Halford & Mary Rhodes
The Rhodes Family has been devotedly improving quality of life for the hearing impaired since 1953. Halford Rhodes began as a door-to-door salesman for hearing instruments in 1953. In 1954 he was doing house calls in Tennessee when a patient’s daughter caught his eye. Eight days later Mary Starbuck became Mary Rhodes, thus began her long career of helping the hearing impaired. We dearly love and miss the first generation of the Rhodes Hearing family.
