Rodney Ford Call age 88, of Renton, Washington passed away on Sunday, September 20, 2020 incident of age.

Rodney was the second son of seven children born to Lyman and Leah Call in Bountiful, Utah October 29, 1931. He developed the skills for the outdoors and for farming in his childhood. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and served as an MP at Fort Lewis in Washington State. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to the Alberta Canada Mission.

After returning home from his years of service, he attended BYU (graduating from BYU with a BS). He met Mary Lou Schelff while in the Army and on May 20, 1955 the two were married in the Salt Lake City UT Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints temple. At the time of his death they had been married for 65 years. Within these years their family grew to 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.

Rodney worked hard all of his life to provide in many ways for his family and community. He worked at Boeing as an engineer for thirty-five years. He had many talents and used them to serve the youth in coaching and teaching capacities and leadership in the Boy Scout program. His passion was growing flowers and vegetables and could often be found on his tractor preparing for the next planting. He loved the outdoors and prioritized time for hiking, fishing, and hunting. He grew up loving music and would often share his talents on the accordion. Most Sundays one could find him leading the singing in services with his wife playing the organ.

Rodney spent much of his later years travelling and exploring the world with Mary Lou. When not travelling he loved working his farm in Sumner and later in Enumclaw Washington. His produce and flowers were very popular amongst the locals and all new they were welcome to take what they needed and help when they could. He loved to share and teach the art of farming and to appreciate the blessings of the harvest; many lives were impacted by his willingness to share his time and abundance.

Rodney is survived by his wife, Mary Lou Call. Four Children: LuAnn Hunzeker (Don) Twin Falls, Idaho; Renee Bair (Dave) Spanish Fork, Utah; Juleen Call (Don) Wofford Heights, California; R. Stephen Call (Donna) Snohomish, Washington. Grandchildren (13) and Great-Grandchildren (20). He is preceded in death by his parents, one sibling, one granddaughter, and one grandson.

A private family graveside service will be held Friday, September 25, 2020 at the Bountiful Memorial Park Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Humanitarian Aid of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

All the young men in the Renton 2nd and 4th Wards (Renton Highlands, May Creek) knew Rod Call, as did most of the stake. He taught the scouts how to be independent and interdependent at the same time. His dutch oven peach cobbler is legend. I was an observer of a man who loved God, his family and preparing the next generation. He is one of those faithful Elders who is serving on the other side of the veil. My love and blessings to Mary Lou and their family.

My condolences to the Call family. Brother Call, as I knew him, played an important formative influence in my childhood and life as he served as my scout master, priesthood leader and friend. I have reflected many times on our fifty mile adventures into the mountains together. His example shaped my efforts as I too served as a scout master to a number of different troops over the years. His influence has touched the lives of countless people, young and old. I look forward to the day when we can share an embrace on the other side of the veil. I see in my minds eye, my father Garland Green welcoming him home as they go on before us.

We had the privilege to be friends and fellow church members with Rod and Mary Lou. We shared some good times together in their home as well as at church functions. Our hearts go out to Mary Lou and the entire Call family for the loss of this great and good man. If there are gardens in heaven then Heavenly Father has someone to help take care of Them. May you always be remembered with good Thoughts Brother Call and we will miss you.

To The Call Family my condolences
Rodney we had a good run while it lasted. Hunting mid 60"s too late 70's, scouting from the late 60"s to the last of the 90's with one troop or another including the disabled troop. You're cooking in camps, pan cakes that covered the plates. We had fun, now at trails end you have headed home at last. It's been a blessing and an honor.
Your old friend
