Lone child of Earl W. Bower and Mahala Mae Smith. 

Rodney was the caretaker of Pioneer Cemetery for 40 years and worked at Strippit and Ward Hydraulics. Rod loved playing euchre with his friend Wally and hunting with his friend Nolan.

A special thanks to those 2 great grandkids Marit and Jena and my son in law Rambo, one hell of a man. Cheryl, three eggs over, white toast, and a Pepsi. See you. R/B
