I am so sorry for your loss of Rod. I worked with him in the Hangar for about 6yrs. He had a great sense of humor and helped me to keep a positive outlook during the tough times that I went through. We had a common bond in our both being Green Bay Packer fans so we would talk football most of the time. I know that he loved to golf and bowl. He donated a bowling ball to our Special Olympics team along the way and it was greatly appreciated. He was a great email buddy also. I hadn't seem him in a couple of years but we still communicated. Again my condolences to you Rodney's family. I know that he will be dearly missed. He was a great guy! Kurt Ruby
