December 21, 1959 - March 16, 2022

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Vern Rody at the St. Boniface Hospital on March 16, 2022 at the age of 62.

He was predeceased by his paternal and maternal grandparents; father Fred; and brother-in-law Mario Bednarski. He is survived by his mother Mary; sister Valerie; brothers Vince (Laureen) and Vaughan (Jodi); numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.

Growing up in the Wolseley area meant playing football with his brothers and friends all summer and street hockey all winter. Vern also enjoyed participating in many sports at the Isaac Brock Community Centre in his youth. He thoroughly enjoyed the outdoors, whether it was camping, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling or even just operating the snowblower. As long as he was outside, he was happy!

Vern worked for the City of Winnipeg for many years, retiring in 2015. Vern was very proud of the many trucks he purchased over the years and was always willing to give someone a ride or help someone move. He enjoyed dressing up as Santa Claus at Christmas parties (a role he eventually grew into) and his nieces and nephews loved it just as much as he did!

Cremation has taken place and a private graveside service will be held at a later date. In the meantime, Vern's family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page.
