Rodney Lynn Emory
September 16, 1955 – January 10, 2021
Rodney Lynn Emory, 65, was born to Harley and Elsie Emory of Pueblo, Colorado on September 16, 1955, the sixth child of seven and the second son. He passed from this life on January 10 at Penrose-St. Francis Health Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado after a brief illness. Rod learned his lifelong trade as a sheet metal journeyman working from a young age in his father’s business, Emory Sheet Metal Works. He graduated from South High School, class of 1974. He joined his brother in California working in the heating and air conditioning trade for several years before returning to Pueblo where he continued his trade. He met and married Leslie Chavez of Pueblo, the mother of his proudest accomplishment and delight, Lauren Elizabeth. Rod was a lifelong Bronco fan and one who enjoyed attending Colorado Rockies games with his family. He followed conservative politics in recent years and spent many hours watching various pundants and preachers on YouTube. One of Rod’s greatest joys in life was spending time with his grandson, Toby. Rod is preceded in death by his grandparents, his parents and an infant sister, Harlene, and a brother-in-law. He is survived by his daughter Lauren Elizabeth Emory (Paul Bousquet); his grandson Tobias Jacob Billings-Emory; six siblings: Beverly (Harold-deceased) Heaston of Pueblo; H. Bud (Sharon) Emory of Aptos, CA; Sheryl (Bobby) Beard of Cincinnati, OH; Carolyn (James) Majeske of Meridian, ID; Joy (Ronald) Hawkins of Fort Wayne, IN; Terry (Thomas) Bremer of Pueblo West. Rod is also survived by numerous nephews, nieces and cousins across the country. He will be missed. A memorial service will be held at Pueblo Christian Center on Thursday, January 14, at 10 AM. Rod will be interned at Imperial Memorial Gardens in a private service.

I went to high school with Rod and spent a lot of time with him. We had a group of friends that stayed together for years. We spent a lot of time driving around in his white Ford galaxy and at the home on Goodnight. My thoughts are with Rods family.
