Rudy, You were an inspiration for not only me but for all us youngsters (at the time) back in the day when we were learning what it was to be a shipyard worker. Yard birds as we called each other, to Steel worker as I’m proud to say today. Your patience and understanding were always there through the mistakes and mischief we got into. Under your leadership we were able to put the graving dock back together in order to get it ABS and Coast Guard certified at Port Richmond Shipyard. You will truly be missed but your legacy and inspiration will go on. Godspeed Chief. Andy
Thank you for your kind words and sentiments shared. Our father was very passionate about his position as Dock Master, the shipyards he was affiliated with, mentoring employees and his contributions of knowledge throughout his career until his last ship sailed on March 12, 2017.
Thank you for the kind words in respect to our father Rudy Brito.
He was very proud to represent the shipyard as a Dockmaster and those who worked with him.
