Rod was like a brother to me in high school. He was brash and outgoing, always with a wry smile and snarky comment. He was always FUN! After high school we were roommates for most of our early adulthood, and I will always love and miss him. He had a heart of gold and I can honestly say I have no memory of him ever being unkind or spiteful to anyone. He was no saint but he was one of the best men I've known. Rest in peace my friend.
