Rod enjoyed a number of leisure activities. He was an avid reader of fantasy and science fiction, even attending conventions and creating elaborate fiber glass costumes with his sister-in-law Heather. Rod enjoyed watching movies with his children, card games with friends and spending time at the lake with family and friends. Rod was a very social person. Even after suffering a stroke in 2014 and finding it difficult to talk, he enjoyed weekly group heart exercise, swimming and speech therapy programs. He also enjoyed attending Aphasia camp in Alberta.
