Religious affiliation: Other
Carlos A. Rodriguez, 45, of Brockton, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 15, 2017 at the Stanley R. Tippett Hospice Home in Needham, Massachusetts. His passing ended a journey of six years with glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive form of brain cancer, which he bravely faced.He was born November 29, 1971 in Aguas Buenas, Puerto Rico, son of Abigail Rosario and Manuel Rodriguez.
He graduated from Brockton High School and proceeded to receive training in Computing at ITT Technical Institute. He went on to obtain many other technical certifications and was proudly self-taught. Carlos was successful in his profession, becoming co-owner of Direct IT in Waltham, Massachusetts, along with his business partner and good friend, David Javaheri. Throughout his professional career he made many lasting friendships, and he will be missed by his work-family.
In addition to his devotion to his career, Carlos filled his life with an enthusiasm for automobiles, motorcycles, and adventure. He was a fervent lover of music, dance and generously shared himself without having to be asked to. In life he gained reputation as a kind and selfless man, a loyal and protective friend.
Carlos is survived by his step-daughter Ana Rodriguez, his daughters Tanairi Rodriguez, Arianis Rodriguez; his mother Abigail Rosario; many aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces; his grandchildren; his siblings Jose Rodriguez, Maria J. Quiros, Ana Rodriguez, Manuel Rodriguez, Martin Rosario, Miriam Rodriguez, Felix Rodriguez; and the love of his life, Gissi Cruz, as well as their mutual friends, and her family.
Carlos will forever be remembered. The sound of his laughter will always be desired, the touch of his strong hands will be greatly missed, and his comforting hugs will never be duplicated. The loss of Carlos has left a painful vacancy in the lives and hearts of those who knew him. To say we are mourning is an understatement.
