In Loving Memory of Rodney Harold Archdekin
April 2nd, 1958 - December 5th, 2023
It is with great sorrow that the family of Rodney Archdekin announces his passing on December 5th, 2023 at Cambridge Memorial Hospital at the age of 65. He fiercely fought a recent cancer diagnosis and remained stoic and strong to the end of his battle.Rod lived his life to its fullest and will be lovingly remembered by his wife Lori of 39 years. Rod will be dearly missed by his mother Marian and siblings Stephanie (Jamie) and Kevin. He will be fondly remembered by his sisters-and brothers-in-law: Wendy (Wayne), Barb (Milt), Brad (Michelle), Kelly (Richard), Kim (Tony) and Elaine (Greg-deceased / Partner Ron).Rod is survived by many nieces and nephews whom he always entertained with his stories, humour and advice.
Rod grew up in rural Ontario. He learned at a young age the morals and values that he put into action and displayed throughout his life. Rod was an outdoor enthusiast. He loved to fish and hunt at his family’s cottage and hunt camp. Rod embodied and supported everything Canadian from politics, history, interests in our military and all sports especially the sport of lacrosse.Honesty and commitment to family and friends, at work and at home, permeated his life. He always fought for the underdog.
Rod’s family will invite family and friends to a “Celebration of Life” at a date to be determined.In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate that a donation be considered in memory of Rod to support a charity/foundation of your choice or to a local Humane Society.
