Rodney William Huey, 53, passed away Tuesday, March 21, 2017, at his home in Kingsville, surrounded by his loving family.
He was born in Ashtabula on Oct. 26, 1963, the son of Carol Reed Huey and Ronald Huey. Rodney lived most of his life in Kingsville.
He graduated from Edgewood High School and Vo-Ed Technical School in 1981. Rodney was employed with White's Fruit Farm, Telemedia Cable TV, Domino's in Conneaut, the Star Beacon, and GemCare Medical Services. Rodney loved gardening, planting beautiful flowers, and loved doing any carpentry work. He had a real talent of being able to visualize a project and make it happen. Rodney remodeled the family home over the years and made it a real show place. He loved playing with all his nephews and nieces and never missed one of their birthday parties. Rodney was Baptist by faith.
Rodney had been a diabetic since he was five years old and had many health issues, which he never let them get him get down. He always had a very positive attitude and was an inspiration to everyone he met. Rodney was the recipient of three transplants at the Cleveland Clinic.
