Brian Curtis Rudolph | 55 | Godfrey

Brian Curtis Rudolph, 55, of Godfrey, died at 11:49 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022 at St. Louis University Hospital after a brief illness.
He was born in Jerseyville, Illinois on June 4, 1967, one of three sons born to the late Robert G. and Joyce A. (Lane) Rudolph, and grew up alongside his brothers in the countryside of Dow, Illinois.
He graduated in 1985 from Jersey Community High School, where he participated on the Panthers wrestling and football teams, and was selected as Prom King his senior year.
He went on to attend Lindenwood University, where he earned his BS in Computer Science. Shortly after graduation, he began working with what is now GeoDecisions, where he currently was serving as a Project Manager out of their St. Louis location.
Brian’s interests were varied, and he was passionate about all of them. He was a muscle car enthusiast, participating in more car shows that you could mention, and enjoyed the Hot Rod Power Tour. He was dedicated to fitness (with his weakness being ice cream) and enjoyed being active in the outdoors, whether it be hiking, jeeping, exploring, or spending time on the beach. Brian was also gifted musically, and enjoyed playing the drums and guitar.
Being a Dad, however, was Brian’s greatest joy and accomplishment. He took great pride in his two children, and enjoyed every moment spent with them, attending all of their activities. He took being a Dad to a new level, and his love for them knew no boundaries.
He is survived by his two children, Tristyn Rudolph of Jerseyville and Blake Rudolph of Godfrey; two brothers and sisters in-law, Jeff and Lisa Rudolph of Brighton, and Jason and Kathy Rudolph of Fieldon; along with his step mother, Micky Rudolph of Dow.
Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, 2022 at Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville.
Funeral services will be conducted at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 26, at the First United Methodist Church in Jerseyville, with Rev. Bob Taylor officiating.
He will be laid to rest in the East Newbern Cemetery in Dow.
Memorials may be given to a fund established to assist in placing a permanent monument at Brian’s gravesite, in care of Crawford Funeral Home.
