Memorial Service Plans Announced For Local Housing Advocate

Posted on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 10:58am


Memorial service plans have been announced for a community leader who was a tireless advocate for affordable housing in Ventura County.

Rodney Fernandez was one of the founders of the Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation, the three decade old organization which has created more than 1500 housing units in the region.

The 68 year old man died last Wednesday.  Fernandez retired about two years ago, and had been in failing health for some time.

Services will be at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Santa Paula, with a rosary at 7:30 Friday night, and a funeral mass at 10 a.m. Saturday.
