I was fortunate to be able to reschedule a few things and managed to get to Rod Rodda's farewell this afternoon.

There was quite a good roll up which included other than his family, ex service personnel from both the navy and army and many members of automobile clubs, both car and 4WD.

There were many stories told, many with humour, but all with affection for Rod and how he lived his life for his family and for what he achieved. The Box Hill RSL completed the RSL component of the service which was well received.

I passed on our condolences to the family through his wife (Lynne) and brother (Tony) which were well received.

Vale Rod, RIP. May you have fair winds and following seas on your journey.

I feel sorry that I was unable to attend after saying that I would. I had to go and help my mum in the care facility at rather short notice. I am glad that we were represented and that he was given a great send off. RIP Rod.
