Anthony “Tony” Ruder: dedicated and faithful friend

Anthony “Tony” Ruder is being honored as a Point of Light for his
dedication and deep commitment to Thomas More Prep-Marian.
Tony served in the U.S. Navy from 1943-1945. He went to work for
Central Kansas Power Company and would fill numerous positions
there until his retirement 42 years later. Tony and his wife Armella
Ruder have five children that are graduates of Thomas More Prep-
Marian, Roger ’67 Ruder (SJMA), Rod ’69 Ruder (SJMA), RaNell
’71 Ruder (MHS), Ron ’77 Ruder (TMP) and Russ ’80 Ruder
(TMP). Tony’s wife Armella was a huge fan of Catholic education
and in 1956 when Tony was asked to help with a chicken dinner
fundraiser, it began the start of a life filled with giving service and
support to the Hays Catholic schools. For the past 50 years, the
Ruder family has been visible at Alumni Association functions as
well as many of the school and community events as volunteers.
From attending sporting events, cooking/serving breakfasts and
dinners, taking tickets at the gate/door, to helping create a new
baseball/softball complex, the list goes on and on. Tony and his wife
Armella were firm believers that education is extremely important,
and secondly, if everyone does a little bit, great things can be
accomplished. They passed this philosophy on to their children who
continue their parents’ legacy of stewardship. It is with great honor
and gratitude that we acknowledge Tony’s dedication and lifelong
commitment to Catholic education in our community.
