Rodney’s love for his country and strong beliefs about freedom led to him making the decision to enlist in the United States Marine Corp. After boot camp he married his high school sweetheart Brenda Melancon. While in the Marines, he was part of the Sentry Dog Kennels, and served his time in Vietnam with the k-9 corp. He came home a year later honorably discharged.

rn

He moved to Houston with his wife in 1972 whereby, he became and worked as a licensed plumber until his retirement at age 62. Rodney enjoyed spending his time outside fishing, camping, hunting, and gardening. He was also proud of his accomplishments as an award winning pigeon handler. He was above all else a man of honor and integrity. Rodney Dean Wyble will live on lives of all who knew him.  In lieu of flowers the family wishes memorials to Disables American Verterans. www.dav.org

Remember Me

rn

Do not shed tears when I have gone but smile instead because I have lived. Do not shut your eyes and pray to God that I’ll come back but open your eyes and see all that I have left behind. I know your heart will be empty because you cannot see me but still I want you to be full of the love we shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live only for yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of what happened between us yesterday. You can remember me and grieve that I have gone or you can cherish my memory and let it live on. You can cry and lose yourself, become distraught and turn your back on the world or you can do what I want – smile, wipe away the tears, learn to love again and go on.
