Rodney was born on June 3, 1967 in Stigler, Oklahoma to Melton Eugene and Sue Ellen (Barnes) Barbee. He attended school in Oklahoma. Rodney worked for several years delivering meals with Lawton and Cache Mobile Meals and also for the Center for Creative Living Mobile Meals. He helped in the office at Community Access where he lived. He enjoyed his occasional outings to Braums and Cache Football games. He never met a stranger and his smile was contagious. He liked playing catch with his roommates, often helping with others. He also loved playing Pool. He welcomed everyone and was a big brother to many. Rodney always made sure he matched his socks and shoes with caregivers. He was cherished by those who knew him and will be missed by all.
He is survived by his family; and many special friends who were his family including Blenda J. Perkins and Duffy Daugherty.
He is preceded in death by his girlfriend, Hazel.
