Rodolfo was born August 6, 1948, to Rodolfo Chacon and Herlinda Escalante in Juarez, Mexico.
Rodolfo was a strong, handsome loving man his family described him as a man who was made of steel because nothing in this world scared or hurt him. Rodolfo had a passion for baseball. His favorite team was the Texas Rangers, anytime you walked in his room you would see him sitting in his chair with his TV tuned in to the baseball games. Rodolfo also enjoyed cooking and always had some sopita or fried burritos ready for his grandkids when they got out of school. If it was a nice day outside Rodolfo loved to take his grandkids to Family Dollar or Toot-n-Totum to get them a snack and toy. Anytime Rodolfo saw his son (Richard) outside working on his truck he made his way out there to help him and make sure he was doing everything right. Another thing about Rodolfo is he loved working on cars. Richard, his son, always said Rodolfo was not only a great man, father, grandfather, and brother but he was an overall tremendous teacher to us all. Rodolfo left this earth knowing his family cared for him and loved him dearly.
He was preceded in death by his parents Rodolfo Chacon and Herlinda Escalante, and his wife Lucina Chacon.
Those left to cherish his memory are his son and daughter-in-law Richard and Rachel Chacon; a sister, Maria De Los Santos Chacon; a brother, Jorge Chacon; a grandson, Jacob Chacon; his granddaughters, Desiree Chacon, Arianna Ramos, Alexis Chacon, Lucina Chacon, Aniah Chacon, Katalynna Chacon, Karalynna Chacon, and numerous beautiful great-grandchildren.

My grandpa was the STRONGEST man I have ever known. He had been battling Parkinson’s disease for over 20 years and it never stopped him from doing the things he loved he fought and pushed his body to continue doing everything he loved to do. He was the most amazing grandpa and an even better great- grandpa. He loveddddd all his grandkids and great-grandkids. I’ll forever cherish all the memories I have with him. I love you so much buelo until we meet again.
