Luis A. Rodriguez March 14, 1953 – November 23, 2016

Luis A. Rodriguez, 63, died Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2016, surrounded by those who loved him most and went to be with his Lord and Savior. Luis was born March 14, 1953, in San Jose, California and was a lifelong area resident. He graduated from Gilroy High School, class of 1972, where he was also known by his friends as “Chief”. He loved the outdoors and admired the handiwork of all of God’s creation. This passion he passed to his two beautiful daughters and grandchildren. Luis loved to fish, hike, work on cars, and most importantly spend time with his family. The son of field workers, he was most proud of the accomplishment that his two daughters graduated from Brown and Santa Clara Universities and most importantly that he sacrificed to support them fulfilling their dreams. He is survived by his wife, Silvia Rodriguez; his two daughters, Maiesha Sigler and Marimonte Rodriguez-Noara; his two beloved grandchildren, Ambrose and Sienna Sigler. He was a loved brother to nine siblings and uncle to numerous nieces and nephews. Services will be held at 4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 11th, 2016 at New Hope Community Church, 8886 Muraoka Drive, Gilroy, CA 95020. Arrangements by Byrgan Cremation & Burial, Los Gatos, CA. Condolences at
