Of Burbank, California and longtime Santa Barbara resident, passed away on November 10, 2013 after a long illness. He passed peacefully at home surrounded by family.
Joseph was a natural-stone contractor and very talented craftsman. His many elegant stone and tile projects grace homes and businesses all over Southern and Central California. He was previously owner/operator of Versa Tile in Palm Springs, California and later a partner in Hollywood Tile, Inc. of Santa Barbara, Ca.
A man of many talents, Joe enjoyed nothing better than gathering his family and friends around a table covered with his own delicious home- made meals. Many happy memories were created around Joe's bountiful dining table. He was a lively and gifted storyteller, a lover of great jazz, a talented and enthusiastic gardener, a voracious reader, and a great friend.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Hope Ross, his father, Joseph Samuel Rodino and his son, Peter Brown. He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Lisa Rodino, his son, Christopher Rodino, his daughter, Rebecca Brown, grandsons Vincent Rodino, Ryan Markwell, Joshua Markwell and granddaughter, Natalia Rodino.
