Rod made me so welcome when I came to 41 Club for the first time. He was the beating heart of the club and it was only at the beginning of this year that he allowed others to take on the burden of running the club. He was a fine man and a good friend to so many of us. I shall miss his ready smile and the warmth of his welcome.
A marvellous man, who will be sorely missed!
Going to miss that great smile of yours my friend
It was my great fortune to have played Fly half to you
Thanks for the friendship over the years
I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Rod.
We worked together in Barclays Liscard many years ago and remember him as a true gentleman.
I would like to send my condolences to Jill and all the family at this very sad time.
Rod was captain of the 4th team when I made my debut at Wirral aged 16. He was one of a group of Players who made me feel welcome from day 1 and looked after me throughout my Wirral career.
When I was selected for representative honours after leaving the club I received a handwritten letter from Rod in his capacity as Secretary that was a true reflection of his character. I still have it, the handwriting most distinctive.
Whenever we met, whether it was at the club, the school Gate or at the bus stop picking up his grandchildren from school, he was always ready to chat.
He was one of the nicest people I have had the privilege to meet and in common with many others will miss bumping into him.
You will be greatly missed by all the family.
John & Bev Carvell
Rest in peace Rod.
” A true Gent”.
We will miss you, Buddy.

Quite simply, our lives were made better because you were in them. We will all miss you dearly.

Sue and Phil Child
Rod has left us with many happy memories, and he will be greatly missed by many.
I have so many wonderful and happy memories of Rod. He was a true Gentleman in all senses of the word. A kind, loving, generous, fun-loving man, so respected by all who knew him.
He was my first friend on moving to Wirral, and a dear and valued friend of my family for 35+ years.
He was a ‘Legend’
I will miss him so much.
My love to all his Family.
Sue & John Orrill

Such a warm and lovely gentleman. Always a smile on his face and so happy to see us whenever we were over at Clare & Steve’s. It was an absolute honour to have known him. My heart goes out to Jill, Clare, Caroline, Tim, Steve, Izzy, Ava, Daniel & Joe. Thinking of you all now and during this difficult time.

Rod was a great support to us both at Bromborough Golf Club. We had many happy times working and playing golf together. Our thoughts are with his beautiful family.
Still can’t believe we have lost someone so special. The best uncle and friend we could have had. You were such an inspiration and role model to us all and will be dearly missed. Sleep well Roddy.
Vicky & Stu
Very fond memories of Rod. A true gent who always has time to chat and show an interest in what I was up to. Lost count of the amount of times we got him out of bed to pick us up from the pub when we couldn’t get a cab. An example of what a caring and considerate man he was. He’ll be missed.
Bob and Carole McWilliams
