Obituary

Jesse Rodriquez, 87, passed away on March 4, 2020, in Kansas City, MO.

A visitation will be held on Monday, March 9, from 6-8pm, with funeral service on Tuesday, March 10, at 10:00 am, both at Carson-Speaks Chapel, 1501 W. Lexington Ave. Burial with military honors to follow in Mount Washington Cemetery.

Jesse was born on May 31, 1932 in Kansas City, MO, the son of Ascention and Isabelle Rodriquez. At age 16, he started working at Armco Steel. In 1952, he was enlisted with the US Army, and served two years during the Korean War. He was honorably discharged in November of 1954 and returned home. On December 18, 1954, he married Dorothy M. Rodriguez, and to this union were born three children. He resumed working for Armco, and he retired from there after 40 years as a steel worker. He was a longtime member of the USW Local 13, and a lay minister with Our Lady of Peace Parish in Kansas City. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, hub cap dealing, and playing games like pool, horseshoes, and cards. His favorite activity of all was tending to his garden, where he grew tomatoes and green beans.

Survivors include his children: Jesse Frank Rodriquez, Theresa Rodriquez, and Joyce Baldin Kerr; grandchildren: Melissa Rodriquez, Krystal Rodriquez, Michael Wells, Ryan Baldin, Nicholas Baldin, and Zoe Baldin; great-grandchildren: Salena Jones, Xavier Jones, Dominic Van Alst, Marcus Rodriquez, Andrew Rodriquez, Zakira Rodriquez, Camden Baldin, EJ Baldin, and Joanie Baldin; siblings, Maggie Rodriquez, Josephine Ruiz, and Louie Rodriquez; and many extended family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy; his parents, Ascention and Isabelle; and his siblings, Michael, Patricia, and Juanita.
