Message: A part of the heart has gone with the passing of Rod, he was an integral part of the S.O.E Pom club for many years, always ready with help if required, he also had the ability to "stand in the background" which is rare in today's society. He also had a great sense of humour, especially when keeping "yours truly" in check at Committee meetings, God Bless Rod, R.I.P Our sincere condolences to Maureen and Family.
