Rodney Lee Zamora was born May 31, 1979, in Alamogordo, New Mexico, to Nazario and MaryLee Zamora. He passed away, Friday, November 27, 2020, at Lincoln County Medical Center. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his wife, Andrea Wyatt Zamora, sons Orion and Deven, and daughter Maddie, his father and mother in-law Joel and Becky (Verdugo) Wyatt, brother-in-law Joel (Diem) Wyatt, Jr, of Monroe, Washington, brothers Benny Zamora of Carrizozo, NM, and Adam (Alicia) Zamora of Corona, NM, and sister Darlene Fernandez of Carrizozo, NM.

Rodney is preceded in death by his Grandmother “Mo” Virginia Jaurequi.
All who knew Rodney saw his deep love for Andrea and his children, his love for his parents, extended family and friends, and his servant’s heart. His joy was found in spending time with his family, working on projects, coaching little league baseball and attending his children’s sports and school events, faithfully helping his and Andrea’s parents for whatever was needed, helping out a friend, the community, the church, or a stranger just because someone or something needed a helping hand, and working with the Carrizozo Volunteer Fire Department tirelessly for twenty-three years. Rod answered the call to service freely, quietly, humbly, never looking for thanks or praise, or for anything in return. He was happiest when he was able to serve others. He truly lived a life that exemplified the teachings of Christ. He left this earth much too soon, but we know the love that comes from God transcends all time and space. Christ defeated the grave, and our love keeps us forever connected until we meet again.
Rosary and Funeral services will be held at St. Rita Catholic Church in Carrizozo, NM on Saturday, December 19, 2020. Graveside services at Our Lady of Guadalupe Cemetery will immediately follow.
Pallbearers: Orion Wyatt, Deven Zamora, Benny Zamora, Adam Zamora, Rory Zamora, Xavier Zamora and LeeRoy Zamora Jr.
