In Memory of Roderick Skyes

Roderick Sykes

February 20, 1946 – April 5, 2021

Roderick Sykes, my Husband, friend and life partner of over 41 years passed away April 5, 2021. After a five year struggle with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Roderick is now at peace.

Roderick was an Artist, Visionary, Arts Advocate, Motivational speaker and an inspiration. He continuously encouraged all of us to live life creatively.

There are no words to express how much Roderick will be missed by our community, family and friends. The spirit of his life will live on in the work he has inspired in others and in the work at St. Elmo Village that he created.

For all who have called, sent cards and given your love and support, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

“Do What You Love – Love What You Do”
Roderick Sykes

Peace and Light, Jacqueline Alexander-Sykes
