Obituary for Julio H. Rodriguez

On June 30th, 2019, Julio H. Rodriguez, loving father, brother, uncle, friend, and mentor to many, passed away from brain cancer at the age of 69. Julio was born on February 14, 1950 in Salinas, Puerto Rico to Julio Enrique Rodriguez and Maria Dominga Rivera Rodriguez. He was married to Diane Willey Rodriguez from 1972 to 1996. They remained loving friends and united parents and grandparents to their two daughters, Julia and Victoria, and granddaughter, Ellie. He was the first in his family to complete college, earning his degree in accounting from the University of Illinois at Chicago, followed by completion of his MBA at DePaul. He was a Certified Public Accountant, and had an international corporate career that included serving as Chief Financial Officer for Wal-Mart Argentina and Puerto Rico. When he returned to Chicago, he co-founded his financial consulting company, LRC, and worked extensively with local non-profit and charitable organizations.
Julio was committed to mentorship and community service, and served as a board member for the Association House of Chicago, HACE, and the Puerto Rico Red Cross. He enjoyed exploring culture through travel, music, art, and wine, and was always ready for a round of golf or to go jogging with his dog. Family was his top priority, and he often advised them to live, love, and laugh without fear.
Julio was preceded in death by his parents, and survived by his sister, Noris, children, Julia and Victoria, nephew, Paul, and niece, Marie. Viewing 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. visitation will continue from 6:30 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. on Friday July 5th at Drechsler, Brown, and Williams Funeral Home in Oak Park, IL, followed by funeral services Saturday July 6th at 2:30 at St. Christopher’s in Oak Park. Donations in his name can be sent to Association House of Chicago, the Humane Society, or DePaul University.
