HomeObituariesLOUIS RODKIN


It is with profound sadness that the family of Louis Rodkin announces his passing on October 2, 2022, at home, beside his wife, following a 22-year battle with Parkinson’s and Diabetes. Throughout this time Judy, his wife, was his strongest advocate and supporter. Louis is survived by his loving wife, Judy, his daughter, Sandra (Jarod), his sons, Kevin (Shari) and Allan, as well as his granddaughter, Abigail, and grandsons, Ezra and Noah.
Louis was born to parents Mona and Bob, who immigrated to Canada from Ukraine and Poland. He had an older brother, Saul, who died when Louis was four. Louis grew up speaking Yiddish and English, which came in handy later on when he and Judy had something private to discuss in front of their 3 kids. Louis met Judy at a Hillel convention in Minneapolis, and they married in 1968. He was an instructor and then head of department in the Computer Analyst Program at RRC Polytechnic, a program he developed and was very proud of. He was considered to be an excellent administrator and a well-loved lecturer who often had a joke or witticism to share. Table tennis, tennis, bike riding and cross-country skiing were big parts of his life that he shared with friends and family. Anyone who knew Louis knew he also loved math, geography and his model train layout. His taste in music spanned from opera and classical to blue grass and Abba. Louis was a devoted husband and father. He was a kind, intelligent, quiet and thoughtful person with a wonderful laugh and the best one-liners. He will be eternally missed.
The family would also like to thank the pallbearers: Barry Weber, Cal Reich, Michael Stronger, Ran Ukashi, Adam Sheps and Shlomo Arava.
Thank you to all who attended Louis’ graveside service on Oct 6/22, to Rabbi Kliel Rose for guiding the service and to those who offered love and support to us through this difficult time.
