Rudolph Kenneth Converse was born on May 19, 1941 in Laconia, New Hampshire. After struggling with several illnesses, he passed away at the age of 78 at Concord Hospital.

He was raised in the Holderness area and attended the one room school there. He later attended the new school that was built that now had several classes. He then attended the new school in Meredith and graduated from there. He married Betty WiImot in 1958, at the age of 17. Then he took one year off before returning and completing high school. He attended Berkshire Christian College for one year in Massachusetts. He and his family moved to Center Harbor. He started working for an electrician and learned the trade. After living in that area and the Holderness area for several years, he wanted a change and decided to go on quite an adventure. In 1973, He packed all his belongings and animals in a semi-trailer. His wife drove the car, his sister and her husband drove their vehicles and the caravan left for their adventure in Minnesota. For 12 years, they enjoyed the life of a dairy and crop farmer. They loved the years there with the wide-open prairie. In 1985, they felt they needed to be back in New Hampshire with aging parents. He worked as an electrician first for someone else and then later started his own company. He retired at the age of 62.

Rudolph, better known by most as either Rudy or Ken, was very active in whatever church he belonged to. He was always found helping out in whatever way he could. He often was found teaching Sunday School, serving as deacon or board member, and many many years with prison ministry.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Rudolph and Jessie Converse, his brother, Donald Davis, and his sisters, Patricia Haire and Joan Roberts. He is survived by his wife, Betty, his sons Mark (Brenda), Timothy, Allen (Susan), Peter (Meghan), Stephen, and Jonathan, and daughter Kathy (Michael) McCartney. He had 16 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren. He is survived by his sisters, Jean Juraska, Majorie Paquette, and Doris Packard.

The Callings hours are from 6-8 pm on Monday, August 26 at Mayhew Funeral Home in Meredith. The Memorial service will be held at Calvary Bible Church on Tuesday, August 27 at 11:00 am.

My Deepest Condolences to Rudys family and friends. I First Met Rudy At the Prison, While I served the state of NH as a Correctional Officer, Greeting him weekly as he held Bible study s there. I latter met Rudy at a Church that My Wife and her family attended in Meredith and got to know him better there. I will miss his smile and warm greetings every time I saw him and Betty. I had lost touch of them for quite some time since the divorce of my wife but often though of him and the warm impression he made spiritually in my life. Thanks my friend, I will miss you. See you latter.
