Ayden “A-Rod, #11” Rodriguez, age 17, went to be with the Lord on December 24, 2020. Ayden was a respectful, smart, competitive young man who loved to play baseball & had a heart of a lion. He loved many things but nothing could compare to the love he shared with his family and friends. His jokes & smile lit up a room and this is what will keep us going.
Ayden is survived by his mother & step-dad, Vivian Rodriguez & Christopher Rodriguez; father & step-mom Jose L. & Stephanie Rodriguez; sisters, Alexis & Leyamani Rodriguez, Daviana & Kaylyn Jimenez, & Cazmarie Rodriguez; brothers, Jose “JoeJoe” Rodriguez & Izayah Quinones; maternal grandparents, John & Vivian Rodriguez; paternal grandparents, Luis A. & Maria Rodriguez; Aunts & Uncles, Maria Christina & Jermaine Shapiro, Johnathan & Alyssa Rodriguez,
Rosalie & Holvin Figueroa Jr., and Anna & Benjamin Cruz, as well as many loving cousins and friends.
Often we take things for granted, but remember tomorrow is never promised. Everyone is encouraged to make memories with your loved ones. At the end of it all, memories are the only thing that lasts forever. Pray with your children and tell your children you love them daily; even if you think they already know. The love between a parent and a child is the most precious love known. As this rough year comes to an end, pray for strength, for faith & forgiveness.
Family and friends will be received on Thursday, December 31, 2020 from 9am to 11:30am, followed by funeral services at 11:30am at DeMarco-Luisi Funeral Home 2755 S. Lincoln Ave., Vineland. Burial will follow in Sacred Heart Cemetery, Vineland.
