Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Rodney Lee Kellom passed away suddenly at the age of 50 on Feb. 23, 2017. He resided in Mountain Home.

Rod was born in Pullman, Wash., and raised in Boville, Idaho. Rod moved to Idaho from Tacoma, Wash., where he worked as a granite countertop installer, to Nampa in 2010 with his wife, Dea.

They moved to Mountain Home in 2014, where he resided and began to work with glass. He could make a bird feeder or planter out of a wine bottles and created glasses and other beautiful creations from glass bottles. It was not only a hobby, but it became a skill and trade that he loved.

Rod attended Calvary Chapel in Mountain Home, where he served as the maintenance person who could fix it all.

He especially loved to go hunting with his hunting friends, ATV riding and camping. Rod was right at home while he was in the woods.

Rod was very kind hearted and loved doing things for other people. He would let nothing defeat him. He would work for hours on a project, if need be, but would always get the job done.

He could fix pretty much anything. If you needed anything, he would do his best to help.

Rod attended elementary school in Boville, Idaho, and was a veteran of the U.S. Army and lived in Hawaii for a time.

He is survived by his son, Steven Lee Kellom; his daughter, Marissa Musgrave; his dog, Sadie, and many family and friends.

A memorial will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 2, 2017, at Calvary Chapel, 350 North Main St., in Mountain Home. Cremation was under the direction of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel.
