I'm heartbroken & sad to hear of this news, as we met in Boston at movie screenings we frequented for years. Been trying to reach you but no answer, as we kept in touch regularly. Funny guy & true friend, generous & full of heart. Will miss you, Rodney... until we meet again.

My deepest sympathy to to your family. I’ve known Rodney through the Boston movie group for many years. He was a great person & friend. We enjoyed the movies together. He was a very generous person & will be greatly missed. Sorry I did not find out about his passing until now as I had been in Florida since August. Rest In Peace Rodney.

Dear King Family
Rodney has been an Insurance Customer for a very long time. He was always very Kind and I enjoyed talking to him about Steelers and the Patriots. We always enjoyed his company when ever he would visit our Agency. We considered him as friend and wish best for him.
God Bless you Rodney
