I've known Rod for about 5 years, since I started playing the Parks Group, a great golf group in large part due to Rod's tireless efforts, along with Don Parks, devoted to running the group. We became good golf buddies. My favorite Parks foursome included Rod and I'm thankful for all the great golf memories I have with him, Gerry and Bill. Playing with Rod you quickly learned not to question him on scores or bets because he was always right. Engaging, personable and patient (Try running a golf group that sometimes numbered in the 30s), he was a Man's Man. He will be sorely missed and fondly remembered but more significantly, never forgotten. I don't envision a round, or a day, that I won't think of him and see that big smile or hear that booming, jovial voice. RIP pal and hit it long and straight on the fairways of Heaven.

I was a good friend with Rod in High School, Archbishop Curley High School, in Miami Florida. As other schoolmates have already mentioned, Rod was that fun-loving, spirited bud who never met a stranger and loved life to the fullest. Many of us lived in a modest middle class neighborhood in Hialeah, Florida (a suburb of Miami) and we spent many a day traveling to and from the school via a friend's car or on the city bus, sharing each other's homework on occasion, and laughing always. I ran into Rod on a few occasions over the 50+ years and always received "intel" from some of our mutual friends on Rod's whereabouts and "doings". I too was fortunate enough to see Rod at our 50th High School Reunion in 2015 and there met his lovely wife Tammy. He was a class act! My sadness of his passing is deep. He's there in the Heavens now enjoying his latest venture. God Speed Dear Friend --- hopefully we will meet again ... I know you are in Heaven and I will try to earn that entry too someday. Rest in Peace.

I met Roddy at Immaculate Conception School in the mid-'50s along with a lot of great friends. We rode the bus and had fun on the playground. We ended up at Archbishop Curley high and graduated in '65. He was a great guy and friend. Sorry for his loss to family and friends. By the blood of Christ, may he rest in peace.

I have known Roddy for 64 years and had enjoyed him for all 64. We grew up in Hialeah, FL and went to the same Elementary School ((Immaculate Conception), High School (Archbishop Curley High), Junior College (Miami Dade JC) and work after JC.....Southern Bell. We both retired from Bell. Rod helped me get the job there. He is and was a wonderful guy with a wonderfully boastful voice. He had a heart of gold under his skin. We did everything together back in the day. In 2015, Curley High school had our 50 year reunion and I was lucky enough to get Roddy and his wonderful wife Tammy to attend. Hadn't seen him for 40 year and was soooo happy that Tammy and Rod came. We had some great conversation and relived many memories. Also visited Tammy and Rod at his Ormand Beach golf course and meet his buddies. So glad I got to see him in his new environment. He absolutely loved what he did everyday at the golf course. Now he's gone and I will NEVER forget all the great memories and stories we had. God loves you Roderick Stuart Angus MacIsaac!
