         WHEREAS, The thousands of deaths caused by COVID-19 in Texas
  have created a tremendous void in families, communities, and
  workplaces throughout the state; among those who lost their lives
  in the pandemic was Rodrick L. Rodgers, a dedicated and highly
  respected employee of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, who
  passed away on November 11, 2020, at the age of 45; and
         WHEREAS, Officer Rodgers was a 10-year TDCJ veteran and
  served as the food services manager at the Eastham Unit in Lovelady;
  his love of cooking was demonstrated both on and off the job; he
  especially delighted in barbecuing, and he prepared meals for a
  range of special events, including community outings and
  fundraisers and his popular Super Bowl parties; everything he did
  was informed by his deep religious faith, and he considered his
  wife, his children, and his stepchildren to be his greatest
  blessings; in the workplace, he was widely respected by his
  coworkers, who appreciated his humility and kindness, as well as
  the deep interest he took in the well-being of everyone around him;
         WHEREAS, Rodrick Rodgers faithfully and ably performed his
  duties throughout his tenure with the Texas Department of Criminal
  Justice, and he will long be remembered with great admiration by all
  who were privileged to know him; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 87th Texas
  Legislature, 1st Called Session, hereby pay tribute to the life of
  Rodrick L. Rodgers and extend deepest sympathy to his family,
  friends, and colleagues; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for his family and that when the Texas House of
  Representatives adjourns this day, it do so in memory of Rodrick L.
