Benigno Amos Rodriguez

June 2, 2020

Benigno Amos Rodriguez, 88, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, formerly of Roosevelt, Utah, entered eternal rest June 2, 2020.

He was a hard-working family man who was respected by many in the oil fields as well as his church. Benigno, one of eight children, was born in Blanco, New Mexico, to Rose and Manuel Rodriguez and was raised by his grandmother, Edicia Jaquez. In 1956 he married his sweetheart Beatrice Gomez and they celebrated over 63 wonderful years. He was so proud of the family they created.  

He lived in Roosevelt, Utah, for about five years and made many wonderful friends in the community whom he remained close to.  

He is survived by their children, Edicia Rodriguez (Chuck), Teddy Rodriguez (Cheryl), Carmen Robison, Mike Rodriguez (Crystal), Bobby Rodriguez (Lisa), Dolores Beames (Bo), and John Rodriguez (Connie); 18 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter. Benigno was preceded in death by his parents; his brother Levi; son-in-law Gary; granddaughter Danielle; and great-granddaughter Kingzlee.

He was dedicated to his faith in God as a parishioner of Our Lady of the Annunciation Catholic Parish and as a member of the Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem. Benigno was a faithful employee of Shell Oil retiring after 31 years. He loved sports and was a loyal Lobo fan and remained an Aztec Tigers fan. A private Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of the Annunciation Catholic Church with entombment to follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery. The family would like to express a special thanks to Presbyterian Home Health Care and Hospice Programs for their professional compassionate care.
