Obituary of Christopher Charles Rhodes
Christopher passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 29, 2023, at the age of 71. He is survived by his loving wife of nearly 20 years, Gina (nee. Tadisch). Chris was the adoring father of Francesca Rhodes, Bernadette Weiss-Rhodes, Christopher (Heidi) Rhodes, and Gregory (Pam) Rhodes. He was the proud grandfather of Christopher (Aileen) Rhodes, Austin Weiss, Tressa Weiss, Noah Rhodes, Natalie Rhodes, Charlotte Rhodes, and one great-grandchild, Vincentious Rhodes. Chris has a large circle of friends, a few were known as “peas in the pod.” He truly treasured his relationships with his friends and extended family. He also adored his family dog, Evie Lou, with all of his heart. He was preceded in death by his parents, Jefferson E. and Elsie Mae Rhodes.
Chris worked for Siemens. When not working, he loved to tool around on his Wheel Horse tractor, gardening, yard work, and tinkering with anything that had an engine. He was a true gearhead at heart. Chris had a fun-loving personality and was always quick to laugh and smile. He enjoyed life around the yard, on his boat, or watching his daughter play fast pitch. He also truly loved to have in-depth conversations with anyone about absolutely anything.
