Hector Flores Rodriguez, 60, entered into rest on September 1, 2012 in Manteca, CA. He was born on June 15, 1952 in San Jose CA. He was a resident of Stockton and Manteca for most of his life.
Mr. Rodriguez is survived by his beloved wife Dawn Rodriguez. He has four loving children, Melissa Rodriguez, Jasmine Kutch (Jeramie), Blake Rodriguez and Tyson Rodriguez. He was blessed with three granddaughters, Jemma, Mercedes and Kiana. In addition, Hector is survived by his three siblings, Hermilo Rodriguez, Homer Rodriguez, and Virgil Rodriguez.
Hector recently retired after 40 years of service from San Joaquin County Parks and Recreation Department. He was a graduate of Franklin High School in Stockton, where he was an incredible athlete. After high school, he went on to receive his degree at Delta College where he also played football. After college, Hector went on to play semi-pro baseball for “Cal-Mex.” He enjoyed golfing and was an avid Oakland Raider fan. When his children were growing up, he was a wonderfully supportive dad, always coaching the in-season sport. When not coaching, Hector was his children’s biggest fan, always giving words of advice and encouragement in tough situations. He was an outgoing man, always willing to help anyone in need. He loved to tell stories over a great meal and his smile always lit up the room.
Above all of his accomplishments, Hector’s greatest joys were his wife, children and grandchildren. They were his pride and joy and he loved each of them unconditionally. Hector will be remembered as a devoted husband, an amazing father, and a very loving grandfather. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
