OBITUARY

Rodriquez Macel Mayweather

November 10, 1978June 21, 2019

Rodriquez Macel Mayweather was born on November 10, 1978 in Milledgeville, GA to Ernestine Warren and Steven Mayweather. He was raised in Sparta, GA until he moved to Atlanta, GA in 1998. He married Shonita October 10, 2005 and later moved his family to Douglasville, GA where their son, Malchom, was born, who they happily shared in raising together.

Rod married the girl of his dreams, Nita, who he had been in love with since the age of 12. He was a loving and dedicated husband and father; His wife and son were his pride and joy. He was also a wonderful son, always making sure to take care of his mother’s needs. Rod was a loving and generous friend, always giving of himself for anyone in need. He was a mentor to many and supportive of young ones. Rod didn’t offer handshakes, he gave big hugs and genuine smiles.

Rod was baptized December 10, 2011 as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. He attended the Winston congregation and there served as an elder. As a zealous publisher of Jehovah, Rod was often found preaching to all he could, including those he found in the door-t o - door ministry as well as coworkers and others. He was always generous and put the serving of his brothers and sisters in the forefront. He made it a point to train the younger brothers in the congregation and paid special attention to the older ones that needed assistance. His was often the first smile seen and hug given when others came to the Kingdom Hall.

Rod is survived by his wife, Shonita, son, Malchom, mother, Ernestine Warren, father, Steven (A’keti) Mayweather, paternal grandmother, Mattie Mayweather, twelve siblings including brother, Steve (Vivian Ashely) Mayweather, and sister, Lantesha Mayweather, nephews, Treveion Ashley, Tristan Mayweather and Tyler Mayweather, niece, Deryn Makena Davis, and life -long friends, Richard Chapple and Frederick Warren.

The family will be having a memorial service Friday, July 5,2019 at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Sparta, GA at 11:00am. There will not be a reception following the memorial.

Proverbs 17:17 says: "A true friend shows love at all times and is a brother who is born for times of distress" I can honestly say Rod Mayweather was a true friend. He was the type of person that would stick with you through the up's and down's the highs and lows the goods and the bads. I wish I could tell him how much I appreciated his friendship. I hope he knew that. Rod didn't give handshakes. You always got up big warm hug from this loving brother. I can honestly say that I've learned some valuable lessons from the death of Rod. I certainly want to be a more loving and warm individual toward everyone I meet. That's the type of person that Rod was. I know how hard this is going to be for Nita and Malcolm. However I know that Jehovah God will take care of them. My wife Susie and I will be there for them through this very difficult time just as Rod was for my family when we went through some very difficult times. I will never forget that. I really loved this brother and will never forget him.
Some of my favorite memories of Rod are going to the Braves game with his family and going over his house to watch football. But my best memory is the spiritual example that he set. He really loved Jehovah God and his family. He set an example that is worth imitating.
I can't wait to see Rod's face again in God's Kingdom. I can't wait to get another one of those big hugs from him. Going to miss you my brother. See you soon. Rev21:3&4,John5:28&29,Acts24:15

On June 22, 2019, I received the news that I'd lost a great friend, Rodriguez Mayweather. I was stunned; surprised and it was upsetting to know my friend left us so early. I sat down and memories started to flow through my mind. Rod was the type of person who loves his family and would give good advice to the people who'd need advice around him. We discussed a lot of things during our journey. Rod made coming to work easy and stress-free. Rest in peace my brother, we’ll see each other again on the other side. I know my brother will welcome me with open arms and fishing would be the first thing on is agenda, Rod always said, ”how can you be a Jamaican and don't know anything about fishing??”. Each time we spoke, we’d end our conversation with, ”Love bro!” Love you, my brother!!!
P.S Never forget greatness!!

