My Brother Roel was a type of person you would want at your party or bbq get-together. He was easy to talk to, wonderful listener, great sense of humor, and overall just gave off positive vibes. I don't have too many people that would text or call me, just to see how I was doing; my brother did that often and I will miss that dearly. He was like a father figure in my life and helped me with so many things. He was a very talented individual. He basically was our family's car mechanic, baseball coach, fisherman, mentor, carpenter, cook, and just a positive role model for all of us growing up. The best quality he had however, was the unconditional love he had for his children. This man would do anything for his kids to keep them happy. I hope to become half the father he was. It is still unreal that he is gone, but what keeps me sane is the fact that he is up above with our Mom and Dad, looking down on us to protect and guide us. Till we meet again Brother, I love and miss you so much.

I’ve known the Rodriguez family for about 11 years now. Roel was a great man and father I was just a teenager when I met him and he never treated me any different than he did his kids. I’m going to miss him and the all stories he’d tell me we had some good laughs.

May he Rest In Peace.

I have known Goris & her family for almost 25 yrs. I remember when Goris told me she had a boyfriend named, Roel. It wasn't long after I had the pleasure of meeting him. Wonderful person! May Roel rest in peace & May God Bless Goris, the kids & baby Aubrey. 🙏💞🙏
