Rudolph F. Kuchan

March 15, 1925 - October 24, 2018

Rudolph F. Kuchan Rudolph F. "Rudy" Kuchan, 93, of Mission Hills, Kansas was born March 5, 1925 in Centerville, Iowa and passed away at home on Oct. 24, 2018.
As a kid, he enjoyed tinkering and working on electronics, ever curious of the mechanics behind the machine. After high school, Rudy joined the US Army during the end of World War II, serving overseas with the 236th Salvage Collecting Company, earning the Rank of Lieutenant.
After an honorable discharge, Rudy married Mildred Elfstrom of Centerville, Iowa and to this union two children were born. He attended Drake University and graduated in 1950 with his Bachelor's Degree in Commercial Science and then obtained his law degree specializing in Commercial Law in 1954.
In 1995, he retired from Berman, DeLeve, Kuchan and Chapman Law Firm. During his life, he achieved his pilot's license and truly enjoyed flying and traveling to the family's lake home at the Lake of the Ozarks. In time, his tinkering turned him into quite the handyman and a "jack of all trades," which entailed putting a roof on and replacing plumbing in their home.
He is survived by his wife of 71 years, Mildred; daughter, Karen; son, Gary and two sisters, Joan and Eleanor.
A memorial mass was held at 11a.m. Friday, Nov. 9 at St. Ann Catholic Church, 7231 Mission Road, Prairie Village, Kansas 66208 with visitation at 10:30 a.m. An inurnment will take place at a later date in Oakland Cemetery in Centerville, Iowa.
The family would like to express their sincerest thanks for all the wonderful help and care given during his time of illness.
