Rod graduated from Riverside High School in 1971. He was employed by The Culligan Company for 31 years.

Rod was known as the “Legend” because of his exceptional skills in turkey and deer hunting.  He was an avid fly fisherman and you could usually find him in the woods or the stream pursuing his passions.  He also loved organic gardening, and he believed that if you can’t catch it, kill it, or grow it – you shouldn’t eat it !

He will be greeted in heaven by his dear Uncle Bill.
