Rodney Lee Camren, age 47 of Lawrenceville, Georgia, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, June 28, 2016 at his home. Rodney is survived by his loving partner of 10 years Michael A. Rumph. Rodney was born in Coffeyville, Kansas. After graduating from Seneca High School in 1987, he enlisted in the United States Army where he became a Paratrooper in Fort Bragg, North Carolina (35th Signal Brigade). He then served in the Gulf War, with an MOS Brigade Budget and Supply S-4. Upon receiving an honorable discharge from the Army, Rodney attended Central Piedmont Community College and then Queens University of Charlotte where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Rodney then entered the world of real estate, excelling in marketing himself, selling homes as well as teaching classes in his Keller Williams Midtown office. Rodney was a vibrant individual who lit up every room. He never met a stranger and always fought for the underdog. His attitude for always seeing the bright side of things was contagious, and his distinctive laugh was infectious; always bringing a smile to anyone around. He sought every opportunity do better in life, making his home, family, community and work environment better for all. He truly lived his life by the philosophy of, “I have one life to live and I will live it to the fullest, in a positive, loving and unapologetic way.” Rodney is also survived by his parents, C.A. and Merrilyn Terry of Carthage, MO; his siblings, Melissa George of Joplin, MO; Misty Dalton and her husband Billy of Reeds, MO; Matt Terry and his wife Heather of Carl Junction, MO; Ryan Terry and his companion Nicole of Seneca, MO; as well as 6 nieces, 4 nephews, and 1 great-nephew.
