I used to be friends with him and we walked to and from school together with other friends. He had a great sense of humor and was always entertaining us. I am sure he enriched the lives of those around him and those he met along the way.

I was certainly sorry to see this news.  Rhoddy was a great person and friend through grade school, high school and for some years after.  He had immense charm and it all came so easy for him.  I never saw him ill at ease.  He had a terrific sense of humor and truly enjoyed chatting it up with people.  Women of all ages always seemed comfortable with him.  I know my mother thought he could do no wrong.  And he was a good person.  He was not naive, but I don't think I ever heard him say anything nasty about anyone.  I know for at least some years he developed convention business for major cities and large prominent hotels.  I'm sure he was really effective at it.  I regret I lost track of him, it was my loss for sure.  Rick Guthrie

I remember Roddy well and spent many wonderful times  with the Julian family.  They were all very warm and wonderful people.  I would love to get in touch with Faith but don't know her address.  If anyone has her address, please share.

Roddy always had a smile on his face when he was coming down the hall and had a keen wit. He made you laugh and was so friendly. He is remembered well and rightfully so.

Its really been since senior year that I saw Roddy.  It's hard to be specific but I have to echo the feeling that he was one of the good guys and I too am sorry to hear of his passing.

Roddy and I lived across the street from one another so we were comrades. In the last three years we found each other and had a wonderful relationship. Friends to the end. I miss him terribly.

Farewell, Granny Foo Fah, may you always be the joyful soul we knew.  Rhoddy was a great and fun guy.  I got to know him when partied in HS and college when the "cocktail flag was flying on Bonnie Brae".  That is where he got the moniker, Granny Foo Fah.  His call, not ours.  I saw Rhoddy a few times on Rush St in the early 70's, we partied what else.  I later ran into him in New York, he had become an marketing executive running the "Big Apple" program for the city.  We partied, and parted friends.  I tried to reach him each time I traveled to NYC but he could not get in touch with him.  Rest well, my friend, you are missed.
