Omar Rodriguez, 16, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, October 10, 2021 in a single car accident. He was born to Angelica Maria Bazaldua and Gregorio Rodriguez Hernandez in Houston, Texas on January 30, 2005. He was a caring, loyal friend. He was never too busy to stop and listen when his friends needed someone to talk to. His smile was genuine and infectious. He would light up a room with his big personality and great smile. He was very protective of his family, especially his sisters and mom.
Omar was respectful of the people around him. He was always quick to hold a door or say, “yes mam” and “yes sir”. He was a hard worker and tried his best to help relieve the burden of chores around the house for his mom.
Omar loved to go mudding. He was an avid hunter and loved to fish. He was always joking around with his family and friends. He had fun horsing around with the family as he practiced his roping skills. He hoped to one day join a roping team and compete at rodeos. He loved fiercely and lived fully. He was a blessing to each and every person who crossed his path.
He is survived by his parents, Angelica Maria Bazaldua and Gregorio Rodriguez Hernandez of Shiro; his brother Luis Alberto Rodriguez; his sisters Nancy Valeria Rodriguez and Elizabeth Rodriguez; Grandmother Candelaria Gaucin Bazaldua and God Parents Guillermo and Rosa Vallecillo.
