Biography   Rudy (RW) William Marek


Rudy Marek ( RW Marek) of Portland, Oregon had a singular talent. He could make by hand an exact working replica of any antique firearm. That sparked a personal goal for the self-taught gunsmith: To amass a collection every firearm to play a pivotal role in early American history — such as the dueling pistols used by Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, the rifles used by Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett, and the cannons that won the Civil War.

Marek pursued that goal for 50 years, and then bequeathed his incredible arsenal to his three sons, Brian, Dean and Tim. They tell their story Tuesday, Jan. 16 on the FOX Business Network series “Strange Inheritance” with Jamie Colby. The episode -- “Cannon Father” -- will air at 9:30 p.m. ET.
