    I knew Rod at Optronics and he and I did allot of hunting and shooting together while I lived there. After I left Florida, I lost touch with Rod but remember him fondly for what a great, kind person he was. It is so sad when you find out someone that meant so much to you during that time has passed. We had some great times ice fishing! Rod was a great guy and he and Wayne Stone had great times hunting. I only wish I would have gotten in touch with Rod after I left MA but my only family and work took up much of my time. Life passes too fast. Thank you Rod! Thank you! RIP.
