Supporting healthy fun and community fed his soul. He had an incredible ability to encourage others, making them feel seen and valued for who they are. He will be remembered dearly for his open heart.

Please honor Rod’s legacy by volunteering an afternoon of your time, sharing fun and improving your own community. Send pictures!
It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you. Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad. Love, The Gillilands
