Biographical Information[edit]

Don Rudolph's wife, Patti Waggin, was a noted "strip-tease" artist and motorcycle racer, according to The Sporting News of February 27, 1957.

He suffered an accidental death when he was crushed by a dumptruck. The Patti Waggin web site (below) has the story like this: "On September 12, 1968, Don took the company truck to work. Coming down a steep grade the brakes went out, and the truck rolled over. Just three weeks past his 37th birthday Don Rudolph was dead. He left behind a young wife barely 40 and a 7 year old daughter."
