On Monday, April 23, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. our beloved father, Jose M. “Chore” Rodriguez was called into Heaven to be in the presence of the Lord. Mr. Jose M. Rodriguez was born in Islitas, Texas but lived most of his life in Laredo, Texas. He was well liked, respected and known in his community. He started working in the fields then became a successful carpenter. Mr. Rodriguez built himself up to become a small business owner. He owned J.M. Rodriguez Electric Service, Rodriguez Meat Market and Cheyenne Electric Service. He was a hard worker, great provider and was always there to lend a hand. Mr. Rodriguez taught all his sons, brothers and brother-in-laws the electrician trade.
