Jose A. Rodriguez

Jose A. Rodriguez, of Warsaw, passed away unexpectedly at Kosciusko Community Hospital on Friday, May 6, 2022, at the age of 66.

Born in New York on July 20, 1955, he was the son of Radame Soto Alvarado and Maria Tejera Rios. On June 7, 2015, he married his love, Blanca Sanchez. True to his hardworking nature, Jose spent most of his career working as a polisher at Zimmer Biomet up until his retirement in 2020.

Jose had a phenomenal sense of humor and rarely knew a stranger. He genuinely loved Halloween and had a large collection of Halloween masks in addition to other collectibles. He enjoyed cooking for others, especially his family. Jose also had a sweet tooth as he loved chocolates and sweets. He loved music of all kinds and house plants, of which he had many. Most of all, Jose loved his family and his five grandchildren.

Those who remember this quirky, fun-loving man include his wife, Blanca; children, Xiomara (Matthew) Naugher and Luis Rodriguez; 5 grandchildren; sisters, Olga Ruiz and Evelyn Rodriguez Tejera; and brother, Jerry Espada Tejera.
