Meet Travis Rudolph’s parents Darryl Rudolph & Linda Rudolph
Rudolph was born to his parents Darryl Rudolph Sr. and Linda Rudolph who raised three children, two sons and a daughter in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Rudolph’s father, Darryl Rudolph, unfortunately, passed away in April 2017, a few days before the 2017 NFL Draft. The father of three was shot and killed while working as a handyman at a strip club.
Darryl Rudolph Sr. owned a landscaping and maintenance business and was accidentally shot by Paul Senat, who was moving an AK-47-style rifle and discharged it at Sugar Daddy Adult Cabaret.
After being selected by the New York Giants as a free agent, Travis vowed to make his father proud. His father was a former athlete and played high school football and ran track.
In an interview with the Bleacher Report, the family talked about how Darryl idolized his son and saw the same passion in him for sports. He would attend all of Travis’ football games and was also close to his grandkids.
Travis’s mother, Linda Rudolph, worked as a hospital clerk. Travis was said to be a momma’s boy. Linda is available on Facebook but hasn’t been active on it since Travis’ murder trial began.
It’s certainly a difficult time for the Rudolph family, who have lost their family members in the past few years.
Linda Rudolph is the proud mother of FSU football player, Travis Rudolph. While athlete’s moms are usually proud of their children’s athletic achievements, this time Linda Rudolph should be proud after her son shared a meal with an autistic sixth grader.
The news of the interaction between her Florida State receiver son and a boy named Bo Paske, came to light after Bo’s mother shared it in an emotional post on her Facebook page.
According to Bo’s mom, Leah Paske, for one day she did not have to worry about her son eating lunch by himself. She ended her lengthy post by saying
Travis Rudolph thank you so much, you made this momma exceedingly happy, and have made us fans for life!
Linda Rudolph and her late husband are also the parents of Travis’ siblings: brother, D.J. Rudolph and sister, Terrenie Gosier-Pannell. Linda’s daughter is already a married woman and mother of two.
