Tommy G. Rodriguez
May 5, 2021
Tommy and I were next door neighbors for more than thirty-three years. Tommy and Delores were the perfect neighbors, kind generous and always willing to help. Tommy was industrious, building an addition to his house all by himself. His GMC pickup was his pride and joy. He was an ardent supporter and fan of the SF Giants and 49ers. Tommy was an all around good man, I will miss him greatly.
My condolences to his family.
