Stephen Rodrigues

Son. Brother. Partner. Friend.

 

Born May 14th, 1988 Stephen Rodrigues died July 24th, 2014 at the age of 26. His memory lives on in those close to him. Filled with wonder and compassion from an early age, Stephen earned the respect of those around him as a sea-lover, a grammar nerd, a book-cherisher, a coffee-chugger, and a general goof.

Stephen's life in his later years were split between Southern California and Providence, Rhode Island. Brown University fit into a special nook in his heart, and he was awarded a degree posthumously in 2015.

If in Encinitas, do visit the Surfing Madonna sculpture near the I-5 overpass by Leucadia Pizzeria to see a brick dedicated to his memory. Also consider taking a stroll down to Swami's beach to see one of his favorite surf spots.
