James Rhodes

Mr. James Howard Rhodes, age 73, of Concord, passed away Friday, November 20, 2020 at Atrium Health Cabarrus. Howard was born September 11, 1947 in Cabarrus county, a son of the late John M. and Edna Maxwell Rhodes. Howard, as he was known to many, along with “Snowball”, “Pee Wee” and “Whitey”, was a 1966 graduate of Concord High School and was the Co-captain of the football team in 1965. He was a true “Concord Spider”, who supported the team over many years. He was also a middle school football coach and was involved in coaching at the Boys and Girls Club, as well as the Hartsell Athletic program. He touched the lives of a lot of children during this time. After retiring from Sears, he worked for the Cabarrus county schools as a bus driver. Howard was truly a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend who will be dearly missed beyond measure. He was an all-around good guy, who lived life to the fullest. Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of almost 50 years, Linda Moore Rhodes; daughter, Beth Rhodes Long of Concord; son, Jay Rhodes of Concord; grandchildren, Hunter and Josh Long, Joey and Ashton Rhodes and Mara Shuemake; 4 great-grandchildren; sisters, Dot Rhodes of Charlotte and Teresa Rhodes of Concord; his faithful canine, Romeo; and a host of loving relatives and friends. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Piedmont Animal Rescue, 225 E Waterlynn Road, Mooresville, NC 28117 or to the Boys and Girls Club of Cabarrus County, 247 Spring St NW, Concord, NC 28025. A service to celebrate the life of Howard “Snowball” Rhodes will be held at a later date and will be announced by Wilkinson Funeral Home. Continue to keep his family in your prayers during this difficult time.
