I worked with Rod at EORH, I got to know him and he truly was a kind hearted person, who always made me laugh, and always spoke no matter what kind of day he was having. He will be truly missed and my deepest condolences to his family.

To the family, you have my sympathy. When I was 27 I had a serious spinal cord injury and had to learn to walk again. Rod was there for me. His humor so helped me get through the worst time in my life. You can be proud to know he helped many not just me. He will be missed. Blessings to all of you.
