Rudolph Michael Ujcic

Rudolph Michael Ujcic, affectionately known as Pug, passed away peacefully on March 6, 2024, at the age of 72.

He was born on August 7, 1951 and grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He later made his home in Orlando, Florida.

Pug was a man whose presence was felt deeply by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He lived a life marked by generosity, wisdom, and creativity.

Pug is survived by his lifelong companion Suzanne Ujcic, his grandson Keith Flint Jr., niece Jennifer Cline and her husband Monte, niece Julie Kleinguenther and her husband Chris, seven great-nieces and nephews, one great-great-nephew, as well as his loyal friend Matthew Shane Carter.

He touched the lives of many relatives and friends with his kind spirit and fun-loving nature. Pug was preceded in death by his mother Ruth Jean and stepfather William Perko, his father Rudolph Ujcic, his brother Jeffrey Ujcic, and his beloved stepson Keith Flint. Pug loved the Pittsburgh Steelers, Harley Davidson motorcycles, Corvettes and other classic cars. He was artistic and creative. He found expression in drawing tattoos, sketching his favorite cartoon characters, wood-working, and refinishing cars with precision in his designs of paint and decals. Pug dedicated 35 years of service working for Orange County, Florida.

He built meaningful and long-lasting friendships with his coworkers in the Fleet Management department. As we say goodbye to Rudolph Michael Ujcic, we celebrate the life of a man who was truly one of a kind. Pug’s journey through life was a ride filled with love, laughter, and the roar of engines – a journey that will be fondly remembered and deeply missed.
