Rodd L. Graham

May 17, 1965 — April 11, 2022

Rodd Leslie Graham was born on May 17, 1965 in Omaha, Nebraska to Todd and Ginger Graham.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Lynn (Kastel) Graham.   Rodd is survived by his three children, Rachel, Rebecca, and Ryan, his parents, his three siblings, Russell, Randy, and Rebecca and their spouses.

Rodd was a bright, talented child.  He grew up in Omaha and Elkhorn, Nebraska, attending First Covenant Church.  During his elementary school years, Rodd’s fiercely curious nature drove him to grab volumes of the encyclopedia for bedtime reading.  He planned to read them all, and he may have done it.  When Rodd was not helping his father build homes either for others or for the family, he also learned about technology, where an avid interest in computers was born.  Graduating from Elkhorn High School in 1983, he further pursued an expertise in technology with college classes until he was ready to start his own business.

A young man of many interests, Rodd loved camping.  As boys, he and his brother, Russell, spent time in the summer at Eagle Lake Camp near Colorado Springs.  There, not only did Rodd’s love for the outdoors sprout, but the camp also helped him grow in faith.  In fact, Rodd enjoyed these times so much that, when he had children of his own, Rodd made sure Rebecca and Ryan had the benefit of spending summers there too.  Rodd took his family on many camping trips to Colorado, especially to Mueller State Park, one of his favorite destinations.

After moving to Kansas City, Rodd met Lynn Kastel.  They fell in love and were married on November 25, 1995.  Shortly after, Rodd and Lynn purchased their home and acreage in Edwardsville.  All three of their children grew up in that home, and Rodd and Lynn hosted countless visits with friends and family there.

An extraordinarily powerful faith in Christ drove Rodd’s life. Rodd remained a man for Christ throughout his life, sharing his love of God with his wife and children.

A visitation will take place on Thursday, April 14th from 6 to 8 pm at Amos Family Funeral Home.  A funeral service will be held at Crossroads Christian Church at 2 pm on Friday, April 15th.  Burial to follow at Edwardsville Cemetery.
