It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Tulsa County Deputy Santiago Rodriguez, who passed away unexpectedly this morning following a medical emergency that occurred while he was off duty.
Deputy Rodriguez was 40 years old. He had been a Deputy at the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office for 14 years. Over the court of his career, Rodriguez received letters of accommodation for his work as a Deputy at the Tulsa County Courthouse. He lived a career of service, not only to the citizens of Tulsa County, but also to his country, through his time as a member of the Navy Reserve.
Dep. Rodriguez was a loving father to his four children. He will be greatly missed by all of his coworkers and friends here at the Sheriff’s Office.
Funeral services are pending.
