Before retiring, he worked as a laboratory technician at the Gary Chemical Corp. in Leominster. Several years ago, Rod relocated to Ocala, FL; Once there, he was able to spend his last years with his sons, Rod Jr., and Scott. Rod was known for his compassionate and loving personality, bringing a calm sense of what it feels like to gather with family and friends on holidays or a day at the lake. He shared that gift with all of us, from coast to coast.
