Rodney had a wonderful, full life. He was a veteran of the United States Air Force. He retired from Indiana Bell after 30 years, but later returned to work for MCI Telecommunications, which allowed Rodney and Joan to travel the country for 12 years until they found and fell in love with beautiful Exeter, California. They moved to Rancho Exeter Mobile Home Park, a lovely retirement community where Rodney and Joan became managers, Rodney enjoyed playing cards with friends, fishing, dancing, and he absolutely loved mushroom hunting in the olive groves.
