Rudy was born in Newport, Arkansas to Edwin Thomas McBee and Bertha Chaney McBee on February 1, 1944. He was a carpenter by trade and was busy setting up his next workshop prior to his death. He was a veteran of the Vietnam War serving in the Air Force of which he retired as a Senior Master Sargent. Through his 20 year career he helped construct many buildings around the world for the Air Force and for 10 years at UT in Austin. He also owned and operated the Roadhouse bar in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. Rudy married Gloria Porter in November 1975 in Las Vegas, NV and although they did not stay married, they remained friends for life. He loved horses and trail rides, winning at pool, fishing and being with his family and friends.
His awards and achievements rest in our memories of a life well lived.

Rudy is preceded in death by his parents, four brothers - George, Buddy, Ed “Hammer”, Johnny and six sisters – Madge, Madeline, Lucille, Pearl, Peggy and Martha Faye and his beloved quarter horse “Cat”.

The family of Rudy wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Willie Tom Page, Danny McBee, Edania Fisher, Jeremy & Becca Krusell, Brent and Melanie Moore, and Sonny Bates for all the hugs, calls, vacations, visits, laughs, tears and meals. We were happy to share our Dad with all of you, and so many more, knowing that he loved being shared.
