Nelson F. Rodarte Jr.

October 16th, 1978 - November 25th, 2017

Biography


Nelson Francisco “Horse” Rodarte Jr., 39, an electrician by trade and business owner of Mountain Man Electric, who resided in Rodarte, New Mexico, passed away tragically on Saturday, November 25, 2017. He was preceded in death by his mamma Eva Griego, sister Maggie Rodarte, and bestfriends Aaron and Fernando Rodarte and John Gurule. He is survived by his father Nelson Rodarte, daughter Kathleen Gonzales (mother Kimberly Gonzales), sisters Sara and Angelica Rodarte, nephew Antonio Rodarte, nieces Klarissa Medina, Mackayla and Briona Duran, Monique Rodarte, Leandrea Martinez, and cousins Andrea Griego, Felisha Tollardo, and Alberta Romero whom he considered his sisters. Jr. also appreciated the Gonzales family for all they had done for him and his daughter. Nelson truly lived up to the description of his name. He was a very loveable, respectful, outgoing guy who cared for others and helped everyone, no questions asked. He was successful, educated, handsome, and hardworking. Nelson was a wonderful person to spend time with and be around. The love he had for his family and friends was extraordinary. Everyone who knew him knew they could trust him with their life and that he would never let them down. He lived every day to the fullest, always saying, “live like tomorrow is not promised, at least you were happy.” Nelson believed that it was important to spend time with him while he was alive because he never wanted people to be at his grave crying.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, December 9, 2017, 10:30 AM at San Antonio de Paudua Catholic Church, Penasco, New Mexico. Burial will take place at a later date by the family.

I was at work today when the subject came up of a place I had worked but a few years back...I began telling my co-workers about that place, then began to reminisce about one of the JourneyMen whom worked with me there...I mentioned how much I looked up to this man...how he worked with me in such a patient manner...how easily he could install massive switch gear panels and the associated large conduits with ease and efficacy...a quick single measurement was all he needed...and I was completely awestruck..At the close of my work discussion I mentioned his name...Nelson Rodarte....that's when I was informed of his passing....and Honestley It hit me really Hard...I wasn't his best friend...or even a close friend...but I looked up him...I really did...To the Family of Nelson...I m very sorry this happened.....and for the loss we endured... please find comfort knowing that you arnt the only one feeling this loss...as Nelson was loved and admired by many......
