Rodney Low

June 4, 1937 — February 5, 2024

Logan, Utah

Beloved husband, father, and grandfather Rodney Clinton Low, 86, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on February 5, 2024, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Rod was born on June 4, 1937, in Logan, Utah to Clinton and Roma Low. He was raised in Smithfield, Utah, where he made lifelong friends and memories. He graduated from North Cache High School in 1955, then proudly served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Western States Missions from 1957 to 1959. He later graduated from Utah State University in 1969 with a bachelor’s degree in food science.

On September 28, 1962, Rod was married and sealed to the love of his life, Peggy Rhodes, in the Logan Utah Temple. They had four beautiful children: Christopher, Michael, Jennifer, and Wendy. Rod led his family with faith and love; he was a wonderful father.

For 15 years, Rod worked as a quality control manager for Kraft Foods, taking his family to California, Illinois, and then Idaho. Rod and Peggy eventually returned to Cache Valley, where they opened The Oak Tree, a hardwood furniture store, on Main Street in Downtown Logan. A renowned craftsman, he was known to always offer a helping hand or a word of advice to any who asked. Later, he worked at Al’s Sporting Goods as a gun salesman. He loved utilizing his knowledge of firearms and chatting with customers, who, without a doubt, became a fast friend.

Rod loved to talk and could often be found in his favorite armchair, sharing stories and jokes, but most of all, he loved to help people. He always had a listening ear and a kind word for those around him.

Rod dedicated his life to the gospel of Jesus Christ. He served in various callings, including Bishop of the 40th Ward in Pocatello, Idaho. Later in his life, he and Peggy served as Guest Service Missionaries at Temple Square and the Conference Center. 

He led a life of service and was an amazing example to his family and friends. He was a vivacious and active grandfather; each of his grandchildren always knew how much he loved them. Rod is survived by his wife, Peggy, and children, Christopher (Saori), Michael (Lisa), and Wendy (Russell), his younger brother, Randall (Suzette), eleven grandchildren, and four and a half great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, sister Marilyn, brother Ted, and daughter Jennifer.
