Dear Noelle and family, I am very sad to hear of Rod's passing. He was one of the most outstanding and memorable member of our MBA class. He was an active member of all classes and his friendliness and good spirits will always be in my memory.
He will also be remembered for the endless work he did for the many reunions the he orchestrated to help keep the graduating members a close group. Many great hours were spent with Rod in the two great years of my life...many great memories.
Sincerely, Carl de Jong