Rod and I worked together at Cox. He was one of the 1st people to welcome me to our team. He had "jokes" from the very first day. And we have had them every working morning since. I was very sad when I woke up to this news on Saturday afternoon, but felt a little better because of the rainbow I saw as I was leaving to come back to Cox that evening. He was a giving friend who looked out for others. He appeared to be very close to his family and we spoke many times of how much he treasured spending video game time with his son. There were new jokes all the time (except when the Falcons lost), so it's easy to remember his smile. My prayers go to the family and friends who also had the pleasure of knowing him. You will be dearly missed my brother. Time to make jokes on the other side. Peace be unto you. Forever.

Sincerely,

Vee

I first met Rod when he came to our group at Cox Communications . We worked together 2 days a week till I retired in 2017. He was my filter , He would read my emails before I sent them out, usually telling me you can't say that. I looked forward to seeing Rod and working with him those days because he was such a great guy to work with. We would talk every month or so after I retired just to keep me up to date with what he was doing at Cox.
He loved his family , especially Malcom his son . He was an honorable man , a loving husband and father and a true friend.
I will miss our conversations and friendship.
Rest in Peace my friend.

It's tough to try to find any words when you describe a guy who can be represented by so many! Rod, was an amazing Father, who was honored to be one. He spoke of his son Malcolm often and we even discussed his DOJO school rating a few times a week. He admired his son and was very proud of who he was becoming and I know that his influence over his life this far will be instrumental in the young man he is and becoming. Rod, was a Husband, who spoke of his wife as the jewel he saw her to be. He spoke on how he enjoyed the trips to celebrate their anniversaries and how he know he was totally out of his league being with such an amazing woman but he was happy she chose him. Rod was a reliable friend, I had the pleasure of working with him and he was always jovial! We being Middle Georgia raised had a lot in common and enjoyed using Southern Colloquialism to stress out our co-workers. I literally could count on Rod being a human being he was straight forward and clear! When he spoke you understood what he meant the first time and that's a rarity today. I will miss him tremendously! Rest Well and Easy my friend.

I have no words to express the sorrow in my heart to hear of my good friend being recruited to the next level before "I" was ready. Condolences to the family. I always tell folks, you can be a tech OR you can be a super tech. It's alright to just be a tech ...Rod was a super tech.

Rod was a good friend. Someone said he had an opinion on just about everything, that is so true. We talked religion, politics, and other topics, but our best conversation (debates) were about sports! He was a true Lakers fan and the ONLY REAL FALCONS fan I have ever met! That's what I use to tell him. We both loved fishing and had planed to go someday. I will morn the loss of my good friend but knowing Rod he would not want us to be sad at all. His destination was Heaven. We will miss you Rodamay. May God grant your family peace and comfort during this time.

Rod made my high school years more bearable. He was a wonderful young man back then and I have all the confidence in the world that he only got better with age. I send my deepest condolences to everyone who knew and loved him.

My deepest condolences to Rod's family. He will be missed.

I met Rod several years ago at Cox Communications, I remembered when he came on board and starting working in the NOC. From the very first meeting , you felt a genuine spirit. You knew this man was kind, warm and a down to earth person. I like to say a "gem" because it's not too often you meet someone and know his heart was good.
When we first met, I remember saying, your last name is "Mayweather"...that's awesome because Mayweather is my favorite boxer. I then said, "you don't mind if I call you Mayweather". He laughed and said, no. From that day on, that's exactly what I called him. "Hey, Mayweather"
We had many laughs, kind words and lots of conversations about life, family and sometimes just about nothing.
Just recently we celebrated the Toronto Raptors winning the NBA Championships. This meant a lot to me as I am from Toronto, Canada.
Mayweather, you will be deeply missed and always remembered.
Your friend,
Anita

It such a small world and I was honored to meet Rod prior to working with him at Cox through our mutual friend Fred Warren. When I got hired and saw it was easy transition when you see a familiar face. Rod was never a stranger and if you talked about most topics he had some knowledge on it. Our favorite topic was talking about the Falcons, he was a real fan and I sure am gonna miss him from the brotherhood. Prayers for your family and strength during this time.
