Rodrigo passed away peacefully at home on September 23, 2021, at the age of 82. He was known as “Papa” to family and friends, and lovingly called “Rudy” by his wife, Carmen. A smile always lit up Papa’s face when his favourite people were around. He enjoyed gathering with his children and grandchildren on special occasions and every other time he could see them. He loved travelling to different places and seeing new sights; some of his happiest memories are of his trips with Carmen throughout Europe and the Holy Land. Papa was at his best discovering new places to eat and feasting on his classic favourite dishes. He was predeceased by his wife of 61 years, Carmen. Rudy will be missed by his children, Maria Corazon (Laurence), Jun (Socky), Baby, and Raymond (Christine); and his grandchildren, Deborah, Jeremy, Hannah, and Joseph.
Papa will make one last trip to San Jose, California, to rest eternally with his loving wife.
