A Heart of Gold

Rodney was born in Mesa, Arizona on July 23, 1948. Rodney had a heart of gold as he would do anything for anyone. He went in the Army at the age of 18 and he earned 2 purple hearts as well as others. He loved to go mining for gold, and loved to go fishing. Rodney stepped on a mine and allowed others to be saved. He fell in love with Nevaeh at first sight. She was what kept him going. She's very smart at 6 years old. A Vietnam Veteran, he will be missed by everyone who knew him. As the Army saying goes, "A soldier never dies, he just slowly fades away."
