Beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend passed away on Tuesday, December 21, 2021, at his home, with his family at his side; at the age of 71 years.
The son of the late Anastacio and Isidra (Gonzalez) Rodriquez, Mingo was born on October 5, 1950 in Saginaw, Michigan. He graduated from Saginaw High School with the class of 1969. Mingo then proudly served in the United States Marine Corps until he was Honorably Discharged. He married the love of his life, Beatrice F. Chavez on June 12, 1971, at St. Mary's Cathedral, Saginaw; she survives him. Mingo worked at General Motors for 30 years of loyal and dedicated service. He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, where he served as a Hospitality Minister for over 18 years. Mingo enjoyed listening to his music, watching all sports, and was the family jokester. Above all, Mingo cherished the time spent with his family and loved ones, especially sitting on the porch with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Mingo would be best described as a family man; If someone walked in as a friend, they would walk out as family.
Surviving besides his loving wife of 50 years: Beatrice; are their two sons: Ramon Rodriquez Jr., Jesse Rodriquez; ten grandchildren: Ramon III, Veronica, Yolanda, Domingo, Melissa, Larissa, Jesse Jr., Luciano, Isabella, Joseph; twelve great-grandchildren; two sisters and one brother: Maria Elida (Martin) Ortega, Juanita Castillo, and Noel Rodriquez. Also surviving are many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends. Besides his parents, Mingo was preceded in death by his brother: Anastacio Rodriquez Jr.
