Curtis “Curt” Henry Tudahl, 77 of Rushford, Minn., died Friday, December 20, 2013 at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center after losing his battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Curt, one of ten children, was born on September 16, 1936 in Peterson Village to Henry and Clarice (Haugen) Tudahl. He was confirmed in his faith in 1951 at Rushford Lutheran Church. He was introduced to Audrey Wick in February 1960; they were engaged in April, and married on September 24, 1960. Curt and Audrey were longtime members of Rushford Lutheran Church. In his younger years, Curt helped usher and served codfish suppers. They also loved dancing together. Curt was light on his feet and his heels rarely touched the ground. While raising his children, Curt worked various jobs from carpentry work with his dad to Midland Co-op, UBC & Winona Industries.

Curt’s love of children led him to drive school bus in Rushford from 1980-2007. He loved taking care of his cars. They were always clean, never dirty, and he took the same pride in his school bus, which he washed every morning before picking up students. Curt was an all-time fan of the Minnesota Vikings, Twins and he loved Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jr.

He is survived by his wife of over 53 years, Audrey Tudahl; children, Beth Tudahl and David Tudahl, both of Rushford; siblings, Beverly Hallum of Rushford, Janice (Ken) Gaustad of Houston, Minn., Milton (Leslie) Tudahl of TN, and Rebecca (Alan) Hanson of Rushford; and brother-in-law, Merv Stennes of Rushford.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Delores Zitzman, Betty (Bill) Wolfe, Patricia Stennes, Elizabeth Tudahl, and Cheryl Tudahl; nephew, Randy Hanson and brothers-in-law, John Hallum and Jerry Holter.

A gathering of family and friends will be held from 3-6pm on Sunday, December 29, 2013 at Hoff Funeral & Cremation Service in Rushford. Funeral service will be 2pm on Monday, December 30 at Rushford Lutheran Church with visitation one hour prior. Reverend Roger Michaelson will officiate.
