Rudolph Henry Zuroweste III, 81, passed away June 20, 2019 in St. Louis Missouri. Rudy was born on September 27, 1937 in St. Louis to Rudolph and Viola (Larson) Zuroweste. He grew up in Ferguson, MO, and graduated from De Andreis High School. Upon graduation from H.S, he attended St Louis University for one year. Rudy then served in the United States Marine Corps from 1956-1958, and stationed at Camp Pendleton, California.
