Rudolph was my dear Father’s Father. Never Met Him it is his day of birth October 3.  Wish I had the class of either of them.

 

 

Today is Rudolf Loeb’s birthday. He was born on Oct. 3, 1879 in Mutterstadt, Germany and came to the United States when he was 13 years old. He was my grandfather. Although he died suddenly of a heart attack when I was three, I remember him well and loved him very much.

 

Several of his relatives and direct descendants are on Facebook but I think I am the only person still alive who knew him — so I am putting his picture here in the hope that it will remind all of you in time to come of this fine, good man.

 

He loved music, art and books and cherished his family — especially his little granddaughter, for whom he blew smoke rings from his cigar before delighting her by putting the cigar band on her finger, like a ring.

 

And when, one night, she asked him for the moon, he picked up a stick and went prancing down the sidewalk, waving the stick at the moon, to get it for her.
