Rod is going to be so missed by all of us who shared our building at 490 York Rd. Rod came into his studio on a daily basis, painting was his daily life plan..a wondrous plan. Hardly a day went by not seeing him, he taught me the true meaning of ONE DAY AT A TIME. There was always time for a little discussion (or a lot) in the day when passing Rod...I am going to miss that connection... Our sincere condolences to the family.
Cindy, Rodney & Family

I was friendly with Rod for 2 years in the 90’s We shared a love of art, several times I went for trips on his beloved Harley, He was a sweet and gentle man and we enjoyed each other’s company. The last time I saw Rod was about four years ago when he popped through the hedge and surprised me as I was gardening. Goodby Rod

Rod was a beloved member of the Wyndham Art Supplies ‘community’ and will be dearly missed by the entire staff. He was a regular, and we loved his weekly visits and shared his passion for life and art. Please accept our sincere condolences. So long, Rod.
