My Great-Uncle Roderick was always so happy to share family stories. He was especially proud and happy to talk about his time in the CCC Camp. I loved hearing about his life and the life of my grandfather, his brother Willy. Rest in peace Uncle Roderick.
A fine, Virginian Gentleman, in my assessment. Roderick and I worked together for several years at FMC, and he taught me the fine art of hunting irds” (Bob White quail) especially behind Pam and Rocko if this old man`s memory serves me. We would visit from time to time he to Augusta County and me to Spotsylvania County. Roderick I still have those cassette tapes you made for me 40 years ago. I cherish your friendship. I look forward to seeing you again Kind Sir.”
