Theodore Rodden Memorial Fund

My father, Theodore Rodden, (aka Ted, Pappy, Theo) was senselessly murdered in his backyard on August 20, 2014. This attack was carried out by a neighbor, who shortly after taking my father's life, took his own life. It was very random and totally unsolicited.

Those of you who know Pappy will likely remember a most peaceful and loving man with a passion for music and a yearning for spiritual fulfillment.

I am starting this GoFundMe as a way to help my West Coast Family to ease their burden of financial distress that accompanies an unexpected loss with tremendous emotional distress. If you feel moved, please feel free to donate knowing that all donations (minus the fees of this website) will go directly to my stepmother Kaye and my brother Jamie to keep them afloat as they struggle to get by with one less household income. Thank you for your consideration and for your good thoughts and prayers for both families involved. Love.
