George C. Rodrigues

A funeral mass for George C. Rodrigues, 81, of Satellite Beach, Florida, was held at Holy Name of Jesus Church in Indialantic, Florida, on December 14, at 10:30 a.m. followed by burial in the memorial garden. He died on Wednesday, December 4, at home after a long battle with a chronic illness.

He was born on January 12, 1932, in Brooklyn, New York, to George and Mabel (Jelly) Rodrigues. George graduated from NYU with a B.I.E. degree. He and Aileen married on June 13, 1953. He spent two years in the Army – some in Korea. In 1956, they moved to Washington, Georgia, and they spent the next 25 years working and raising their six children.

In 1981, he and Aileen moved to Satellite Beach, Florida, where he worked at Patrick AFB. Retiring in 1996, he volunteered with the Shine Program (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) and with the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide.

He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years Aileen; children, George (Fran), Michael (Susan), Barbara, Peter (Cheryl), John (Vicki) and Elizabeth (Alison); sister Dorothy; seven grandchildren; five greatgrandchildren and one great-great grandchild. He was very proud of his family and will be missed by many.
