Not sure what to say?

My condolences to you Laurie and family. I have missed your Dad's daily walks through the neighborhood for quite some time...especially missing my bag of plums and sweet conversation. He was a love. Strength to you.

Mr. Rhoades was also my 9th. grade football coach in Kearney, NE. We really did pretty good for a bunch of nobodys especially at that age. I remember both Chuck and Dave from school! Coach Rhoades obviously made an impression to many of us. I had always remembered his nickname "Dusty". My thoughts will be with your family during this time.

Coach Rhoades was also was my 9th. grade football coach in Kearney, NE. I see other people have mentioned him so obviously Mr. Rhoades was an individual who made an impact on our lives. I'll always remember your nickname "Dusty". My thoughts are with the family at this time.

A very fine gentleman, teacher and respected person. I first met him in San Leandro as I went to school with his daughter Laurie. Later he was my teacher and just a real good person. My condolences to the family.

Dusty you coached me in 9th grade football ,you were a great coach. We all will miss you.

Coach Rhoades was my 9th grade football and basketball coach. He made me a better football player and person. As far as basketball went he tried to make a silk purse out of pig's ear without much acheivement.
He was a great coach and a good man.

Dusty, I remember you well. I was one of your sparing partners. I was a little better than a punching bag as I did move around and moan and groan. Rest in Peace. e

Wayne was my brother-in-law since December 1947 and a big role model since my last two years in high school. I have many fond memories of Wayne. One example, to be a little leery when asked a leading question, as I learned a debate was about to ensue; One that rarely ended in a draw.
Rest in peace Wayne...'till me meet again. Blessings and comfort to Betty and your extended family.
