On behalf of Phi Alpha Delta, it is with heavy heart that we share the news of our Brother Rodney Sparrow’s untimely passing in late April of this year.
His presence at Phi Alpha Delta events brought true fraternalism and joy to his brothers and sisters. Rodney was a lifelong resident of Brooklyn, NY and was an active member and officer of the Brooklyn Alumni Chapter. He has been a beloved member of the P.A.D. family since 1998.
Rodney spearheaded the “Porterhouse Chapter” which became a beloved Phi Alpha Delta tradition at Conventions and will continue in his memory.
I will remember him best by his humble and warm personality. His smile lit up any room he was in.
We will be honoring his lifetime involvement in Phi Alpha Delta during Convention this summer - an event he held dear and attended for 20 years.
Rodney will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and his fraternity.
Phi Alpha Delta is the world’s preeminent law fraternity because of our dedication to service: service to the student, the school, the profession, and the community.
It is through devotion to the ideals of Integrity, Compassion, Courage, Professionalism, Service, Diversity, and Innovation that we better both our profession and our community. Through accepting our differences we become not just a law fraternity, but a family.
