Rudolph D. “Rudy” Brault, 90, Green Bay, died Sunday, March 12, 2017 in a local care facility. He was born February 21, 1927, in Two Rivers to the late Regis and Cora (Payette) Brault. Rudy attended Green Bay East High School graduating in 1945. He enlisted in the US Army serving during WWII. Rudy was a proud third generation member of the “Brault’s Canadian’s” playing with such people as June Christy, Stan Kenton and the Four Freshman to name a few. He married the former Rosemary Konop, who he met while the band was playing at a local dance, on September 12, 1953, at SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church. She preceded him in death on May 27, 2016. Following his honorable discharge from the army he started an electrician apprenticeship and became a licensed electrician working with IBEW Local 158 until his retirement in 1989. Some his most memorable times were spent at the cabin in Wausaukee, spending time outdoors, camping and the road trips with the kids. Rudy and Rosemary were lifelong Packer fans, as well as season ticket holders. He was a member of St. Bernard Parish for 60 years.
Rudy is survived by his three children: Jeff (Andrea) Brault; Cheryl (Rick) Belongea and Nancy (Mark) Bartels, all Green Bay; four grandchildren: Lindsey and Caitlin Belongea and Casie and Mallory Bartels; one sister, Janet Noel, Leander, TX; three sisters-in-law: Pat Konop and Karen Konop, both Green Bay and Kathy (Jerry) LaLuzerne, Arlington, TX; nieces and nephews.
