  1. Rodney was a true professional in his field. I had the pleasure of working with him as a colleague and a friend. I will miss his intelligence, his insight, his professionalism and his wit!

  2. I remember Rod from those days growing up back in the old neighborhood near Waldron. Condolences to the Brahm family.

  3. A very long month, my ex husband died June 4th we were married for 17 years. He was like Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory, he was a wizard of computer coding. He will be missed because he was unique!
