Rufe and Martha were avid travelers to Europe, Asia and South America, in addition to many US destinations. Rufus achieved his dream upon opening Ambassador Travel Service in 1972. He was most happy at home or at his beloved farm in Mars when planting his vegetable or flower gardens. There will be no visitation.
