In memory of
Jay Rhoades, 40, of Spencerport, N.Y., formerly of Cecil Township, died Tuesday, October 11, 2016, in Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, N.Y. He was born April 17, 1976, in Kingston, a son of Jay Rhoades and Patricia Stahovic. Mr. Rhoades attended school in Canon-McMillan School District. He enjoyed cooking and spending time with friends, both in New York and Pennsylvania. Even though he was diagnosed with cancer, he lived his life every day with hope, kindness and optimism. It is fitting that Kool and the Gang's "Celebration" was playing in the background when he passed. Cancer may have ravaged his body, but it never dampened his spirit. Surviving, in addition to his parents, are a brother, Cody Rhoades; a niece, Serafine; his loving stepfather, Ryan Joyce; grandparents Patrick Joyce and Nancy Brooks; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins in the Joyce family; three uncles, Ray Stahovic (Peg), Ralph Stahovic and Shane Rhoades (Margie); and two aunts, Kelley Baron and Cathy Stahovic. Deceased are grandparents Raymond and Donna Gazzo Stahovic. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, October 22, in Faith Chapel Community Church, 9 Lawrence Street, Lawrence, PA 15055, with Pastor James O'Brien officiating.
