Rodney Lawrence Morinville was born on September 13, 1957, in Thief River Falls, Minnesota to parents Lawrence and Yvonne (Mercil) Morinville. He grew up near Brooks and graduated from Oklee High School.

Following high school, Rod went to work in the oil fields in Wyoming, North Dakota and Colorado. He eventually moved back to the home farm near Brooks where he farmed for many years. During this time, he also started NYB, Inc., a pickup sprayer manufacturing business, with his brother, Perry. Later, he went back and forth from Texas to Minnesota. While in Minnesota, he worked at Minnesota Dehydrated Vegetables in Fosston and retired in Erskine.

Rod liked to ride motorcycles, golf and read. He had the gift of gab and enjoyed sitting around with family and friends shooting the breeze. He always made others laugh and feel comfortable and welcome in the conversation.
