My thoughts and prayers are with the Rhoads family. Dick was someone you could not forget, his passion and gusto for life was extraordinary. We are blessed to have fathers that came from the "greatest generation".

My condolences to the Rhoads family. Dick was one of my father's dearest friends, they were "flying buddies" I have many great memories of visiting with Dick and family going back many years. Because of Dick, my dad was able to fulfill his life long dream of learning to fly. I remember flying to Oshkosh in Dick's plane one year, sleeping in sleeping bags under the wings. Another time he took me on a trip to somewhere in Ohio to bring back an airplane hanger in (and on top of) an old school bus. Also the fly-ins at the Watervliet airport with the pancake breakfasts. A life richly lived. Mark Brame, Byron Center MI
