I met Senator Rhoades for the first time at an ASALV open forum at Lehigh Valley Hospital last Sunday.
Mr. Rhoades seemed like a "stand-up"
guy and a very dedicated State Senator. My deepest sympathies to his friends and family on his untimely passing.

My deepest sympathies to his family and multitude of friends. I first met Senator Rhoades as a student at Pottsville Area High school and I am sure it was his first year of teaching. He was convinced all of his students would pass! and I believe it was PHYSICS he was teaching that year. Not easy. I had great respect for him then and now. I continued to email him through the years regarding all of his initiatives which impacted the education of our kids in PA. His family should be very proud. My best wishes for the recovery of his wife also. It is a sad day.
