David N. Rhodes

January 22, 1943 - January 8, 2023

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.

Memorial contributions for Mr. Rhodes may be made to Southeast Texas Humane Society, 2050 Spindletop Avenue, Beaumont, Texas 77705.

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

    My Uncle Dave was always nice to me, even when my big mouth drove him crazy. He let me talk on his radio station and play music when I was a (very lost and lonely 14yr old) girl. He and Aunt Margie always made me and my sisters feel welcome. This world is very lucky to receive a bright angel from the Rhodes Family.

    Mr. Rhodes military service tells me that he was a man of honor. Although I never met this man, I do know his sons and I know what fine men they are, so he must have been a very good father as well. The Rhodes family has our deepest condolences. May they find strength in their wonderful memories during this difficult time.
