Obituary for David "Dave" Rodola

David “Dave” Rodola died peacefully at home on August 4th, 2021 in Palos Park, Illinois at the age of 72.

Dave is survived by his wife, Bernadette; daughters, Janis Christianson (Mark), Lori Bartley (Justin); grandchildren Joshua, Aiden, Averey and Justin. He is preceded in death by parents, Anthony and Francis and brother, Daniel.

Dave was born on November 11, 1948 in Newark, New Jersey. He graduated from New Jersey Institute of Technology with a degree in Civil Engineering and a member of the Tau Delta Phi fraternity. He married Bernadette in 1969 and enjoyed 52 years together.

Dave's life was spent in laughter and dedication to his many dear friends and family.

When he was not busy attending the many events of his grandchildren, Dave enjoyed reading, being outdoors, traveling, gardening and fishing. He passionately advanced the softball league in East Hanover, New Jersey and loved to coach his daughters.

Dave was generous with his time, frequently traveling to the many events and life celebrations of those who loved him no matter if they were family, work friends or those who shared his hobbies, loves, and passions. He loved being the host, bringing together so many people with food, dancing, jokes and drinks which enriched all the lives he touched.
