WOOSTER — Wooster Community Hospital Manager of Marketing and Public Relations David Rhoad has never let himself forget what it’s like to be a kid.
And the 44-year-old father of two is quite thankful for that.
Be it talking about the Cleveland Indians, Cincinnati Reds, or his work with student ministries at the Wooster Grace Brethren Church, Rhoad’s enthusiasm and zest for life often rubs off on those around him.
“He’s a good man,” said friend and former employer Mike Reardon, president of United Titanium. “He’s got all the right values, a good character and a good parent. He worked for us for 10 years doing inside sales and human resources work, and he was hard working, enthusiastic. He’s just so outgoing that everybody’s attracted to him.”
An avid baseball fan of all levels, including the games his sons Andrew (16) and Michael (13) play at Wooster High and Edgewood Middle Schools, Rhoad said sports play a key role in his family.
“Sports in a big deal for our family,” said Rhoad, a Cincinnati native and 1981 Indian Hill High School graduate. “Both my kids play baseball, and also both played Upward Basketball at the Grace Brethren Church where we attend. And I’ve gotten involved in that program doing announcing. My kids don’t play anymore — actually my oldest son coaches now, but I’m still announcing.”
