Richard Ibarra Rodriguez Obituary
Richard was born in Bakersfield, CA, to Casimiro and Eloisa Rodriguez. He was one of 14 children. Two of his brothers preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife Gloria and two children, his son Aaron and daughter-in-law Lisa, his grandchildren, Kyle, Ryan, and Sage, and his daughter, Julie Ming, and six brothers and five sisters and numerous nieces and nephews.
He lived in Delano and grew up at Sierra Vista Ranch where his father was the overseer. He went through school in Delano. In high school, he was noted as "one of the Rodriguez boys" who excelled in sports, winning many awards, especially in baseball.
He moved to Bakersfield as an adult and chose to be self-employed at landscaping-gardening, swimming pool maintenance and fiberglass refinishing of pools. His self-employment allowed him time to focus on his first priority in life, that of serving his God, Jehovah.
The memorial service will be on April 25, 2015, at 11:30am, 5501 Brundage Lane, "D" hall, Bakersfield. For additional information please call Basham Funeral Care at 873-8200.
