John Paredez Rodriguez, or "Grandpa" as he was known by many, was a shy and reserved man who impacted everyone he met through an open heart and warm demeanor. His sudden and unexpected passing has been a complete tragedy for our family and friends. He was a man who lost the love of his life, Caroline Angelina Rodriguez, 19 years ago. There was not a day that went by that he never thought about her. In fact, the day before he died, he wrote a song for her. He knew he was going to see her soon and now they can live happily ever after. This GoFundMe page will be used for the memorial and funeral costs. We would like to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and donations. ￼ UPDATE: Funeral arrangements have been made and we are eternally grateful for all of the love, support and donations received this far! Please keep our family in your prayers during this very difficult time.
