Rodney worked as a welder for Mayville Engineering Company for 40 years because he loved what he did, who he worked with, and took great pride in his work.

He loved boating and being at the lake. Rodney was a Packers Fan who enjoyed listening to the Packers beating the Bears on Sunday night. He also enjoyed riding around in his UTV and 1985 Corvette, and tinkering with things. His greatest love was spending time with his family, including his cat, Kitty.
