To the family of Rod Bloom. Rod hired me at Nalco many years ago and helped develop me into the manager I became. I have many great memories of Rod. Sherilea & I extend our sincere sympathy to you all. Sincerly, John & Sherilea Brown. Fredericksburg, Texas

I have very fond memories of Rod from our days together at Nalco. He was a great man.

To my friends and neighbors The Blooms. Memories of growing up next to your family bring a smile to my face. Your dad was a very special man and I am so sorry to hear of his passing. Sending love and strength to all of you during this difficult time.

Mary Lou, Bob, Dean, Jeff, Lynne and Cathy - I am so sorry to hear of Rod's passing. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I remember my visits to the "burbs" in the 60's fondly. I also remember Rod's sense of humor and his mastery of joke telling. These memories I will keep close to my heart today and always. I am so sorry that we will not be able to attend the services today (I just found out last night of his passing.) Much love to you all and...

Dean, Kristi and family.
Your father sounded like an amazing man with an impressive history of accomplishments. I wish I had the opportunity to meet him. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family during this difficult time.
My heartfelt condolences...
Vince

To all the Bloom family, I am so sorry for your loss. I have great memories of Mr. Bloom. Basketball in the driveway, golf at Glen Oak and many more. You are all in my prayers.

May God comfort you. (1 Peter 5:6,7)

May God continue to provide your family comfort at this time. Psalms 55:22

We had so many fun times with Rod and Lou. He will be dearly missed.
May wonderful memories ease your grief.
Sincerely,
Sharon and Mike Davidian (Wyndemere and Oak Brook)
