 Rodney was born in St. Lawrence, NL to Herbert and Therese Slaney, the youngest boy of eight children.  Rodney was known for his great sense of humor and love of his family.  He was a storyteller and loved a great laugh with friends and family.  He was a dedicated worker with Armour Transportation for 20 years.  He was a devoted husband to his wife Barbara, of whom he adored, a proud father to his son David, and a fabulous Poppy to his grandson, David and granddaughter, Skyler.  Rodney had a heart of gold.  He was a kind, gentle man who loved life and family.  He was in his glee when he was on his back deck barbequing for family gatherings and sharing his love of watching concerts from his prize collection.
