Rod was one of my counselors when I was in Cadets at Burton Heights CRC (Art Bok was by Grandpa). I have fond memories of camping and the sweet scent of pipe tobacco. I'm sorry I didn't know of Rod's passing until today, the day of his funeral. May the peace of Christ be with you in this time of sadness.
