Miss you Dad. Not a second goes by that I dont think of you. I love you so much and wish you didnt leave so soon. I know for a while you thought you would bury me before you passed. But I made it. I will make you proud and see you in the next lifetime. We love you so so much

I worked with Rod 15 years ago. My wife and I were really sad to read this in the HT. He was interesting and a lot of fun to be around. We remained in contact after we no longer worked together, but it's been a while. No more TPS reports for you my friend.

School mate and neighbor a lot of good times. R.I.P

My prayers go out to his family!! He was a good man!! He will be missed!!

Great human and brother. Glad we got to visit and talk during our lifetime. Happy trails...for now.

I worked wit Rod for a few years and found him to be a professional in his field. He left us all too soon. I will miss him.
