    Rod and Shorty represented Promotion Watch admirably and with first class service since the early 1990’s. Rod became a good friend and confidant as the business and friendship grew. Truly a life well lived.

    Our thought and prayers are with your family. Rod was my daughter Libby’s softball coach for the Ralston Girls Softball Association. He was so kind and made it fun for all the girls. We will always have fond memories of Rod.

    Shorty, I am so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Rod when I was a rookie teletype clerk trying to decode encrypted messages with his help. I was in awe of the Radio room and his knowledge about that strange world. Know that he was well liked by many people and he will be missed. Terri
