Daniel Roderick

Roderick Family

Daniel T. Roderick, 58, died September 11, 2021 in Maricopa, AZ. He was the son of Donald and Carleen Roderick and was born at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, Alabama. His military family brought him to Avondale when he was a little boy. He graduated from Agua Fria High School with the class of 1981. Daniel served in the U.S. Navy as a young man where he learned the machinist trade and applied those skills in the private sector. He later returned to his early roots as a salesman and had a lengthy career in pool and solar sales. Dan was known for his caring heart and his kindness and compassion for all. His father would proudly say of him, “He has never known a stranger.” Dan was always willing to step up and take action to help others whenever and wherever he could and he had an uncanny sense for when his intervention was needed. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Stephen. He is survived by his wife, Emily, his son, Charles Robinson and his brother Lawrence, his daughter Haley, his siblings Sandy Kennedy (Ken), Cindy Owens, Donny Roderick and Nichole Swanson. He will be missed by 44 nieces and nephews whom he adored immensely. Visitation will be held from 6:00-7:30 PM on Friday, September 17th and a funeral mass at 2:00 PM on Saturday, September 18th at St. John Vianney Catholic Church located at 800 W Loma Linda Blvd. Goodyear, AZ. Services being handled by Thompson’s Funeral Chapel. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to Hospice of the Valley or Arizona Animal Welfare League.

  10. I grew up up on the same street as Danny and his wonderful family. Sorry to have seen his obituary too late to make it to services. I worked with Danny’s dad, Don, at SJV years ago and they reminded me of each other. Both were kind and warm and ready to give you the shirt off their back if needed.
    Danny was one of the good ones and heaven is better for having received him. May God bless him and may memories of him provide comfort to his family.

Both were warm and kind and would give you the shirt off their back if you needed it. I regret that I didn’t see his obituary in time to attend the services.
    Danny was one of the best men and heaven is better for having received him. May God bless his soul and may his family find comfort in their memories of him.
