WIECHERS, Rodney Glen - Passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, May 15, 2016 in his 83rd year. Reunited with his loving wife Alexa. Beloved father of Carol MacNamara, Brian (Bobbi) Wiechers, and Brenda Maxwell-Wiechers. He was incredibly proud of his grandchildren Christina (Peter) Hayes, Glen Gatenby, Kyle Gatenby, Evan MacNamara, Emma, Caroline and Matthew Wiechers, Timothy (Marcela) and Hannah Maxwell-Wiechers.
Rod experienced a great many things throughout a colourful life. He was a pilot and a scuba diver who went from owning a hardware store in Preston to being a probation officer in Moosonee (with a whole lot of stops between). He was a voracious reader and witty orator who had a passion for making the written word come alive. Rod overcame a number of struggles but with his family by his side, he persevered through even the hardest times. Completing his university degree later in life was a particular source of pride for him and his family. We have no doubt whatsoever that he is livening up a euchre game somewhere with his endless stories and one-liners, with Mom by his side, rolling her eyes but laughing along.
A Celebration of His Life will be held at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, London on Thursday, May 19 at 8:15 pm. Visitation preceding from 7:00-8:15 pm. Memorial contributions to support the London Humane Society or the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
