Rodney was born in Baltimore, Maryland to the late Frank and Jeannette Warlick. Preceded in death by his son James, step daughter Linda and Beatrice, the wife that changed his life.
Surviving are his children, Frank and Beth, step sons Chuck and Billy. One of the greatest joys in his life was being a grandpa. He loved his grandkids and all the new great grand babies! He talked about them all, even when his memory was fading.
He was signed up before he left High School to enter the Marine Corp on graduation. He served his Country for six years. After his service he moved to NY and was with O-AT-KA Milk for 30 plus years and wore many hats during that time.
Baseball was an important part of his life. He was always at the baseball field coaching, mentoring the areas youth and organizing with other team coaches to keep the program running year after year.
Rodney will be remembered for his dedication to creating and implementing the first youth girls’ softball league in Batavia. Thank you Dad!!
