Our deepest sympathy to Tinky and family. Wish we could come to the viewing and service but due to health problems it is not possible.

Rodman was a part of my life for almost 84 years. I have many memories of him, John William and Margaret Ellen. Our mothers were very close since they were sisters and went to college together and then lived near each other in Blacksburg.

Again, our deepest sympathy and love.

C. S. and Nathalie

Rod was a wonderful person, a great leader, and  a fine lawyer. He will be missed.  I talked to him at an education class  just last week.  He was still learning. May faith family and friends sustain & support you in these difficult days.

Our sympathy to Rod's family.  We met Rod through our travels on bus trips with the Pulaski Hokie Club to see the Hokies play.  He was always welcoming and fun loving.  He will be missed.

Dear Tinky:   I was distressed to read of my friend Rob’s passing. As you well know, we had a long friendship as fellow activists in the Republican Party. We served together on the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors for several years. I, too, like Rob have season tickets to Virginia Tech football and basketball. At most home basketball games I greeted Rob. It was so refreshing to take a few minutes to chat with him.  I will miss my friend. I wish you the best in your bereavement.

I am so sorry for your loss.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  I have found comfort from this scripture at
Psalm 34:18,  "Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.”
