Dear Lisa, I am so sorry for your loss.  I used to work with Rod at Horst and was upset when I heard of his passing.  He used to talk often about you and your children, and I shared stories about my children with him. He was a good man and I know that even though he is not here physically, he will always look over you!
God bless you all,
Justine Green

Sending love and prayers to all of Rod’s family. In the 11 years I got to know him, I learned quickly that he had a kind heart and was a sincere and caring advocate for the employees who reported to him. I always loved catching up with him when I saw him, and I will miss him dearly. He was patient, funny, protective, and loyal. Lisa, Trisha, & Remington – I hope you know how deeply he loved you all, he talked about you often. May your memories and love bring you peace in this difficult time.

Lisa, we were so very sorry to hear about Rod’s passing.  You and Rod were some of the first people I met in Lancaster when Jeff introduced me to his family, and we always loved seeing you over the years we lived there.  We’ve been thinking about you and your family often and hope your family can find peace and share memories of many good times together over time.

Dear Lisa and family,
I read today of Rod’s passing in the newspaper. Please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. 💖 My memories as an L-S teacher will always see you both as spirited teenagers, ready to go out into the world and make your mark on it. You certainly have done that. Prayers being lifted to you and all of your family.

Although I only knew Rod for a few years, I enjoyed working with him and considered him a friend.  He cared passionately about his job especially the well-being of his teammates.  Whenever any of his guys had problems he would bend over backwards to make sure their issues were resolved.  We shared many common interests and views and I will truly miss his company.  To the Lantz family, I will keep you in my thoughts an prayers.  May the Lord offer you comfort in this time of grief.
