Rod raised cattle, corn and alfalfa for many years at “Fuller Farms” near Grant. He and Donna owned an antique store in Imperial called Class Act, and he also owned a business selling collectible firearms. Rod was an avid collector of western artifacts and artwork. He and Donna also enjoyed giving gifts to a local family in need each Christmas. He was a proud supporter of our veterans and flew a large American flag in his front yard.
