Aug. 6, 1971 — June 18, 2012
Our beloved Egberto "Alex" Rodriguez passed away to be with the Lord on June 18, 2012 at his home in Hayward surrounded by his loved ones.
He was born in Crinto, Nicaragua and at the age of 16 he came to the United States to begin a new life for himself and family.
In 1992 he met Irma, who then became the love of his life. They decided to tie the knot on his birthday in 1994.
Four years later they had their first daughter, Alejandra and six years later Angeli came along. They were the joy of his life.
Alex was greatly recognized by many for his love of soccer.
He played, reffed and coached for many years until his passing.
On September 11, 2010 after being diagnosed he accepted the lord as his personal savior and continued to have faith in God.
Alex will be greatly missed. He was a loving father, caring husband, and mentor to many youth in the community.
He is survived by his dad Alejandro Rodriguez, his mom Maria Dolores Soto, sister Kathy Brown, and many
nieces and nephews, his wife of 17 years Irma Rodriguez and two beautiful daughters Alejandra Marie Rodriguez and Angeli Jessenia Rodriguez.
