On Tuesday, October 23, 2018 Rodney Allan Eastman aka Avi, aka ZZ Top, lost his battle with cancer. He passed away peacefully with this family by his side in the hospital in Cranbrook.
Rodney was the most unique gentleman who enjoyed the great outdoors, spending time with this family, and making everyone laugh.
Rodney was extremely loving and proud of his daughters Melanie (Pat) and Cayley. His grandchildren Camryn (18) and Carter (16) were the apple of his eye and gave him a new appreciation for life. Rodney had many amazing friends. Among them was his lifelong friend Maureen, who supported him until his final days.
Rodney is survived by his siblings Tracey, Lindy, Todd, and nieces and nephews; as well as, his extended family in his hometown of Riverton, MB.
Thank you to the wonderful hospital staff at EKRH and to the one and only Dr. Griffioen.
Also a special thank you to the Spring family and special friends who were so supportive through a difficult time.
