Obituary of Mario Rodriguez
Mario Rodriguez, age 82 of Bridgeport, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 14, 2019 at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport. Born on October 29, 1936 in Patillas, Puerto Rico, he was a son of the late Alejandro and Alejandrina Lebron Rodriguez.

He spent many days enjoying the seashore, but above all, he cherished the time spent surrounded by his grandchildren. He was a loving father, grandfather, uncle, and friend who will be truly missed by all who knew him.
Mario is survived by his beloved children, Alex Rodriguez and his wife Beatriz of Monroe, Mario Rodriguez and his wife Diana of NJ, and daughter Carmen Rodgers and her husband Richard of NJ, and his cherished grandchildren, Melissa Rodgers, Taylor Rodriguez, Lucas Rodgers, Jonathan Rodriguez, Cristian Rodriguez, Santiago Rodriguez, Laura Rodriguez, William Rodriguez, and Veronika Rodriguez.
