He is survived by his children, Dean (Jenny), Pleasant Valley , Ron (Jonathan), Ketch Harbour and Crystal (John), Elmsdale; their mother, Margo, Maryvale and his grandchildren, Ryan, Jenna, Jillian, Analeigh Delaney, Joel and Justin MacNeil. He is also survived by siblings, Hughie (Alice), Bernie (Sandra), Stella (Don), Barbara (Evelyn), Martin (Ann) and Dan(Gail); many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by siblings, Jim, Howard, Jack, Mary, George, Douglas, Veronica and an infant sister.

In keeping with Roddie’s wishes cremation has taken place and there will be no Funeral Mass. A visitation will be held on Sunday, March 1 from 2 – 5 PM in the 4 Valleys Fire Department in Maryvale.
