In Loving Memory of Rodney Duchaineau – July 17, 1960 – January 10, 2012 (RodsArt)

It is with great sadness that we hear that Rodney Duchaineau, known here as Renderosity member RodsArt, has passed away (link...).

Rod had been a Renderosity member since May of 2003, previously under the membername ICM, and had even served as a Moderator for the Bryce Forum and Gallery. A generous soul, he was always quick to help and always an inspiration to others. Please also see the Bryce Forum thread...

Rod has two galleries here at Renderosity, a digital art gallery under RodsArt, and a photography gallery under ICM_photo.

"Rod was an amazing graphic artist. Along with Rod's experience, training, and natural talents, a caring heart is what made Rod a unique and loving individual."

~ Kristan Duchaineau

It is always heartbreaking to hear about the loss of one of our members. The people I have met here at Rendo are like family to me, and this is a terrible loss. My thoughts are with his family during this time...

I know full well the effects of cancer having lost both my parents to it. 51 is still young and quite an imaginative artist to have lost. My sympathies goes out to Rod's family and friends. Hope you recover well from your grief. Take care.

Rod was a talented and generous guy, and one I was honoured to call friend. I will always remember his help, and his generosity with his "Acts of random kindness". He will be sorely missed.
