Obituary of Alejandro Rodriguez

ALEJANDRO RODRIGUEZ JR. EDINBURG- Alejandro Rodriguez Jr., A small town boy turned U.S. Marine, gone so young at 28 years old on May 5, 2022. Born and raised in the small Texas town of Elsa to Maribel Loredo Ochoa and Justo Alejandro Rodriguez, before living out the rest of his teenage years in Edinburg, Tx. Alejandro, also popularly known as “A-rod” fought his way out of the struggle to defend his country in the United States Marine Corps straight out of high school. Alejandro, Alex, Rodriguez is Preceded in death by his grandparents Maria Esther Ramirez and Justo Rodriguez and Josefina Ochoa Hernandez and Hipolito Loredo Briones. Alex grew up in Elsa, Tx. Before moving to Edinburg, where he met his girlfriend, now wife, and became the first member of his family to graduate high school breaking free from all the statistical odds set against him. Even more so, enlisting in the United States Marine corps and dedicating 8 years of his life to our country where he once again experienced a complete turnaround of being the “problem marine” to becoming meritoriously promoted to Corporal and achieving the rank of Sergeant. He had a love for playing all sports but most of all basketball. He also found peace in drawing, fishing, spending time with family and friends, and continuously making new memories. Alex was a beautiful soul who had an abundance of love to offer to anyone who veered in his path. Because of his grandmothers constant reminder, Alex believed he had “un don” and a reason to be on this planet—little did he know, he was the gift. He provided everyone around him with happiness, a shoulder to lean on, and never hesitated to offer a helping hand. He provided a light to those he loved and encountered in a world built to break you down. Alejandro married his high school sweet heart and with their love created two beautiful daughters before separating from the military in 2020. Alex dedicated the rest of his years to being the best father, son, friend, and husband he could possibly before spreading his wings and flying free. Although he is no longer with us physically, he will always hold a special place in our hearts as our Hero. Alejandro is survived by: Tania M. Rodriguez (Wife), Alani L.

UU., se fue tan joven a los 28 años el 5 de mayo de 2022. Nació y se crió en el pequeño pueblo de Texas de Elsa de Maribel Loredo Ochoa y Justo Alejandro Rodríguez, antes de vivir el resto. de su adolescencia en Edinburg, Tx. Alejandro, también conocido popularmente como “A-rod”, luchó para salir de la lucha por defender a su país en el Cuerpo de Marines de los Estados Unidos justo al salir de la escuela secundaria. Alejandro, Alex, Rodriguez es precedido en la muerte por sus abuelos Maria Esther Ramirez y Justo Rodriguez y Josefina Ochoa Hernandez e Hipolito Loredo Briones Alex creció en Elsa, Texas. Antes de mudarse a Edinburg, donde conoció a su novia, ahora esposa, y se convirtió en el primer miembro de su familia en graduarse de la escuela secundaria, liberándose de todas las probabilidades estadísticas en su contra. Más aún, al enlistarse en el Cuerpo de Marines de los Estados Unidos y dedicar 8 años de su vida a nuestro país donde una vez más experimentó un vuelco total de ser el “marine problemático” a ser ascendido meritoriamente a Cabo y alcanzar el rango de Sargento. Le encantaba jugar todos los deportes, pero sobre todo el baloncesto. También encontró paz dibujando, pescando, pasando tiempo con familiares y amigos, y creando continuamente nuevos recuerdos. Alex era un alma hermosa que tenía mucho amor para ofrecer a cualquiera que se interpusiera en su camino. Debido al constante recordatorio de su abuela, Alex creía que tenía "un don" y una razón para estar en este planeta; no sabía que él era el regalo. Proporcionó felicidad a todos los que lo rodeaban, un hombro en el que apoyarse y nunca dudó en ofrecer una mano amiga. Proporcionó una luz a aquellos a quienes amaba y encontró en un mundo construido para derribarte. Alejandro se casó con su amor de secundaria y con su amor tuvo dos hermosas hijas antes de separarse del ejército en 2020. Alex dedicó el resto de sus años a ser el mejor padre, hijo, amigo y esposo que pudo antes de extender sus alas y volar libre. Aunque ya no está con nosotros físicamente, siempre ocupará un lugar especial en nuestros corazones como nuestro Héroe. A Alejandro le sobreviven: Tania M. Rodriguez (Esposa), Alani L.
