Rudolph Valentino Falbo, II, “Rudy,” born on August 2, 1970, passed away at the Hubbard Hospice House in Charleston, WV on October 22, 2023 from a two-year journey with colorectal cancer. He was lovingly surrounded by his family and friends. Rudy met his diagnosis with hope, bravery, and integrity – much like how he lived his life.
After graduating from Valley High School in Smithers, WV, Rudy served in the United States Army from 1989 until 1996. He was stationed at Fort Polk in Louisiana, Fort Benning in Georgia, Fort Sam Houston in Texas, Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Carson in Colorado, and Yuma Proving Grounds in Arizona. He received specialized training in crane operations and radiology technology while serving in the Army. Rudy left the military and served in the medical field as a radiology technologist in West Virginia, Virginia, and South Carolina. He completed his career at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Beckley, WV.
Rudy is survived by his wife of 31 years, Robin Robinson Falbo, their three children, Joshua Franklin Falbo (spouse, Shealyn); Kaitlyn Marie O’Bryant (spouse, Cory); and Adrianna Michelle Pralley (spouse, Tyler); five grandchildren: Tatum, Rhett, Holden, Riggs, and soon-to-be Rudolph Valentino Falbo, III (due December 2023) who will continue his namesake. Rudy was the only son of seven children of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Valentino Falbo formerly of Montgomery, WV. Rudy is also survived by his mother, Mary Falbo Ackerman, and six sisters, Maria, Valerie, Rebecca, Delanea, Vanessa, and Kathryn, two brothers-in-law (Todd and Bryson), one sister-in-law (Heaven), seven nieces and five nephews, and his mother-in-law, Sandy Whitt-Wade. Rudy is preceded in death by his father, Rudolph Valentino Falbo (2008); stepfather-in-law, Mike Wade (2014); maternal grandfather, Arby Franklin McCoy (1998); maternal grandmother, Kathryn Sybil McCoy (2000), and paternal grandparents, John and Mary Falbo.
Rudy is most known for being a man of his word, standing up for what he believed in, and his Patriotism. He prioritized his family and spending quality time with the people he loved most. His favorite pastimes included taking his grandchildren out for ice cream, weightlifting, hiking with his dog, Bourbon, and riding his motorcycle. He enjoyed all of these activities throughout the majority of his life. He maintained a positive attitude and uplifting spirit, even while undergoing a rigorous regimen for cancer. All who knew Rudy were impressed by his courage and strength, especially during challenging times.
Rudy was a member of the Ascension Catholic Church in Hurricane, WV and regularly attended mass while raising his children. Most recently, he also attended the First Baptist Church in Hurricane, WV.
