Rod was passionate about many things in his life. First and foremost was his family. He loved spending time with his parents, brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews. But his love truly got to shine when he met the love of his life Jennifer Horvath, and when his daughter Jean joined the family in July 2020 (to which Rod always credited her conception to corn-fed beef). Rod was very proud of his family. He provided for them while working for Union Pacific as maintenance away.

He went to school at MMI in Phoenix, AZ where he learned to work on motorcycles. Rod would spend as much time as he could riding his Harley Davidson.

Rod loved his football teams, the Iowas Hawkeyes, and the Pittsburg Steelers. They were the best and no one better tell him otherwise.

Rod was preceded in death by his father, John Saltzman, his grandparents Otto and Grace Saltzman, Orville and Wilma Foreman, and Lowell and Dorothy Bray.
