Paul W. Rhodes

Paul William Rhodes, 81, died at home in Leesburg, FL on Thursday November 5th, 2015.  He was the husband of Marge (Gonzalez) Rhodes.  They had been married for 58 years this past June.  Mr. Rhodes was born in Nuremberg, PA to the late Karl and May (Fisher) Rhodes.

Mr. Rhodes graduated from Summit Hill, PA High School, served in the U.S. Army in Germany, and led a successful career in sales. He and his wife lived in Allentown, PA for over 20 years before moving to Wrightsville Beach, NC and retiring to Leesburg, FL.  Mr. Rhodes traveled extensively, had a passion for sailing, and was a member of boating clubs in North Carolina and Florida.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his daughter Rhonda Stretton (Allen), his son Michael Rhodes (Margaret), two grandchildren Corie Stretton and Bryan Stretton, and his sisters Dorothy Faenza, Jean Bargilione, and Linda Serena.  He was preceded in death by his sister Lois Tyahla and brother Thomas Rhodes.

His family will receive visitors at the family home in Leesburg, FL on Saturday, November 14th, with services at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory can be made to the National Kidney Foundation (www.kidney.org).

Instead of flowers, the family would prefer if you would make a donation to

    Paul and Marge were some of our first close friends when we relocated to Leesburg, FL at Legacy. We did so many things together, especially boating adventures and activities and many trips to Disneyworld in Orlando. I don't ever remember seeing Paul unhappy or unpleasant. He was a very kind and special man. I will miss him very much, and hopefully, my late husband, Dan, is making plans with Paul in heaven. I primarily miss the special times the 4 of us had together and remember the kindness of both when Dan suddenly was taken from me. Rest in peace, Paul. You're a gem!

    Dear Family, I am so very sorry about the loss of year dear loved one. May the thought at Job 33:25 give you comfort in knowing that Mr. Rhodes will return to the days of his youth and be able to enjoy life without the infirmities of old age. My sincere condolences to you.
