Rhodes, David Thomas
David Thomas Rhodes, 77, passed away November 30, 2015. David was born to Nina and Bob Rhodes on February 11, 1938 in Council Grove, Kansas. The family moved to Phoenix in 1951. Unfortunately, David's father, Bob Rhodes Sr. passed away in 1959. David was mentally challenged to a degree but he was able to work at Good Samaritan Hospital for 35 years. He worked in different areas of the hospital but was the most fulfilled as he interacted with patients he escorted to x-ray and later in the Radiation-Oncology department. He and his mother spent many enjoyable vacations traveling to visit family from the West Coast to the East Coast, until her death in 1992. Then David moved to an "assisted living" facility while continuing to work at Good Sam until he retired in 2000. David was a great sports fan and followed the Sun Devils, Suns, and Cardinals faithfully. He was an appreciated member of First Congregational Church until his death. He is survived by his brother Bob (Diane) Rhodes and his sister Judy (Gary) Duncan, some nieces and nephews and cousins. Services will be held on Sunday Dec. 6 at First Congregational Church, 1407 N. 2nd Street in Phoenix. Visitation beginning at 1:00 pm. followed by a Service at 2:00 pm. The family expresses their appreciation for the caring staff of Rose Court Senior Living and Emblem Hospice. A private interment will take place at Green Acres Cemetery, Scottsdale, AZ.
