Rodney John Rodrigues, 13, of Colusa, CA, passed away on June 23, 2013. He was born May 31, 2000 in Colusa, CA.
Rodney was a joy to his family and will be dearly missed. Even though he never went to college, Rodney was a teacher. He helped educate many medical students and residents during various hospital stays and doctor’s appointments. His years in the Colusa school system helped teach fellow schoolmates tolerance and acceptance. Above all, he taught his family how to come together and celebrate the little things. He taught them to seize any moment and make it special because tomorrow is unknown. He enjoyed classical music, watching movies with his sister and relaxing in the hot tub.
Survivors include his Loving Parents Manual and Lori Rodrigues and sister Hope Rodrigues of Colusa; Grandparents Lee & Marian Boyes of Colusa, John and Mary Jane Rodrigues of Colusa, Kendi Sellers of Gainesville, Georgia and a large extended family.
A Memorial Service will be held at the Trinity United Methodist Church at 11:00 a.m on Saturday, June 29, 2013.
Contributions may be made in Rodney’s name to Trinity United Methodist Church of Colusa, Shriner’s Hospital for Children, or Ronald McDonald House Charities.
