  1. Condolences to the whole Porritt family from Donna and Wayne, neighbors of Rod and Nancy for over forty years. A true gentleman, he will be missed by the entire Cissell clan.

  2. When I met Rod so many years ago, he was a ray of sunshine. He joked, enjoyed, and was one of the most positive people I’d ever known. I remember how well he and my beloved Arnold enjoyed each other’s company. I was so glad that I had a chance to visit with him and Nancy during Keith’s birthday party last year. Now he’s with Arnold and I hope the two of them are still laughing and joking with one another.

    My love and condolences for all of you during this sad time of lose.

  3. Rod and I had a common interest in big cars. He loved his 1981 Pontiac Parisienne and told me of how that car never let him down and was great to drive. I will always remember him for his kind, gentle nature. He was a true gentlemen that I am grateful to have met.

    My condolences to you Nancy, Kieth, Karen and the rest of his family during this sad time.
