RIP Rod, a man of strength .guts, and a great sense of humour in the face of the big C an inspiration to us all.
Very sad news.
My condolences and best wishes to his family and friends.
That is so deeply upsetting to learn. I liked Rod; I liked him very much indeed and will miss both him, and his in-put on here. R.I.P. to a true BBS Legend.
Personal satisfaction can only ever be truly attained, by maintaining a realistic balance between ambition and achievement …

The word Hero is all too often abused and ill used but not in Rods case for how he conducted himself towards the end. The manner in which he dealt with and portrayed his problems was a lesson in humility and courage that few of us could probably aspire to.
Another bbs "legend" has gone but won't be forgotten.
RIP Rod "Respect"
My sincere condolences to his family.

I have just noticed this sticky.
My condolences to Rod's family. People have already said it but his fight and his courage were truly remarkable. The BBS has lost one of its more memorable figures.

Can't add any words or sentiments that have not already been expressed.
Rod will be sorely missed.
All generalisations are dangerous, even this one!
My most sincere condolences to Greenmachine's family and friends. I found his many posts, as he bravely battled his illness, inspiring, often humorous, and without the slightest trace of self-pity. You can't help but admire and respect such a man. Rest in peace Rod.
