Anthony Micheal Rudolph, “Waubojeeg”, age 22 of Brooklyn Park, MN journeyed to the Spirit World unexpectedly on Saturday, December 24, 2022.

He was born on July 4, 2000 in Minneapolis, MN the son of Lori Rudolph.

Tony loved to have fun, make people laugh and prank his “Gran” and “Ma”.  He loved his Native American heritage, he was involved in many pipe ceremonies and church services.  Tony loved speaking French then Spanish – he may have been a linguistic show-off!  He enjoyed “thrifting”, shopping for antiques, cooking wild rice and rum steaks, riding his motorcycle, smoking meat and collecting tobacco pipes.  He loved the woods and hoped to be a survivalist.

Survived by his loving and heartbroken “Ma”, Lori Ann Rudolph; Godmothers Laurie Hilton and Dana Huber; Aunts and Uncles:  Eddy (Judy), Kraig (Joyce), Rose Welter, Shelly Schul, Franny (Danny) Barrett; birth families:  Robertson, White, Shingobee and others.  Further survived by special friends Mekhi, Mady, Freddy, Brian and Gio; many other relatives and friends.

Preceded in death by “Gran” Patricia Ann Rudolph on December 24, 2015; grandpa Edward Rudolph Sr.; Godfather Clayton John Rudolph Sr.; birth parents George Robertson Sr. and Diane Thompson; Aunt “Mousey” Philomine Armstrong and Aunt Francine.

“Ride Hard & Live Free, My Little Punkin’ Head”  Ma
