Not sure what to say?

John,
I am so sorry about Rodney.
He was special in so many ways.
I can't hardly think about him without smiling. Great sense of humor and that laugh of his was enough to make your day. And who can forget his standard greeting when you saw him: "Give me a nickel."
He will be missed.

I was in the first grade with Rodney almost 60 years ago and I remember him well. As a child, he had a joy and a smile that was contagious. May he rest in peace.

We spent a many of day at the gym together. Rodney always had of way of brightening up your day. We send our deepest sympathies to the family.

You know that I wish I could be there with you. Circumstances prevent me from traveling there. My heartfelt sympaththes are with you. Rod was a very good friend. May the LORD be with all of you during these times. My love to all.. Ronnie.

I am so sorry to hear of Rodney’s passing. Although I have not seen him in years, the young man I remember is just as described in the obituary, a friend to all, who I’m sure is already being missed by family and friends.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
So sorry for your loss John!! We will keep you and your family in prayer.

John and family:

I am saddened by the news of Rodney's passing. Rodney and I were classmates at Warren Easton so many years ago. I pray that you and yours find peace at this difficult time.

John
So sorry to hear about Rodney. Such a sweet, gentle man. You and your family will be in my prayers.

John and Family,

Please accept my prayers and condolences at the loss of Rodney. We had good times as kids at the little league ball park! May Rodney rest eternally in the peace of Christ, and may God bless you and your family during this time of loss.

Rodney David Boozman passed away on Saturday, May 15, 2021. He was 65 years old, two weeks shy of his 66th birthday. He was born June 1, 1955, in Alexandria, Louisiana, the third child of Curtis Earl Boozman, Jr., and Mary Ellen Smith Boozman. He was a lifelong resident of Natchitoches. 

Rodney loved to travel. He was always ready for a trip, whether it was Disney World, the Alamo, a Caribbean cruise, or a casino anywhere, he was ready to go. He was always planning the next adventure. Rodney was a collector. He collected caps, t-shirts, post cards, snow globes, and friends. Rodney never met a stranger. He was a true people person. He loved nothing better than to be with friends and family and he was always the life of the party. But life was not always easy for Rodney. Nevertheless, he dealt with adversity by engaging everyone he met with his humor and fun-loving personality. He will be deeply missed by all who had the good fortune to know him.

Rodney was preceded in death by his parents, Curtis and Mary Ellen Boozman. He is survived by his sister, Patricia (Patsy) Boozman Arceneaux and her husband, Bill, and his brother, John Boozman and his wife, Emma. He is also survived by one nephew, Scott Arceneaux and his wife, Jennifer, and one niece, Erica Boozman Chandler and her husband, Josh, as well as three great nieces, Elizabeth Arceneaux, Laken Chandler, and Palmer Chandler, and one great nephew, Alexander Arceneaux. 

Those honored to serve as pallbearers include David Breazeale, David Dollar, Mike Guilliams, Tommy Melder, Sonny Melder, and Don Bernard.

The family wishes to thank the staff of the Courtyard of Natchitoches and Hospice of Natchitoches for their wonderful care and attention to Rodney during the last year and his final days. You were truly a blessing!
