Condolence: RIP my friend Rod. Had a wonderful visit with Rod a couple of months ago when he brought a group of visitors to North Platte on the Garden County bus and by chance we bumped into each other. We had some good laughs about our great times together in the Sidney Jaycees. The first time I ever met Rod, I was a newspaper guy back in the day and did a news story about this circus truck with a load of elephants being broke down at a local tire shop where Rod worked. In typical Rod fashion he said a couple of really funny things that got quoted and made national news. Our friendship, as with all of those old Jaycees, endured the test of time. He truly always wanted to make a difference in people's lives and embodied the JC Creed's final words that " Service to humanity, is the BEST WORK OF LIFE! "
