After grade twelve, Rodney was an apprentice electrician at Rowley's Electric and attended Moose Jaw Tech where he became a journeyman electrician. In 1964, he ventured to Calgary and worked as an electrician in the winter months while farming in the summer months on the family farm. In 1971, Rodney began to farm full-time and made the move back to the family farm. Rodney was active in the community and enjoyed curling, playing and coaching hockey and was a member of the Lions Club. Rodney was a jack of all trades and spent lots of time at the Uniplex including designing and building the Uniplex's electric Zamboni. Rodney loved the farming life and even towards the end still was very interested in farming and looked forward to drives to the farm. Rodney spent his last twelve years living in the Kyle Health Centre where he enjoyed the staff and care he received.
