Rod was one of those rare people who could put everybody at ease in his company. He was humorous, mischievous, generous in spirit and whenever I think about him I smile. I used to enjoy the conversations we had at the Drift golf club (rarely ever about golf) where he had an uncanny knack of saying something funny or perplexing whenever I was about to take my shot – what a pro! It was a delight to spend time in his company and I suspect he’s already busying himself up in heaven, probably hanging up cd’s on god’s washing line to scare away the pigeons (!!!). RIP Sir Rod.
