Phillip Matthew Rodriguez was 28 years old and born in Lubbock, Texas to Felipe and Maria Rodriguez on July 20,1991. Phillip graduated from Lubbock High School in 2009.
While attending Lubbock High School, Phillip was a part of various athletic teams in which he received many accolades including being listed to the All-District 1st team offense along with holding weightlifting records. Phillip’s life after high school consisted of devoting time to his family and hobbies. He was a man of many skills which was reflected by his work as a master butcher and administrator at his family’s meat market. His hard-working hands were also able to build his wife her house from the ground up. Phillip was also an avid motorcycle and gun enthusiast with many aspirations to increase his collection. Phillip was a great role model for everyone that he came into contact with. He was a protector, his wife’s “Osito”, loving, caring, selfless, and respectful. He enjoyed coaching his younger brothers throughout their athletic endeavors, and he would always be on the sidelines never missing a game. He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Manuel Barcenas and Salvador Rodriguez, and uncles, Santiago and Gabriel Rodriguez.
