Rodney Chase was born on March 2, 1969 in Boston, MA to the late Courtland Chase and Sheila (Hardy) Pettyjohn. God called Rodney home to his heavenly rest on April 2, 2020.
Rodney and his mother moved to Folkston, GA when he was at the tender age of three. He was educated in the Charlton County school system. Rodney joined the United States Navy where he proudly served his country for eight years.
After serving his country, he made his residence in Long Island, NY for a period of time. Rodney then moved to Chester, PA where he worked at the Franklin Mint in Middletown, PA and at Xerox as a technician.
Rodney eventually left the City of Chester and moved to Wilmington, DE where he started a new career at Liberty Electric Company. Rodney provided Liberty with 19 years of exemplary service as a Control Operator. Because Rodney was known for his dedication to hard work and for his strength of character, Liberty Electric paid homage to his memory by naming the Control Room in his honor.
Besides being a hard worker, Rodney loved life and was an avid pool player. To know Rodney ‘Chase’ as he was affectionately known, was to love Rodney.
Rodney leaves to cherish his memory his mother, Sheila Pettyjohn, of Folkston; his sisters, Cheryl Chase (Anton) Johnson, of Smyrna, DE and April Pettyjohn of Huntsville, AL; three daughters, Seirra Chase, of N. Charleston, SC, Shadeique Chase, of Long Island, NY, and Jalisa Chase of Chester, PA; two granddaughters; two aunts; two uncles; and a host of nieces and nephews, and many friends and acquaintances.
