April 27, 1935 ~ February 24, 2018
Henry passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on February 24, 2018. He was born April 27, 1935, son of Crisantos Rodriguez and Thelma L. Rodriguez-Gutierrez.
Henry married his childhood sweetheart, Kathleen Lindsay, on November 21, 1959 at the Cathedral of the Made-line. During their life together they raised seven children, enjoyed dancing, playing bingo, Wendover trips, and family time. He enjoyed his lifelong career as a painter, and enjoyed his time at Stampin Up!
Our Dad enjoyed spending time with his family, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends. Henry enjoyed being around and meeting people, listening to his music and having an occasional drink. He could carry on a conversation about almost anything. He was very proud of his heritage; he loved telling stories about his family and could easily talk for hours. He was very supportive of us in everything we had done. He would always be our cheering section in everything we did, whether it was an orchestra concert, wrestling matches, softball/baseball games, dance recitals, birthdays, or school achievements. Henry always taught his children that family is always important, and to be there for one another.
Henry is survived by his children Carmen Tucker, Kathryn Rodriguez, Sharon Armijo, Charlotte (Juan) Maestas, and Amy (Shad) Allred; brother Bernardo Gutierrez; sisters Agnes (Fred) Watford and Darlene Renteria; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Henry was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 65 years, Kathleen Rodriguez, and son Henry Jr., his parents Crisantos and Thelma, brother Frank Gutierrez, and grandsons Jacob Armijo and baby Dale.
A funeral Mass was be celebrated March 6 at the Cathedral of the Madeleine. Interment followed at Mt. Calvary Cemetery.
