  Mr. COMER. Madam Speaker, I rise today to celebrate the life and 
legacy of Rodney Burress who passed away on April 29, 2019 at the age 
of 58 after decades of service to Taylor County.

  Rodney faithfully served his community in multiple capacities 
throughout his life. He maintained local roadways during his time with 
the Road Department, protected the community as the County Jailer, and 
impacted many during his time as Taylor County Circuit Clerk. In his 
final years of public service, he was an especially strong supporter of 
the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks' Trust for Life which promotes organ 
donor awareness. When he was not serving his community, Rodney enjoyed 
spending time farming with his father, brother, and sons.
  Those in Taylor County remember Rodney for his servant's heart and 
kind spirit. His membership in the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels 
is a testament to these characteristics. He lived his life in faith and 
was a brilliant light in the community who practiced compassionate 
conservatism.
  I join Rodney's family and friends, as well as all those he impacted, 
in celebrating his life of devoted service to the 1st District of 
Kentucky. May God continue to bless the members of his family through 
whom his legacy lives on.
