Obituary for Rhodes Mark Trider

It is my sad duty to confirm the passing of my dear brother, Rhodes Mark Trider of Dartmouth.

Passing peacefully in Alberta on March 10th, 2020 and will return to his beloved Nova Scotia.

Predeceased by his parents, Edward and Edna Trider, niece Tammy and close friend Norman OverDyke. Survived by sister Anita, brother Gorden and family.

A special mention to the Overdyke family who traveled on numerous occasions to spend time with Rhodes as recently as December 2019 and also to his dear loyal friend of thirty years Rhonda (Brian). To Barry, Matt, Robin, Herb, Carolyn and all at Dominion Diving, he considered you his second family.
To his many friends who knew him as Rhodes, Rocky, Captain Trider, Rhodsie Toadsie, Young buck, Dusty Rhodes, R.T.
Rhodsie Riviter, and his favorite, Captain Hollywood, he loved you, one and all.

Due to the current health crisis, a gathering will take place in August, to be announced in the Chronicle Herald and the Born and raised in Dartmouth facebook site, at a later date, circumstances permitting.

God called your name so gently,
That only you could hear.
No one heard the footsteps, of the angel drawing near.
Softly from the shadows
there came a gentle call,
You closed your eyes Rhodes, and went to sleep,
and quietly left us all.
