On Easter Morning, April 1, 2018, Rodney A. Fleck, our beloved husband, father and brother left his earthly home to eternally soar among the angels. Born January 12, 1946 to Iris (Perry) and Donald Fleck, Rod was raised in Flint, MI by his loving mother and stepfather, LD Leemon, and grandparents, Charles and Gertrude Perry.  Rod discovered his life’s passion for flying at an early age.  As a young boy, he would ask to go to the airport to watch the planes land so often his grandfather started telling him that “Planes can’t fly when it’s raining.” Following his dreams, he built a distinguished aviation career with the U.S. Army and Amway Corporation. He is survived by his wife, Jeanne (Hewitt) Fleck; children, Aaron (Laura) Fleck, Christopher (Amy) Fleck, Jennifer (Vernon) Goss, and Joel (Stefani) Dunn; stepchildren, Shaina (Ryan) Biller, Brandon (Whitney) Hewitt, Kenna (Jason) VanderWest; sisters, Jolene (B) Padgett, Diane (Ralph) Engle, and Nan (Sue) Leemon; grandchildren, Olivia, Aurora, Bella, Gabby, Elijah, Elsa, Merida, Chad, Casey, Cody, Cheyenne, Ophelia, Bronx, Amelia, Caelan, Taylor. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be directed in Rod’s name to The National Kidney Foundation or Wounded Warrior Project.  Visitation with Rod’s family will take place Saturday, April 7, from 10:00 – 11:00 AM with a Memorial Tribute immediately following at 11:00 AM.  Services will be hosted by Stroo Funeral Home – 1095-68th Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49508

Jeanne and family, I often met Rod as he was backing in his trailer, blocking Paradise Park. I seemed to come along at just that time and we often wondered how the other knew what each of us were doing. Although God has taken him to forever soar, in his wisdom, he left all of you to savor the many wonderful memories of your lives together. May God bless the entire family in your time of sorrow.
