Brian Rodriguez

Dec. 22, 1983 – July 16, 2023

Brian Rodriguez, 39, passed away July 16, 2023, at the Billings Clinic. 

Brian was born Dec. 22, 1983, in Longview, Texas, to Santos G. Rodriguez and Alex V. Rodriguez Sr. He was raised in Lovell.

He was an avid hunter and fisherman. His secret spots will go with him. No one knew his secret fishing spots, but he always came back with a rope full. He also fought chickens with his dad, Alex.

Brian’s greatest gift in life was being a dad to his son, Chris. Chris shares his dad’s love of fishing. 

One of Brian’s fondest memories was getting stranded in the Big Horn Mountains with his brother, David, and taking shelter in an abandoned outhouse in the dead of winter.

Brian was loved by many, and he loved just as much in return. There wasn’t a time you couldn’t call him for help. He
would drop everything to lend a hand. 

If he wasn’t fishing, you could catch him driving down Main Street, cruising with his dad, Alex “Chief,” and their dog Isabella. 

Brian was preceded in death by his nephew, Jose Aguilar, niece Bonnie Rodriguez Harback and mother Santos Rodriguez.

He is survived by his father, Alex V. Rodriguez Sr.; brothers Alexander G. Rodriguez and David G. Rodriguez; sisters Rosemary Guerrero, Elizabeth Ventura, Angie Boutwell, Amanda Devyak and Dora Rodriguez; nieces and nephews; grand-nieces and grand-nephews;
and, most of all, his son, Chris Lopez. 

Cremation has taken place.
