My heart is broken . I heard of Rods passing just today and my sadness is overwhelming. I worked with Rod at Greenberg's. I found him to be one of the nicest men I've ever known. He always had a smile and a good word for everyone. My condolences to his family and may they take comfort in his memory. RIP Rodney.

Lisa, Abby, Kasey, Elaine...I am so very sorry for your loss. Rod was a wonderful guy who loved his family. He was always with his "girls" cheering them on whether it was sports, dance, or life in general. He will be missed by many. My thought and prayers are with you all.

Being a contractor I have known Rod for over 30 years. I have always considered him a friend and enjoyed our many conversations. In recent years we would trade stories of our daughters and how proud we are of them. We always had common ground of the girls involved in high school XC, Umass, nutrition, camping.... He will be missed very much by the contractors he dealt with. I am very sorry for your loss.

We are so sorry to hear of Rod's passing. I remember him as a quiet, soft spoken, very nice guy in high school I enjoyed seeing him at the class reunions, where I found him to be that same quiet, soft spoken, very nice guy. Our hearts are breaking for his family. May you find comfort in your many happy memories and keep him in your hearts forever.
With sincere condolences,
