Refugio P. Rodriguez, Jr., lost his battle with cancer on 10 September 2020. He was a resident of Corpus Christi since 2004. Jay was a former resident of Poteet, Robstown, Laredo and Arlington, where his work took him. Jay was a Water Source Specialist. He was a faithful member of St. Peter Prince – The Apostle Church in Calallen where he was a Third-Degree Knight of Columbus. Jay was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend who will be missed by all who knew him.
Preceding him in death are his parents: Refugio P. Rodriguez, Sr. and Tomasa Yanez Rodriguez.
Survivors include his beloved wife, Gracie M. Rodriguez of Corpus Christi; daughters, Stella Rodriguez Arciniega (David) of Corpus Christi and Sara Martinez- Williams (Bryan) of Corpus Christi; granddaughter, Sophia Grace Arciniega; brother, Reynaldo Rodriguez (Christina) of San Antonio; sisters, Rosa R. Uribe of Poteet, Rachel Rodriguez of San Antonio, Rebecca Silvas of Schertz and Rita Davis (Trevor) of San Antonio; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Jay gave us strength in time of trouble, wisdom in time of uncertainty and sharing in time of happiness; he will always be in our hearts. Love is not an easy feeling to put into words, nor is loyalty, trust or joy, but he was all of these; he loved his family completely and lived life intensively. The other two loves of his life were golf and the Dallas Cowboys. Jay’s love was unselfish and involved sacrifice, respect, support and giving. He completed his purpose in life and our Lord decided it was time for him to go home. You will live in our hearts, until we meet again. Love all of your family.
Services were on Saturday, September 12, at the Resthaven Funeral Home Chapel in Sinton.
