Manuel "Manny" Rodriguez
October 1, 1941 - January 7, 2021
San Luis Obispo, California - Manuel "Manny" Rodriguez, age 79, left this world peacefully on January 7, 2021, surrounded by loved ones, in San Luis Obispo, CA. He was a dedicated and loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was very proud and supportive of his family and showed that every day. Anyone that was around Manuel immediately felt his loving spirit and witnessed his kind heart. Manuel was born in Tempoal Veracruz, Mexico. He came to the United States with his older brothers by way of playing music in churches. He was a man of God and expressed that through his music with his band Los Embajadores Del Rey. He passed his love for playing music onto some of his grandchildren. Manuel is survived by his children Doreen McKenna (Dan), Jeanine Rodriguez (Austin), Lisa Elder (Joe), and Eric Rodriguez (Corinne) and his grandchildren Ryan, Brandon, Megan, Kaitlin, Michela, Hailey, Jeffrey, Aidan, Wieland and Aria. Manuel will be greatly missed by all, but his family knows that he is dancing in heaven with the love of his life, wife of 50 years, Annette Rodriguez. We love and will miss you Dad!

My dad was an amazingly, talented and loving man. A person never left feeling unloved around my dad. He was a hugger and you knew it was genuine. He was very proud of his family, grandkids and his children. He loved his brothers and sister, just as much. We lost an amazing father who left us to early. We still had travel plans, but obviously, my mom and Jesus needed him more. I’ll miss you dad. You were my rock, my cheerleader, my whole world, from day one of my life. I will cherish all those great memories, our long, two hour phone calls and our last visit together. I will always be your little girl, no matter how old I am. Being your oldest daughter has been so much fun. Thank you for everything and I’ll miss you. Until we meet again. Have fun with mom.
Doreen McKenna
