Rodney Alvarez

November 13, 1960 – December 1, 2020

Rodney Alvarez passed away at work on December 1, 2020 in Webster, TX due to a heart attack. He was 60.

Rodney was born on November 13, 1960 in Houston, Texas to his parents Roy Alvarez Sr. and Janie Centeno Alvarez. He graduated from Friendswood High School in 1979. He attended college at Alvin Community College, University of Houston, and San Jacinto College to obtain his associates degree and journeyman electrician license.

He worked at Houston Lighting and Power (CenterPoint Energy) for fifteen years and nineteen years at Clear Creek ISD as a journeyman electrician.

Rodney enjoyed playing bass guitar and serving in the sound booth on the worship team for Gulfway Baptist Church and Crosspoint Church for over 20 years. He enjoyed volunteering for various ministry/service projects through the church. As a musician he enjoyed playing and making guitars, listening to his stereo music, and learning about sound equipment. He also enjoyed mountain biking on trails in parks. He enjoyed sharing his love for Jesus with others and talking about music. Rodney often said "Jesus is coming soon." He would want everyone to join him in heaven and know "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Rodney was married to his wife Kim for 31 years. He enjoyed traveling with her and their son Jacob. His favorite trip was going on an Alaska cruise for their 30th wedding anniversary.

    To my brother Rodney,

    You shared your love for Jesus and you enriched our lives with your kindness. Even though you are no longer with us, you will never be forgotten.

    I'll always see your face
    The corner of your smile
    And all the little things that no one will ever know
    Like it was yesterday, won't ever fade away
    Goodbye is just a word that I will never say
    You will never be forgotten

    A million days could pass us by
    But what is time but just a dream
    Oh I still feel you here with us
    You're more than a memory
    Oh you will never be forgotten

    But If hearts are made of dust
    And if we fell from the stars
    I look up tonight and know just where you are
    You will never be forgotten

    Miss you dearly,
    Byron and Nita Lousig-Nont II

    Dear Uncle Rodney,
    I hope you knew how blessed and lucky we were to have had you as our uncle.
    There are so many wonderful childhood memories that I will never forget. You were always the cool uncle who always played with us, played the guitar for us and had great conversations with. I will always remember our family morning get-togethers, where grandpa would cook breakfast for everyone and you always sat with is, at the "kid table" (with all of your nieces and nephews). I still have a photo of all of us sitting at that breakfast table!
    You were a great inspiration and an awesome role-model. You always found ways to give back to your community and you have inspired me to do the same. You had great taste in music and introduced some of the most amazing music artists to my dad and I.
    Although I can't believe you are gone, I know you are not far from us. I have found peace and comfort knowing that you are safe in heaven with grandma and grandpa.
    I love you and will never forget you.
    Love,
    Little Helen, Rene Jr., Amaya, Jaden, Isabella and Rene lll

  7. Uncle Rodney you will be greatly missed. You were one of the biggest influences on my life in my formative years. As a child I would get excited every time we would go visit our grandparents house. You were always fun, funny, and kind to your nieces and nephews. Watching you play guitar from the the time I was a kid is the reason why i started playing guitar and still play to this day. May you rest in peace. To my aunt Kim and cousin Jacob, you have my deepest condolences. I hope you find the strength peace you need during these times.

    1. Dear Uncle Rodney,
      It's hard to believe you are gone. Thank you for being part of some of my best childhood memories, I will cherish those forever. Thank you for always being so kind, fun and loving to your nieces and nephews. You are so deeply missed and will forever have a huge place in my heart. Aunt Kim and Jacob, my deepest condolences, I pray you are able to find strength and peace. We love you very much.
      Rest In Peace and I love you Uncle Rodney

  8. To Uncle Rodney,
    It is so hard to grasp that you are gone. I will miss your radiant smiles at our family thanksgivings, and always getting you and my dad confused for one another. I always loved hearing your childhood stories with your siblings,I know those memories will bring a sense of happiness to us during this difficult time. You will be greatly missed.

    To Aunt Kim and Jacob,
    You have my deepest condolences, just know we are all thinking of y'all and love y'all very much. I hope you are comforted by the many happy memories together.

  9. Rest In Peace Rodney. Thank you for all the wonderful memories of learning to play guitar and going through high school in Friendswood. My sincere condolences to the family.

    Rodney was my favorite cousin for many of the same reasons all the family have listed. I can remember going to the family house before he was married and hanging out in his room, it was the cool room. We would listen to new music and I can remember how many bands he introduced me to. As we got older Rodney also helped me learn to play guitar and we would have jam sessions where his patience was tested while I was learning and he was so good. We also built a guitar together which I still have today. To Kim and Jacob please accept condolences from my family to yours. He will be missed but never forgotten!!!
