Jose Villegas Rodriguez

December 7, 1955 — March 16, 2024

Austin, Texas

El 16 de marzo de 2024, el mundo perdió un alma extraordinaria cuando José Villegas Rodríguez falleció en Austin, Texas. Nació el 7 de diciembre de 1955 en Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato, México, de sus amados padres Yldefonso Villegas y Ana María Rodríguez.

José fue un gran hombre conocido por su risa contagiosa y su entusiasmo por la vida. Su personalidad jovial resonó en todos los que lo conocieron y sus nietos ocupaban un lugar especial en su corazón. Encontró una inmensa alegría al pasar tiempo con ellos y hacer reír a todos los que lo rodeaban. José tenía pasión por el acordeón y el piano, mostrando su lado artístico.

A lo largo de su vida, José se enorgullecía de momentos simples pero significativos, como trabajar junto a su hijo Meme y compartir risas con sus nietos. Tenía un profundo amor por la comida, saboreando especialmente las costillas que cocinaba su hijo Javiero disfrutando de una hamburguesa doble con queso con su hija Ana.  Los logros de los que más se enorgullece José incluyen recuerdos preciados de practicar karate con su hijo Tony y anticipar ansiosamente ver Exatlon con su esposa María.

La partida de José ha dejado un profundo vacío en los corazones de su familia y amigos. Luchó con valentía hasta el final, encarnando el espíritu de un verdadero guerrero. En memoria de este amado esposo, padre, abuelo y bisabuelo, celebremos la alegría que trajo a nuestras vidas.

Le precedieron en la muerte sus padres, Yldefonso Villegas y Ana María Rodríguez; y hermana Marta.

José deja un legado de amor y recuerdos preciados. Le sobreviven su devota esposa María Rodríguez; hijos José Manuel y esposa Juana, Javier y esposa Yesenia, José Antonio y esposa Destiny; su hija Ana y su esposo Erubiel; hermanos Basiliso, Flora, Carmelita, Ascensión, Antonio, Marisela, Irene, Gloria, Lusina, Vicente y Carmen; así como multitud de nietos: Juan, Javier Jr., Jose Angel, Matthew, Damian, Abigail, Lilyana, Jeremiah, Alexander, Aiden Xzavier, Sophia, Abriella; bisnieta Jianna.

 Familiares y amigos se reunirán para un velorio en Elgin Funeral Home el viernes 22 de marzo de 6:00 p. m. a 8:00 p. m. y se recitará el Santo Rosario a las 7:00 p. m. Se llevará a cabo una misa de funeral en la Iglesia Católica St. Joseph de Manor el sábado 23 de marzo a las 10:00 a. m. La habitación será privada.

 En nuestros corazones por siempre, que José Villegas Rodríguez descanse en paz eterna.  Esto no es un adiós sino un hasta luego papá.
