Rudy Michael Asher and wife Dianne Hoffman Asher, Daughter Susan Asher Harman and husband Allen Wilson Harman, grandchildren Michelle Lynn Scott, Bandon Michael Asher and wife Rodell Jean Asher, Seth Elliot Asher, and Ailee Joy Harman, great grandchildren Sarah Scott, Daisy Scott and J. D. Asher.
