Ernie was born April, 16th 1961 in Los Angeles, California to Thomas and Irene. He was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. His smile and laugh lit up an entire room and he made friends everywhere he went. His passion for helping others shined through his years of work as a handyman. There are no words that could describe his beautiful soul. He never let this world break his spirit or make him give up hope. He was so brave and courageous. He is immensely loved and will be missed dearly. It broke our hearts to lose him but he didn't go alone. Part of us went with him the day God called him home.
He is survived by his wife Jaquelin Rodriguez, children Irene "nana" Rodriguez, William "wood" Blackstone, Ryan Rodriguez, sisters Ann, Dolores, Rosie, brother Andy, family and friends.
