Charles Roder
October 27, 1931 ~ August 24, 2019 (age 87)

Roder, age 87, of Sioux Rapids, Iowa, and formerly of Linn Grove and Arnolds Park, Iowa, and Branson, Missouri, died on Saturday, August 24, 2019, at St. Luke’s Lutheran Home in Spencer, Iowa.

Charles Floyd Roder, a son of Floyd and Harriet (Chindlund) Roder, was born on October 27, 1931, on the family farm in Marathon, Iowa. Growing up, he attended grade school and high school in Marathon, graduating from Marathon High School in 1949. To serve his country, he enlisted in the United States Army on February 5, 1952. Honorably discharged on January 5, 1954, he started a lifetime of farming as a steward of the land. On August 28, 1955, he married Eloise “Loy” Peterson at the Lutheran Church in Linn Grove. Subsequently, they were blessed with four children: Shannon, Shane, Charlie, Jr., and Angela.

In his free time, Charles enjoyed bowling, hunting, fishing, boating, and entertaining at his lake residence. Indeed, he treasured spending time with his wife and especially dancing with her. Undoubtedly, he will be, deeply, missed by all who knew and loved him.

Those left to cherish his memory include his children: Shannon (Terri) Roder, of Marathon, Iowa, Shane (Marti) Roder, of Clarinda, Iowa, Charlie (Tracy) Roder, of Livermore, Iowa, and Angela (Chris) McCleary, of Lowell, Arkansas; his grandchildren: Logan Geisinger; Christopher (Katie), Paden (Sydney), Ryan (Samantha), Shane, Jr., and Skyler (Ashley) Roder; Gaige and Trinity Van Engen; and Shonda (Colby) Vetter; his great-grandchildren: Brooks, Emmett, Henry, Jamison, Tenley, and baby Roder; and Adelia and Oaklei Vetter; as well as extended family members and friends. Charles was preceded in death by his wife, Eloise “Loy” Roder; his brother, Richard Roder; and his parents, Floyd and Harriet Roder.
