Robert E. Rhodes, Janesville, WI
February 5, 2014
Robert E. Rhodes of Janesville, passed away at home on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014, surrounded by his loving family. He was 69 years old. Robert will be remembered best as a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend. He married the love of his life, Dinah Tinder on Feb. 17, 1961, at the Church of the Nazarene in Rockton, IL. Together they had five wonderful children. Perhaps one of the greatest lessons he gave to his children was to “never leave without saying I love you.”
Robert attended Hononegah High School in Rockton, and earned his GED from Blackhawk Tech in 1981. He was a dedicated employee at Taylor Freezer Company in Rockton, where he worked as a welder for thirty years.
Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Dinah; his children: Joanna Rhodes, Mike (Roberta) Rhodes, Mark (Pam) Rhodes, Jodi (Steven) Teubert and Robin Rhodes; nine grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and a sister, Donna (Larry) Bressler. Preceding him in death were his parents; his brothers, Jack and John; and sister, Kathy.
There will be a visitation at Good News Christian Center, 2293 Prairie Avenue in Beloit, at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2014. A memorial service celebrating Robert’s life will follow at 11 a.m. with Pastor White officiating.
