Michael Rodarte
Mar 16, 1977 - Dec 21, 2013
Resident of Phoenix, AZ, San Jose and San Diego

"It is not the years in your life but the life in your years that count."

While Michael David Rodarte only spent 36 short years finding adventure in life, he truly lived every moment to the fullest. An avid outdoors man, Michael hiked his way to heaven on December 21, 2013.

Mike was graduate of Gunderson High School '96 and resided in Phoenix, Arizona and formerly of San Diego and San Jose. David and Mary Rodarte, San Jose, sister, Renee De La Cruz and husband John, niece Kayla, and godson Isaac De La Cruz surrounded with family and amazing friends will never forget Mike's fun spirit, love of all things in nature and infectious smile. "Heaven sure must have saved a good pair of wings for Michael" a friend said.

Mike will be interred at Los Gatos Memorial Park in a private family ceremony. Plans for a remembrance event are in progress. In lieu of flowers, donations can be in Michael's name to Hospice of the Valley, 4850 Union Avenue, San Jose, CA 95124.
