Rod was born July 10, 1942 in Chicago, IL. He was a graduate of Fenger High School in Roseland, Chicago. Rod never forgot his roots and loved to fondly reminisce about growing up on the south side of Chicago and spending summers with his cousins on his grandmother's farm in Ober, IN. Rod moved to Upland in the '70s and was in the mortgage business for 45 years. His family and friends will always remember him as larger than life and one of a kind, and he will be sorely missed by them.
