My Uncle was a Rhoads in every sense of our family’s name! He loved the outdoors and being in the woods. Our family’s name means “a clearing in the woods”.

He loved being there and I believe is hunting in heaven now with my grandfather!

I love you Uncle!

Steve (Mr Rhoads to me) was a great guy and a great outdoorsman. I have lots of memories of going fishing all over North Ga with him and Andy. I am grateful for all I learned from him while we were out on the water - and he was never short on quick witted comments! Andy, Traci, Mrs Rhoads and family - we are thinking about you.

Steve was honestly the kindest man I have ever met. He always made me feel important and special when in his presence. The love he had and will continue to have for his beloved family is parallel to none other. He was a devoted family man and adored his children and beautiful wife. He was so proud of his children and gave them both amazing, strong roots. He will be deeply and profoundly missed until we see him again some day. Steve left an impermeable mark on this world and a beautiful legacy here for all of us. I’m so grateful my dear friend Traci had such an incredible Daddy. He will be forever loved and cherished by us all.

Steve was an amazing man. He was always so kind and good to me and everyone around him. He and I always enjoyed just hanging out at camp doing absolutely nothing. I’ll never forget one day when Andrew was out hunting ( he sat that one out). It was about 3:00 in the afternoon, he looked at me and said “I’ll take a pull” if you knew Steve you know what that was, if not....it’s a jager bomb. He will be truly missed for sure. Love you Steve.❤️❤️
