I worked with Rod for many years and he was always there to offer his help to support the shop. To this day my boys still remember Rod as the guy at Birdair that had all the race cars in his cubicle. He was a very nice man and he will be missed. My condolences go out to his family and loved ones.

I have nothing but fond memories of Rod; working with him for 5 years at Birdair long ago; he was an amazing guy with a heart of gold who became a friend for life. I can still hear him calling me “Kimmer”. My heart is broken with this loss. Sending you all love, light and peace.
