(Age 53)

It is with profound love that we celebrate and mourn the life of Rodney Yapp. Born on October 18, 1958 and called home on June 24, 2012. He was born in Yakima, WA and raised in Spokane, graduating from Central Valley High School. He received his plumbing license in 1984 and never stopped doing what he loved, teaching his boys the trade. He was always helping his fellow neighbor. He had a heart of gold and always lived his life loving his family and God. He is survived by his two sons Jason (Shara) and Jeremy; five grandchildren Paisha, Abigail, Mason, Radley and Hunter; five siblings Butch, Darlene, Ron, Lily, and Rick; and numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by Robin, Cherie and his parents Ray and Lucille. A visitation will be held on Thursday, June 28, 2012 from 4:00 - 8:00 P.M. at Thornhill Valley Chapel, 1400 S. Pines Rd., Spokane Valley, WA. A Celebration of Rodney’s life will be held on Saturday, June 30, 2012 at 11:00 A.M. at Greenacres Baptist Church, 18620 E. Sprague, Ave., Spokane, WA 99016.

He was the world’s best plumber.
