Our father, Primitivo Rodriguez, served as the former Chief of Police for Elsa Police Department. He dedicated over 39 years of police service to the community of Elsa PD, Edcouch PD, and La Villa PD. He was loved by many, especially by all of his children and siblings. He taught us about service, lending a helping hand, following the word of God, and to live life to its fullest. He joins his loved ones in heaven and will now look down on his children and grandchildren, a protector from above. Dad, we love you and miss you, we will continue to follow in your value of service. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God.” - Matthew 5:9
