Rod was a natural athlete, excelling in many sports. His true passions were hockey and golf. The lifelong friendships he made through sports were extremely important to him. Rod is a member of the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame. He played with the Estevan Bruins and the New Westminster Bruins, was a Coach of the Estevan Bruins and was instrumental in the creation of the Bruin Alumni. For all of this he was recently honoured as an Estevan Bruins Builder. Rod was courageous, hard working and determined to succeed. His determination to succeed was especially evident as he built his "Crown Advertising" business. He was proud of what he and his loyal, committed "Crown" family accomplished throughout those 23 years. Rod was a leader and valued member of the community who gave generously as he strived to make his "hometown" a better place to live for everyone. Rod leaves fond memories of his kindness, generosity, energy and enthusiasm for life and will be deeply missed by all those who knew him.
