Mayor Sarno Issues Statement on the Passing of ‘Fort’ Stalwart Rudi Scherff

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “First of all, my sympathy, thoughts, prayers, and encouragement go out to Rudi’s family, friends, and patrons of the historic and legendary Student Prince Fort Restaurant. Rudi was one of a kind, hardworking, eclectic, and that dry sense of humor. He was so dedicated to the Fort and his Dad’s legacy, and with help, keeping the Fort a fixture in our City of Springfield’s lore. So now he’s not suffering anymore and is up in heaven with his Dad and Andy Yee toasting with a stein of beer. May God rest his soul.”
