Freddie Lee Rodacker

Obituary Date: Monday, September 5, 2022

Freddie Lee Rodacker, age 69 of Turnerville, passed away on Monday, September 05, 2022, at his home, surrounded by his family. 

Born on August 24, 1953, in Turnerville, he was the son of the late Fred Lee and Marie Morgan Rodacker.  As a young man, Freddie worked with his dad as a logger.  Over the years he also worked as an electrician, drove a truck for Morgan Concrete and owned/operated Freddie’s Small Engine Repair Shop.  Being a man of many talents, Freddie was naturally a jack of all trades.  He was known as the community fix-it man who enjoyed being outdoors, working in his garden and plowing local gardens for his neighbors.  In his spare time, he was also a gunsmith who enjoyed reloading rounds and sighting in firearms.  More importantly, Freddie loved his family and enjoyed teaching his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren practical skills for everyday life. 

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by an aunt, Aline Hickman. 

Survivors include wife of 50 years, Joann Moore Rodacker of Turnerville; son, Joey Rodacker of Turnerville; daughter, Cindy Scott (fiancé, Lance Lovell) of Turnerville; grandchildren, Kayla Scott, Dakota Scott, Bradley Rodacker, Cooper Rodacker, Hunter Lovell and McKenzie Lovell; great grandchildren, Kainan Scott, Everly Scott and Hasten Rodacker; special cousin, Margie Williams; numerous other special relatives and friends. 

Funeral services are 2 pm on Thursday, September 08, 2022, at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Turnerville with Mr. Carl Lee Ivester officiating.  Interment will follow in the church cemetery. 

The family will receive friends from 6-8 pm on Wednesday, September 07, 2022 at the funeral home. 

The family would like to recognize Pruitt Health Hospice for their care of Freddie during his recent illness.
