My deepest heartfelt condolences to the McFarland family. I knew Rod through my father, Dick Alkire. Saw him many times at the airport over the years. My prayers are with you all. Sincerely, Neil Alkire.

Rod was great to work with, travel with, and kill time with from Tel Aviv to Vegas, and just a few short weeks ago in Oshkosh. From valued co-worker to great friend. I will miss him every time I hear an airplane. My condolences to the family.
