Rodney, was a member of Whispering Pines Church in Minden. He was an excellent husband that loved and spoiled his wife. He always worked hard and provided for his family. He was a loving father and grandfather. Not only was he a friend, son, husband and dad…. his greatest joy in life was being called “Papaw” by the grandchildren that he loved dearly. He played games with them and shared a lot of laughter.
The family would like to thank Aime Hospice for they gave our dad during this difficult period.
