Rodney “Rod” Gustine

| January 11, 2023 12:00 AM

Rodney “Rod” Gustine passed away from cancer and headed off to greener pastures on Christmas day.

Rod was born on July 9, 1953, in Helena, Montana to Bob and Peg Gustine. Rod was born and raised in Helena and throughout his life lived in several Montana towns. He was definitely a “jack of all trades” when it came to his work history, from working in the lumber industry to being a glazier and a little bit of everything in between. Rod loved going for rides in the mountains with his gold mining equipment, sitting around the campfire drinking a cold beer with friends and family and he never missed a trip to “hunting camp!”

Rod was preceded in death by his parents; his brother Rick; and his most cherished baby, Jason William. Rod is survived by his son, Jamie (Angie); grandson, Barrett; his daughter, Jenny (Tyler); and his grandkids Cody and Bailey. He is also survived by his brothers: Randy, Ron (Gayle), Rusty (Teresa); his sister, Robin (Joe); and numerous nieces and nephews. Rod was everybody’s favorite uncle!

There will be no services scheduled but there will be one hell of a party in the Big Hole over the 4th of July to celebrate Rod’s life and everybody is invited.

We would like to thank Parker Adventist Hospital and the Denver Hospice for their exceptional care and compassion during this difficult time.

Memorials in Rod’s name can be made to the Denver Hospice, 8289 E. Lowry Blvd. Denver, CO 80230.
