Juan "Johnny" Avalos Rodriguez

January 10, 1949 — May 16, 2020

Juan “Johnny” Avalos Rodriguez, 71, of Oregon, Ohio, went home peacefully to heaven on Saturday, May 16, 2020.  He was surrounded by family.  Johnny was born January 10, 1949 in Hidalgo County, Texas to Jesus and Nieves (Avalos) Rodriguez.

Johnny is survived by his wife, Aurora (Segura) Rodriguez, his children; Naomi (Eddie) Kolota of West Liberty, Ohio and John Lucas Rodriguez of Luckey, Ohio, grandchildren; Destiny Kolota and Eddie Jr. “Buddy” Kolota, great-grandson, Myles, sisters; Frances Nino, Delores Davis, Rosa Garcia, Susie (Manuel) Arriaga, Stella (Juan) Carrasco, and Petra (Jose) Cardoso, brother, Robert (Sandra) Rodriguez, and many nephews, nieces and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers; Narciso “Ciso” Rodriguez and Jesus “JuJu” Rodriguez Jr., sisters; Marcie Guardiola and Raquel Estrada. 

Johnny was a 1967 graduate of Gibsonburg High School and a 1994 graduate of Owens State Community College.  He served with the U.S. Army.  He retired in 2011 from Whirlpool-Clyde Division and attended Life Chapel Church.

Johnny will be remembered for his heart the size of Texas and his unselfishness.  He enjoyed anything sweet to eat, family gatherings, traveling, and sports especially attending his grandchildren’s sporting events.  He was the best father and grandfather.  His passion was also to help those struggling with addiction.  We would like to thank his AA family for their support over the last 42 years.  “One day at a time.”
