Many years ago I worked for Rod and Marilyn as their cleaning lady. Rod and Marilyn were true christian"s. always positive, and grateful for my service. I feel lucky to have known them because these are the kind of people that make the world a better place. My condolences to the whole family.

Marilyn and family, my deepest sympathy for having lost your beloved husband, father and brother Rodney. I am so glad I had a chance to talk with Uncle Rod recently on the phone. From your beautiful writeup on his life, I see that he was afflicted with "nearly off-roading" as his brother Richard was! Oh, there's a pheasant in the field and off he'd almost go. I like to think that Rod's mom and dad, his brothers Dick and Ross and many dear friends joyously met him at the Gates of Heaven. May God be with you and comfort you.

Rod was a man of Great Faith and it was an honor knowing him and being part of the Sunday Night Scripture Group. Our closing prayers at Scripture Group will not be the same without hearing Rod say "For an increase and support of religious vocations". We will miss his smile and cheerful presence at the 10:45 Mass. He is now in the presence of our Lord in praise and worship for eternity.

My prayers for the family’s comfort and peace. When I visited Anne’s home, Mr. Marzolf was a kind and funny man. The world became a little darker losing him. My sincere condolences, Danielle Dutoi Schmidt

My wishes for the family’s peace and comfort. I remember Mr. Marzolf from visiting Ann during HS. He was a kind and funny man. It’s a little darker in the world now.
