David N. Rhodes
David Rhodes, age 79, has gone on to be with his wife, Margie, and daughter, Bonnie Ruth.
Dave was born in San Antonio, Texas, and proudly served in the U. S. Navy on the USS Altair AKS-32 in the early 1960’s. He retired from the electronics department of Sun Pipe Line Co in 2004.
Dave wore many hats during his life, clerk, sailor, aircraft mechanic, electronics technician, but he liked his husband and father hat best.
He is survived by his daughter, Sharon; sons, Richard and Robert; sister, Lynda; granddaughters, Lyndsey and Nacole; grandsons, Kelly, Chase, and Cory; and great-grandchildren, Kaydence, Kylan, Jayden, Nathan, and Faith.
Throughout life’s travels as Son, Grandson, Husband, Father, Grandpa, and Great-Grandpa, over the miles and through the decades, Dave was lucky enough to meet the people he came to love as family and friends and maybe that is what the real purpose of life actually is.

Cremation arrangements for Mr. Rhodes were handled through Broussard’s Crematorium, under the direction of Broussard’s, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont.
