Nicolas Manuel Rodriguez, 20, of Mount Airy, passed away Thursday, May 21, 2020, at his home. He was born April 7, 2000, in Surry County, to Rodrigo Rodriguez and Nicole Davis. Nic was an amazing young soul. He was just infectious everywhere he went, no matter who was around, including family, friends, strangers, etc. When he walked in a room, everyone immediately smiled because that was what he did, 24/7, smile, and it was very contagious. He brought so much joy to his family and to this community. He was so loved by many, as we have seen on TV and social media. He definitely left his mark on everyone and everything around him. We just want everyone to remember him as he was before he left this temporary home and now resides in his forever home with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Nicolas is survived by his father, Rodrigo Rodriguez; his mother, Nicole Davis; his grandmothers, Carol Conner and Bertolda Rodriguez; his brothers, Alex Rodriguez, Austin Smith, and King Motley; his sisters, Erika Rodriguez, Raven Motley, Mia Motley, Mazi Motley, Sabrina Rodriguez, and Aleesya Rodriguez; his uncles, Juventino Rodriguez, Onorio Rodriguez, Victor Rodriguez, and Paulino Rodriguez; and many, many cousins, who he truly loved.
