Neely Crawford Rodden Jr. "Bo", 73, passed away peacefully on October 31, 2017 in Matthews NC. Bo was born in Mecklenburg County to the late Neely and Virginia Matthews Rodden on September 13, 1944. He enjoyed gardening, was proud of the prized irises he grew and also liked Westerns and anything to do with Alaska. Bo loved to hunt for small game and run his dogs. He raised and trained beagles and owned Rodden Dog Supplies. He was also an experienced woodworker and owner of Roddens's Cabinet Shop. But most of all, Bo loved his hunting and dog friends, his two dogs, Gator and Beauty, cockatiel Dandy and his precious family.
Bo is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Gloria Chance Rodden and daughter and son-in-law, Lisa and Rob Perinka.
The family will receive friends on Thursday November 2 from 6 to 8 pm at McEwen Funeral Home of Monroe. A Funeral Service will be held on Friday November 3 at 1 pm at Bethlehem United Methodist Church in Waxhaw immediately followed by burial in the church cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be given to honor Bo's memory to the Land Fund of Bethlehem UMC, 5300 Nesbitt Road, Waxhaw, NC 28173.
