Rodriguez, Luis Valenzuela - Sacramento  
Luis "Apache" Valenzuela Rodriguez left this world on April 14, 2016, surrounded by family and friends. He was sixty years old. Luis was innocent. He fought for vindication for 37 years. Lies were told about him; in the media, in the courtroom. Many betrayed him, but many more loved him and stood by him. Despite this great injustice and all the indignities he was subjected to in prison, Luis woke up every morning with a prayer of gratitude, thanking the creator for another day on earth, even if it meant it would be spent behind bars. His spirit was never broken. His sovereignty never compromised. He walked his path with dignity. Luis was a good man. He shared what little he had with those who had less. He gave guidance and encouragement to many. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, son and brother. He was not home with us, but he was ever present in our lives. Luis was an Apache-Mestizo warrior. His medicine was powerful. He chose his passing. He gathered us around him to see him out on his journey. He obliterated the prison from his hospital room and from his life and he passed to the spirit world a free man. Luis was preceded in death by his granddaughter. He is survived by his wife, ex-wife, son and daughter, parents, sister and brothers, eight grandchildren, a great grandson and many other relatives and friends. A service will be held on April 30, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. at East Lawn Mortuary (5757 Greenback Lane, Sacramento). Friends are invited to attend.

RODRIGUEZ, Richard A.  
Surrounded by family, our beloved and loving husband, father and grandfather, Richard Rodriguez left this life at sunset on April 22, 2016 at the age of 83. He was our rock. His passing has changed our lives forever. Richard was a native of Sacramento. He attended the old Marshall School, Sutter Junior High & Sacramento High School (class of 1951). He was a graduate of Sacramento City College with a degree in Criminal Justice. He was the first of his immediate family to graduate from college. In 1962, he married Nancy Lawrence. Both brought children from previous marriages to their union. Instead of the usual newlywed family numbering 2, when Richard and Nancy said their "I do's", they became a family of 8! They would have celebrated their 54th wedding anniversary in May. Richard served his country in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. He was a survivor of the sinking of his ship, the USS Sarsi (ATF-111) in 1952 after the ship struck a North Korean mine in the Sea of Japan. After returning from the Navy, he worked at McClellan AFB and in several departments of the City of Sacramento. On December 21, 1959, he became an officer with the Sacramento Police Department, among the first few officers of Hispanic descent. He served in the Patrol and Detective Divisions and retired in 1986 after 27 years of service. Richard was a charter member of the Sacramento Veteran Police Officers Association and the Sarsi Survivors Association. He was also a member of the National Association of Fleet Tug Sailors. Richard was a great fan of the SF Giants, Niners, Raiders and the Sacramento Kings. He loved music, and it was a disappointment to him that he did not play a musical instrument in spite of his best efforts! He enjoyed golfing, camping and spending time with family and long-time friends. Richard is survived by his wife Nancy; daughters Valerie (Patrick), Kelly, Laura and Shari; sister Dolores (Tom); grandchildren Janet, Allen, Sarah, Leslie, Lisa, Jared, Richard, Desiree, Meagen, Deanna, Juliann, Stephen, Katie, Melisa and Jamie; daughter-in-law Margaret; many great grandchildren; one great-great grandchild; cousins, nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by sons Patrick (2011) and Lawrence (2015); brothers, Paul and Louis; sisters Mary, Carmen, Lupe and his parents Claro and Librada (Lujan) Rodriguez. A Celebration of Life will take place at Nicoletti, Culjis & Herberger Funeral Home, 5401 Folsom Blvd., Sacramento, CA on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 11:00 A.M. A private inurnment will follow at East Lawn Memorial Park after the reception.

Rose-Skates, Lila - Sacramento  
Lila, whose beaming smile could light up a room, passed away on April 8, at age 87, after a recent illness. Lila will be remembered as a fabulous "gut-bucket bass player" with the Sacramento Banjo Band. She would pluck that instrument with all her heart and soul, sharing her outright joy through that bright smile. Lila worked in various departments of California state government for more than 50 years including General Services, DMV, and Education. She was predeceased by her husband, Edward Skates, her sister, Margaret, and her brother, Frank. She is survived by her niece, Marjorie Combs, and great-nieces Deborah Pearson (Clark), Gwendolyn Combs, Sarah Rose Combs, numerous great-great nephews and nieces, a great-great-great niece, and her beloved cat, Chrissy. Lila was tremendously appreciative of the staff and caregivers at Sky Park Gardens, her home for the past several years. Her appreciation extends to friendships that began in her workplace and her long affiliation with the Banjo Band, all of which continued into retirement. A celebration of her life, complete with a banjo-jam, will be held on April 30 at 2:00 PM, at Bethany Presbyterian Church, 5625 24th Street (at Fruitridge Rd), Sacramento. Lila wanted to be remembered as a "happy-go-lucky party girl." In lieu of flowers, she requested that donations be made to the March of Dimes, in appreciation of her childhood surgeries: 1755 Creekside Oaks Drive, Suite 130, Sacramento, CA 95833. In her memory, play a round of Bingo or put a few coins in a slot machine!
