Rodney was the tenth child in a family of twelve children born to Minnie Lee (Patrick) and James Wayne Dann. The Dann and Patrick families were early pioneers in a young Orlando.

Rodney was born and grew up on an 80-acre farm in Clarcona, Fl.

On May 18, 1940, he married Georgia Martha Buchan. Their union produced two daughters and one son. They were married for 40 years when Rodney passed.

Rodney loved fishing and spent most of his spare time following this love. In his later life he returned to his garden.

When Rodney's first grandchild was born, the granddaughter called him Poppy. The nickname stuck and the relatives and neighbors also called him Poppy.

Poppy had a great sense of humor.

He will be greatly missed.
