Jesus Angel Rios Rodriguez, 82 of Gulf Breeze, Fl passed away on July 27, 2018. He was surrounded by his loving family.
Papi was born in Las Marias, Puerto Rico on May 6, 1936. His wife Cristobalina Rios of 57 years of marriage, preceded him in death in 2014.
He is survived by his daughter Evelyn Caraballo (Orlando) of Gulf Breeze, Fl, Maria de Jesus Rios (Angel) of San Sebastian PR, Miguel Angel Rios (Jennifer) of Milton, Fl, Jesus Angel Rios, Jr. (Nancy) of San Sebastian, PR, Awilda Enid Rios Gallelli (Giuseppi) of Philadelphia, Pa, Joel Rios (Lisa) of Gulf Breeze, Fl, and Yolanda Edwin (Kanwal) of Norristown, Pa. Papi had 20 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.
Papi was a hard worker, farmer, maintenance and family man. Papi was very firm in what he believed in as well as his equal love for his family. And most importantly his strong love for God. Papi, along with Mami, did missionary work in Mexico and Puerto Rico. Most people did not know that. Papi loved this country and was a patriot, even though he was not a member of the military. He wanted the American Flag placed over his casket. Mami made an American Flag for 9/11 and now Papi has it draped over his casket. While we grieve, we are also blessed and grateful of his beliefs and knowing that he is with his family in God and in his new life with Mami by his side. Papi couldn't wait to be with Mami and our Lord Jesus Christ for eternity. Papi we will miss you and l love you always.
Visitation will be from 12:00 – 1:00 pm with services following at 1:00 pm on Monday July 30, 2018 at Family-Funeral & Cremation, 7253 Plantation Road, Pensacola, Florida.
