Ricardo Roche Rodriguez

February 26, 1929 — June 2, 2024

Ricardo Roche Rodriguez (Richard), age 95, of Jamul, California, passed away

peacefully at home on June 2, 2024 with his loving daughter Angel by his side.

Richard was born on February 26, 1929, to Francisco and Rosaura Rodriguez

in Round Rock, Texas. He was the fourth of six siblings—three brothers and

three sisters—all but his youngest sister Roberta have preceded him in death.

Richard served with Company A, 224th Regiment, 40th Infantry Division, U.S.

Army in Korea in 1951. Upon separation from active duty he returned to Texas

where he met his future wife Olga.

Richard married Olga Trevino of Corpus Christi, Texas on December 6, 1953

where they lived for six years before moving to California.

Richard and Olga had three daughters and six sons and spent 30 years of their

lives together in Fremont, California raising their family. Richard worked for

the U. S. Naval Department in Alameda, California before he took his final

post at Coronado Island in San Diego, California.

Richard was married to his beloved Olga for sixty-six years until her death in

2019. He was a loyal and generous son, husband, father, grandfather,

great-grandfather, sibling, uncle, and friend.

Richard's time in the Army and later working for the Naval Dept. introduced

him to traveling the world where he experienced diverse cultures and new

landscapes. Alongside Olga, his constant companion in exploration, Richard

embarked on numerous road trips across the United States. Their travels were

not confined to domestic borders; they ventured abroad frequently, embracing

the opportunity to immerse themselves in foreign lands and discover new

perspectives. From bustling metropolises to serene natural wonders, Richard

and Olga's travel became a cornerstone of their relationship, fostering many

great memories and expanding their horizons.


Richard is survived by daughters Veronica Calderon and Angel Siscon, sons

Richard Rodriguez, Gabriel Rodriguez, Francisco Rodriguez, Samuel

Rodriguez, and Jonathan Rodriguez and seventeen grandchildren and twenty

three great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his adopted

daughter Leona Delos Reyes in 2011 and by his son Daniel Rodriguez in 2023.
