Rodney was born December 5, 1969, in Stanly County, North Carolina; and was the son of Carolyn Peoples and Joseph Kirk. He was fond-loving and quite a comedian.

He attended Church of the Living God, Badin, North Carolina and his childhood home church, Shiloh Baptist Church, New London, North Carolina. Rodney enjoyed fishing, telling jokes, and spending time with his family, and especially his sons. He had and passion for fashion and loved to dress.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Darren Peoples; and maternal grandmother, Angeline Peoples.

Loving and fond memories will forever live in the hearts of his sons: Christian Shaw and Jashon Shaw; sisters: Antoinette Peoples and Yolanda Peoples; brother, Larry Stanback; nieces: Jasmine Goode and Chasity (Derrick) Patterson; nephew, Jermaine Goode; aunts and uncles: Lonnie (Deborah) Peoples, Steve (Crystal) Peoples, Barbara P.
