Worked with Rod while he was with APM, great guy, he lead an built the business until the right opportunity came along to sell it.
He did a great job and was always fun to engage with Rod. He was passionate about what he did and was always looking forward to the next fishing trip. He was a lot fun to be around, he would tell you what was on his mind all you had to do is ask.

I met Rod when he was running the tire distribution center for Farmland. Always a good guy with a ready smile and a laugh. He will be missed by all.
