  11. My deep condolences Cindy. Fred was a bad ass guy, that enjoyed sharing his stories about him and Ramon when they were going to college. The stories were funny, but always had a moral to it. I never saw him without a smile. He was always helpful, and filled with knowledge. He was always there for the family…and now we are here for him. God Bless.

  12. My deepest condolences to the Rodriguez family. May God bless you and keep you. Coach Rodriguez was my basketball coach at Elgin High School, my junior and senior year and he taught me so much about my self and about my potential to be the best me. Coach gave me the nickname “Money” because he said “ all I did on the court was make “money”aka making shots for the team all day. I will miss his guidance and I will always remember him for helping me in my basketball career! His smile and love to help children was contagious and I pray his wife and children keep that alive. Go Wildcats and may your legacy live on!# Team Elgin High School.

  13. My most sincere condolences to his wife and children and all his family members. I knew Fred from Family Heritage Life Insurance. He had recently become an agent with Homesteaders Life Company.
