Rodney was the best at telling a story-

He could tell a story without exaggerating and and it still be the best damn thing you’d heard all weekend.

I don’t think anyone will ever forget Rodney’s laugh! He was a joy to be around and he was always as cheerful as he looked. I agree that Rodney’s stories were the best. He was loved by all and will be terribly missed. Rodney was a good man.

Rodney always ensured his company was laughing and having fun. I loved his humorous stories and his personality. Rodney was always full of kindness and the desire for the well being of all who were in his company. He was a good man who enjoyed the wonders of nature. All who knew Rodney will miss him, and I am thankful for all the gifts of memories Rodney gave to all of us who had any association with him.

Always loved Rodney’s sense of humor and yet serious commitment to doing things right!
‘Worked with him for the last time on a new farm he ‘built’ for us about 3 years ago. Always made us feel like we were the most important project he had.

I remember when Rodney and Margie were first dating, she invited him to our company Christmas party at the Hush Puppy in Fayetteville. The treat of the evening was the boiled shrimp. Dad asked Rodney how he liked the shrimp…. He said they were tasty but a little too crunchy… He became one of the family that night…lol

Rodney was the most likable guy in our class and we will miss him very much. He had such a kind heart, sweet spirit and yes, a contagious laugh. I’m so glad I got to hug his neck at our 40 year class reunion last year and see his great big smile. He will be truly missed. My heart breaks for his family who will miss him the most. Margie, you, the kids and your family will be in our prayers as you travel this most difficult journey.

I was blessed to know Rodney his entire life. We grew up together as our parents were great friends. I only knew one Rodney, as he was the same person every time I saw him. The person we all saw, caring, genuine and full of laughter. I have been truly blessed to be friends with such a great person. Rodney you will be greatly missed, but I know I will see you again. Prayers for all your family
