Whether he was running, boating, flying, scuba diving or taking a peaceful walk, he was full of lifeand love. Rod's profession was knowing the human body and mind and sharing this knowledge with all that he touched. In whatever he pursued, his ultimate goal was to live life at this moment and to the fullest. You have been taken from us in the middle of the conversation and you, as always, will have the last word.
