Crossed the Bar

Sitrep 1, Funeral Arrangements,

It is with so much sadness I report that PO(D) Michael Reginald Roddis RFA (Retd) Crossed the Bar on1st July 2018 aged 66 after a battle with cancer. Michael was not a member of our association so the details I have are very sketchy indeed (Facebook).

Michael’s funeral will take place on Friday 20th July 2018 at Poole Crematorium (HERE for their website and HERE for a map). Old shipmates are most welcome to attend and will be invited to join the family afterwards for refreshments.


Family flowers only please but donations, if desired, should be made to RNLI Poole  (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)and or the Zigzag unit Bournemouth (I cannot find their website)

The arrangements for the funeral are being made by Nicholas O’Hara, Funeral Directors Ferndown (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)

I will, of course, sitrep this page as the situation if anymore details emerge.

On hehalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to Sue, his widow, children Lisa and Jamie, and grandchildren Jacob, Tilly and Lucia,

If you have any remembrances of Michael please email it to me at captain.pat@rfaa.uk and I will post them on this page. I am also looking for photographs of Michael for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, If you have one please email it to me.

Michael Roddis
