Rodney Carl Bernklau
Born September 21, 1938 in Oregon City, Oregon to Walter and Gertrude Bernklau, Rodney was the eldest of four children. He grew up on the family "Pharm" on Elisha Road in the Macksburg area.
Rodney graduated from Canby High School in 1956, then earned his BA degree in Business Administration from the University of California, Berkeley.
His career included working as a business sales representative for IBM in California and Hawaii, followed by production work at a TV studio in California. Rodney returned to Oregon in 1972 and worked as a Media Center Assistant at Portland Community College for 30 years before retiring.
Rodney acquired the family Pharm after his parents passed away and made his home there for many years. He had a lifelong love of music, expressed through his piano playing. He was a faithful member of Macksburg Lutheran Church for many years. Rodney is survived by his three siblings, Carol Carter, Jim Bernklau, and Dave Bernklau.
