Services for Chief Rodney Seals - RCFD

Chief Rodney Seals' funeral arrangements
Wednesday, April 5th, 1500hrs.

Cavalry Lutheran Church 5311 Sheridan Lake Rd. Rapid City SD
Vehicle line up/placement by 1430hrs.

For all responder vehicles, we ask that you can have your lights on after service as the family is escorted from the facility.
All uniformed and non-uniformed, current or retired, responders will be sat together for service if you wish to do so, then be part of the lineup when Chief Seals' family is escorted back to their transportation.

If you are interested in showing respect but not being at the service there is parking available along Sheridan Lake Road at Sioux Park and Storybook Island. Both of these have street visibility and ample room for apparatus.

A celebration of life will start directly after the service at the VFW located at 420 Main St. Please join us for sharing our experiences with Rodney.
Dress for firefighters will be the best uniform that you have. Anyone with a badge should use a shroud. A limited number of shrouds will be available at the service. Ties are recommended for both Class A and Class B uniforms. We ask that no ball caps or sunglasses be worn during the service.


Thank you
