Rodney Winston CLEVELAND
Rodney Winston Cleveland, a father, husband, beloved family man, passionate musician, and accomplished professional, unfortunately, and unexpectedly passed away on May 12th, 2023, in Sherwood Park, Canada. He was born on February 4th, 1970, in Toronto, Canada, and leaves behind a legacy of love, strength, and cherished memories.
Rodney’s devotion to his family was unmatched. He was a dedicated and loving father to his three daughters; Megan, Kaylee and Mya whose lives were enriched by his unwavering support and guidance. He always prioritized his children and his wife Jeanette, selflessly putting their needs before his own. Rodney’s nurturing spirit and warm presence created a home filled with love, laughter and happiness.
Music resonated deep within Rodney’s soul, and he shared his passion with the world through his singing and drumming. Whether it was a family gathering or a spontaneous jam session with friends, Rodney’s rhythmic talents illuminated the room and brought joy to those around him. His love for music was infectious and inspired others to embrace their own creative passions.
Rodney found solace in nature, particularly through camping adventures with his beloved family. Exploring the great outdoors, sitting by a crackling campfire, and immersing himself in the tranquility of nature brought him immense happiness. His enthusiasm for camping created countless cherished memories and strengthened the bonds between his family and friends.
When he wasn’t camping or making music, Rodney found exhilaration on the open road, riding his motorcycle with his friends. The wind in his hair, the freedom of the journey, and the comradery shared with fellow riders brought him a sense of liberation and adventure. His passion for motorcycling allowed him to embrace life’s thrills and connect with kindred spirits.
Rodney’s achievements spanned various areas of his life. He graduated from high school in Stanley, New Brunswick, in June of 1988, marking the beginning of a journey that would see him touch many lives. He proudly served in the military, demonstrating his commitment to his country and the values he held dear. Professionally, Rodney excelled as a Heat Treatment Technician, leaving a lasting impact in his field and earning the respect of his colleagues.
Rodney Winston Cleveland’s memory will forever be cherished by his three daughters, Megan, Kaylee and Mya, his wife Jeanette, his 2 sisters, Karen and Shelley, his extended family, and friends. His legacy of love, passion, and dedication to family will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to have known him.

How do you write something when you grieve the loss of a brother? I could write a book. He loved big, he laughed big. His girls were his everything. He constantly strived to be the best dad ever. He lived even bigger. Nothing really got him worked up… he was the calm for any storm I experienced when I would talk with him. I will miss our FaceTime calls and phone calls. Your forever in my heart and I’m kind of jealous that you are back with mom and dad. I know you will all wait patiently up there for me when God’s ready to take me home. I love you brother ox remember that it’s always I Love You More ❤️😘💔
Love your sister Shelley
Lost for words Karen! Our condolences! I am here for you Karen! Hugs to all. 🤗💕
