It is with great sadness that the family of Rudolph (Rudy) Zinn announce his passingon November 6, 2020 . Born in Empress, Alberta in 1954, he is the beloved husband of Kathy Miller-Zinn and son of the late Meta and Herman Zinn.
Rudy began his career as an accountant in banking and later in the oil and gas industry in Alberta with Esso and Pembina Resources.

When he and Kathy moved to New Brunswick in late 1997, they purchased the Tidal Watch Inn on the Bay of Fundy in St. Martins.For 23 years they enjoyed welcoming guests from around the world. When the Inn closed for the winter each year, Rudy and Kathy travelled the world spending time in Europe around the Mediterranean, the Middle East, Turkey, Fijji, the Cook Islands and many wonderful times with friends and family in California.A spectacular trip to Italy, Jordan and Spain earlier this year truly was the trip of a lifetime. Rudy also enjoyed hiking and backpacking in the Canadian Rockies,Europe, California and close to home in beautiful New Brunswick along the Fundy Trail and other special places around the Bay of Fundy.
