Douglas Michael Rodriguez

April 5, 1991 - September 5, 2017
Born in Poughkeepsie, NY
Resided in Poughkeepsie, NY


Douglas Michael Rodriguez was one of the most beautiful souls that will ever exist in this world. He was loving, carefree, non-judgmental, and one of the most affectionate individuals we have ever known. He was truly a beacon of light for all that knew him, the sunshine in a sea of darkness.

Doug brightened the world on April 5, 1991, and from that moment on, he touched every soul he encountered.

Douglas is survived by his mother, Dorothy; father, James; biological father, John; siblings: Jonathan, Christina, Nicholas, and Elizabeth; half-brothers, Nicholas, Thomas, and Christopher; his partner, Robert; grandparents; many aunts and uncles; cousins; the rest of his loving family; and his friends who became family.

Douglas was a 2010 graduate of Poughkeepsie High School. He went on to become a certified PCA, in order to help those less fortunate. He was very proud of his career.

Doug left us on Tuesday, September 5, 2017. We take comfort in knowing that he has been welcomed by our Heavenly Father and other loved ones who were gone too soon.
