Rod Kilvert Obituary – Death, Rod Kilvert Has Passed Away

Rod Kilvert Death, Obituary – It is with great sadness that we must inform you that the Lib Dem light and natural force that was Rod Kilvert has passed away. He will be greatly missed. Rod’s diagnosis with cancer earlier in 2022 did not prevent him from campaigning for the Liberal Democrats, knocking on doors, and keeping an intense interest in what was going on in the community. In addition to serving as a parish councillor in the village of Potterspury, where he was born and raised, Rod Kilvert was the Liberal Democrat Election Agent for South Northants. Stewart Tolley, a fellow Liberal Democrat campaigner in the Deanshanger Ward, stated that “Rod touched the lives of a lot of individuals.”

“I have never seen someone with such a large heart who also had such a strong devotion. They had more energy than the youngest of us when it came to campaigning, and they were the most dedicated person I have ever met.” According to Hazel Hewison, a local councillor for the Liberal Democrats, “He was a tremendous campaigner and a legend.” “I thought of Rod as the fount of information,” said Kate Nash, a local councillor for the Liberal Democrats. “He was always happy to pick up the phone and give his knowledge,” she continued, “and he was always pleased to be called and brain picked.” Rod always seemed to have numerous missions going at any same time,

and he was particularly observant of local politics, always ready to expose improper or sloppy behavior whenever he encountered it. A post was made on Facebook by the Potterspury Parish Council, which read as follows: “Rod Kilvert served Potterspury as a much respected Parish Councillor for many years and was instrumental in numerous major improvement projects for the village, including the Skatepark and MUGA, the Outdoor Gym, and refurbishing Blackwell End and Meadow View Play Areas.”
