Roderick McNease obituary

Roderick P. McNease, 50, of Pensacola went to be with his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, August 1, 2017.
Rod was a native and lifelong resident of Pensacola. He attended Church of His Presence in Daphne, AL and was a Dry Waller by trade for 21 years. Rod loved his Lord. He had a heart for the homeless and spent many hours walking the streets ministering to the homeless. Rod had a special way of showing his love to his family and friends. He would say “I am glad you are my daughter,” “I am glad you are my son,” “I am glad you are my mother,” “I am glad you are my dad,” “I am glad you are my sister,” I am glad you are my brother.” Now we all say to you, we are glad you were my dad, my son, my brother, our friend!
Preceding Rod in death are his grandparents that he loved dearly, Glenn and Merle Brewton.
Survivors include his children, Summer Newell (Kenny), Justin McNease, Aaron McNease, Meagan McNease and Benny McNease; granddaughter, Ariel Newell; his mother Glenda Britton (Buck), and his father, Milton McNease (Diane); brother, Buddy McNease; sister Andrea Estill (Dale); step sister, Melissa Smith (Harrison); and step brother, Brad Crawley (Carolyn).
