George G. Rodriguez Sr. was the life of the party, who never met a stranger. He was a Dallas Cowboy fan. He loved to dance and sing. He loved to hear and play music on his record player, and even 8-track. He loved all kinds of music. He was a very spiritual and godly man very involved with many church activities especially with ACTS Brothers. He was always willing to help anyone in need and you could always count on him. He loved spending time with family and friends, even if it was a BBQ cookout. He adored and cherished his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, brothers and sister aunts and uncles, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, church family, friends, and co-workers. We would like to see this as our dad receiving a call, a sort of an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which he will not be returning. This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus, a reunion with family and friends he has not seen in a long time. He will be deeply missed by all and never forgotten.
