Dr. Randy Rodman

Date of Death

July 13, 2021

With shocking abruptness on the evening of Tuesday, July 13, 2021, a sudden heart attack took Randy Rodman from his world, his friends, and his family.

As a child, Randy discovered a talent for creativity and a love of intricate detail. With these to motivate him and a degree from USC Dental School, he turned these into a long career as a dentist, painter, pianist, teacher, and sculptor. He was a gentle soul who shared his talents in helping to raise five children. In his marriage to Carol Akin, Randy found new friends and activities, and shared his sense of adventure with her and traveled frequently to Maui, Mexico, and Chloride, Az.

Randy, a longtime member of the Pismo Beach Church of First Presbyterian, is lovingly remembered by Carol, his wife of a short 7 years, his son Lachlan, younger brother Jeff, and a family rich in cousins, nieces, nephews, stepchildren, grandchildren, loyal patients, neighbors, and many dance friends.

Celebration of life will be Oct 9, 1:00pm at the First Presbyterian Church of SB 21 E. Constance Ave. Santa Barbara, CA 93105

If desired, donations in memory of Randy can be made to the Chloride Baptist Church, established in 1860.

It can be sent to:
c/o Pastor Ralph Wells
P.O. Box 65
Chloride, Az. 86431
