Master Chief Rudy Boesch

Master Chief Rudy Boesch, retired Navy Seal and TV reality star from the inaugural year of the hit show Survivor passed away on November 1st.

The Master Chief was 72 in 2000 when he first appeared on the show. He went on to use his fame to help others. A long time resident of Virginia Beach, I ran into him at the Commissary at NAS Oceana one day a number of years ago. While I was starstruck not only because his star status, but his incredible accomplishments during his Naval career, he was humble and more than willing to exchange pleasantries. I’m sure I wasn’t the only person to interrupt his shopping experience.

His family has asked for privacy at this time and has not released plans to honor him at this time. The entire Moyock Christian family joins me in prayer for his family and friends.
