Obituary: Rudy Aquino, 56

Formerly worked with Howell South Little League

Rudy Aquino, 56, of Howell Township passed away on Saturday, August 4, 2012 at New York Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center after a courageous battle with Mesothelioma.

Rudy was an integral part of the Howell South Little League as my two sons, Christopher and Nicholas, went through the program. Both my boys umpired under Rudy's guidance for years....He will be sorely missed, but I know he is with Chris forming yet another Little League on the Other Side. It is with love and sadness I write this comment.....-Joni Morrissey, Howell, NJ

Rudy was the kind of man who would ride down the street and blare on the horn to say hello. For as long as I can remember, Rudy was full life, wise remarks, and a radiating laugh. Rudy, you will truly be missed by all who had the blessing of knowing such a great man... -Jessica Stonack, Howell, NJ
