Jacob, Rudolph Robert, born Feb. 1916 born in Edmonton

My good friend Gertrude is 100 years old on March 24, 2014 and I would like to find for her grandson Ryan and the rest of her family, information on Rudolph (Rudy) Jacob her younger brother named for his father Rudolph Jacob senior Pastry Chef at the Hotel MacDonald in 1916 and then Alberta Dairy Lunch. Rudy left home and no one has much information on him. We think the family got notice of his passing in the 1950's or early 1960's in Calgary, Alberta. He may have had a jail record and the family lost touch of him probably because of that as the rest of the family was a very proud family. Any information greatly appreciated. .
