Rod (or Roger as we affectionally used to call him) always made people feel welcome and at ease. I remember very well meeting him for the first time at Preston Station where he picked us up with “refreshments” waiting in the car.
Over the years I had the chance to meet him in various locations while he visited John. The friendly welcome and interesting conversations always made it a joyful time.
Rod – Rest In Peace and my sincerest condolences to the Newman family.
