I would like to send my condolences to Tracey and Shannon. It was very shocking hearing about your loss as well as everyone’s loss. He had actually came in to my store shortly before and inquired about a wheelchair. It was nice to see him and talk to him. He was always a kind and humble man. It was always a pleasure working with Tracy and Shannon for as many years as I did. May God bless all of the family. Fly high with the angels Rod!! RIP ?

We love you Rod and Tracey and will greatly miss Rod's upbeat and sincere personality. We got to know you back at the old JRA church and you graciously attended our Super Bowl party in 1999 and put up with our Broncos cheering, lol. You had and will continue to have a positive and Christian impact on our lives as well as thousands more souls. We love you now and always and look forward to that glorious day when we'll all be 7' tall and celebrating together with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Prayers for each of Rod's family members and friends. First met him when he was in Jr High or High School... and our paths connected many times. A talented man has gone to glory. May God give each one peace.

I am sorry for your loss. Even now, I am listening to KADI waiting to hear his voice. His friendly voice with a quick witted joke is something that I looked forward to every day. I can imagine that he’s singing beautiful worship songs to the Lord with his soothing voice.

My deepest sympathy to the Kittleman family. Rodney will be missed. It’s so hard to say goodbye to someone special. May the memories you shared with him during his lifetime fill your hearts with joy and ease the pain of grief when you think about him. Please draw comfort from these words, the last enemy death will be brought to nothing and there will be a resurrection of the dead. All those in their memorial tombs will here Christ voice and come out. John 5: 29 and 1 Corinthians 15:26.

Rod was a great guy who will be greatly missed. His positive attitude while dealing with his extreme physical issues was truly inspiring. He touched more lives than he could have ever imagined. It makes us happy that he will be spending eternity in a place where pain and suffering does not exist. Prayers for the family.

I am deeply saddened by Rod's passing. My heartfelt condolence to his family, friends and colleagues at KADI-FM. May The Lord give them peace and comfort. I had the opportunity to work with Rod twice in Springfield radio. He sounded better than ever on KADI-FM. Despite his physical challenges in recent years, Rod was always brave and was a source of comfort, peace and encouragement. He was a wonderful witness for Christ. Job well done Rod. Rest in peace my friend. We'll miss you. Tom Wahl/Pensacola, Florida
