Rodney was born on March 31, 1953, to Manuel and Lola Mae (Klase) Muth in Scottsbluff, NE. He grew up in Scotts Bluff County, where he received his education, graduating from Scottsbluff High School in 1971. He worked many years at the sugar factory’s various locations. He was also a farmer on the family farm in McGrew, NE, before becoming disabled in 2010.

Rodney was an avid whistler and loved to whistle hymns for church. He had a passion for old cars and loved fixing them up. He enjoyed gardening and going to the farmers’ market with his produce; he definitely had a green thumb. He loved to hunt and fish and was active in 4-H and the Saddle Club. He enjoyed playing cards; but most of all, he loved spending time with his 6 kids, 4 grandkids and family.

Rodney was baptized as a child and again as an adult. His love for the Lord was evident as he took his kids to church regularly on Sundays. He had a huge heart, would do anything for anyone, and he will be greatly missed by everyone that loved him.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his son Beau Muth; brother Tom Muth; brother-in-law Scott Ekberg; great-grandchild Sam Krohn; nephew Jim Muth and niece Jessica Dunn.

He is survived by daughters Melissa (Randy) Conn of Gering, Kandace (Drew) Vogt of Derby, KS, Molly Muth of Las Vegas, NV, Karlee Muth of Las Vegas, NV; son Jeffery Muth of Scottsbluff; grandchildren Tessa (Brett) Krohn of Gillette, WY, Morgan Conn of Gering, Garrett W. Conn of Scottsbluff, Lacey Baney of Derby, KS; great-grandchild Korbyn Krohn of Gillette, WY; sisters Jeni Ekberg of Gering, Nancy (Steve) Landrum of Platteville, CO, Andee (Doug) Dunn of Mitchell, NE; as well as several nieces and nephews.
