July 20, 1956 - December 29, 2021
Audon "Adam" Rodriguez, Jr., 65, of Bay City, our loving, humorous, generous, and hard working husband, father, Papa, brother, uncle, and friend went home to be with the Lord on the afternoon of Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at his residence. Adam was born on July 20, 1956 in Rosebud, Texas, the son of the late Audon and Louisa (Reyna) Rodriguez. Growing up, Adam enjoyed playing "King of the Hill" with his brothers and time spent with his cousins in Austin, Texas, as well as racing cars. He graduated from Pinconning High School with the Class of 1975 and went on to study Mechanical Engineering at Delta College. While in the hospital he happened to meet a young lady by the name of Mary Helen Cantu. A year later, he asked her on a date and the rest was history. They were united in marriage on November 19, 1977, sharing 44 years, two daughters, and countless memories. Adam worked as a welder inspector, and also worked for Bush Hog (contracted by Dow Chemical Company) as a HAZMAT Inspector. He later drove heavy duty trucks containing HAZMAT materials. A true servant of the Lord, Adam was a faithful member of In His Presence Ministries, and even spent time in his younger years in Costa Rica doing missionary work. He had a tremendous faith and true love for God. In his free time, Adam enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, and time spent with his family, especially his two granddaughters, who were the lights of his life. His caring and kind ways will forever live on. To carry on his legacy, Adam leaves his loving wife, Mary Helen Rodriguez; daughter, Crystal (Thomas) LaPan; granddaughters, Amelia and Callie LaPan; siblings, Santos (Gracie) Rodriguez, Richard, Rodolfo, and Roy Rodriguez, David (Jill) Rodriguez, Maria Rodriguez, Virginia (Lee) Guardiola; father-in-law, Ruben Cantu; brother-in-law, Armando Hinojos, along with many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Adam was welcomed home to Heaven by his daughter, Erica Lee Rodriguez; grandparents, Juan and Inez Reyna; siblings, Elvita Rodriguez, Alice Rodriguez, Eddie Rodriguez, and Juan Rodriguez, along with his in-laws, Guadalupe & Alvita Hinojos; and Emilio, Mario, and Ernesto Hinojos. Adam's family will be present to receive visitors on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM and again on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 from 11:00 AM until Adam's 12:00 Noon Funeral Ceremony at Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 821 N.
