I loved his tender spirit always asking about someone else rather than lingering on his own troubles, while he was suffering by the bedside of his beloved Rosie.
I remember him bringing Rosie to church work days trying to keep her as active as possible, he was in love with until his last breath. He was a good example for all to follow.

Our love goes out to Cheryl, Verda, Michael and all of our family during this time & always.

Roddy was my buddy! I was with him and Rosie when he took such good care of her when she was under hospice care. We have stayed in touch ever since then. He loved going to the Gospel singing events but didn’t want to leave Rosie. He truly loved her! I finally talked him into going once because he was needing a break. He will be truly missed!!

I was blessed to get to know Mr. Steele for the few years that I did. I loved to just sit down and have talks with him. He always had some great stores to tell me. And I learned alot listening to him. He was a amazing man. Our Prayers are with all of his family.
