In remembrance of my Uncle Rod,,my Dad’s brother. I will remember you fondly
from childhood visits and family get togethers and 8mm images of you and Aunt Kathy on vacation with my parents in Florida,
Always kind to me except when I wrecked my Mom’s car and you had to bail me out at age 15.
Rest in peace without pain and with God.
I will always remember Rod as a pleasant and loving person. It was always a pleasure to see him and Kathy at family gatherings. It is sad to lose such a wonderful person. All my love to your wife, Kathy, son Joey and your grandchildren.
