Friends of Rodriguez said he was a nice man who owned a barbershop in Revere. They said fighting was never in his character.

“It’s sad that somebody so good and so humble is gone,” said Juan Santa, who owns a barbershop across the street from Rodriguez’s. “He was a nice guy, humble, and you know it was pretty shocking to know that happened to him because he doesn’t deserve that.”
