There’s more than meets the eye to Rudy Perez, 62, of Cuero. Perez, who is legally blind, has always been the go-to guy one turns for help or support. 
Before 1998, Perez worked seven days a week between two jobs. For 18 years he worked at Whispering Oaks as a medication aid and for 28 years he worked at Tandy Brands in Yoakum.
