God’s Garden

God looked around His garden, and He found an empty place. And then He looked down upon the earth, and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s Garden must be beautiful. He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb, so He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered, “Peace be thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you. But you didn’t go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

He always put himself last. Was a hardworking, humble man and loving and adoring father. Best quality he possessed was prioritizing people over material things.

If you knew him as Edward, you know him from childhood and know how adventurous, fun, kind, giving, and pure of a heart he had.

Preciado

Erik Joel Preciado was born on August 26,2000 in San Antonio Texas to his mother, Maribel Moreno. Erik gained his wings on August 24,2022, just two days before his 22nd birthday.

Erik is preceded in death by his father Noel Dominguez who defined that it is not blood that bonds us, but rather unconditional love, maternal grandparents Felipe and Juanita Moreno, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He is survived by his loving mother Maribel Moreno, older brother Frank Puente(Destinie), younger brother Noah Dominguez, niece Emery, true love and fiancé Kayla Campos, aunts, uncles, numerous cousins and friends and last but not least his fur babies, cats Pickle and Tuna. Anyone who knew Erik would easily say that he was unapologetically himself, always drumming to the beat of his own tune. Erik was someone that must’ve lived a thousand years before by the “old soul” he had and his exquisite taste in music. He loved his family and Kayla, had recently gone back to college and was excited for future endeavors. Erik’s dream was to earn a degree in behavioral psychology and someday work with youth. He believed through his experiences he could make all the difference in children that may be going down the same path he was once on. They say only the good die young, we say legends never fade. Erik’s death does not define his legacy, he will always live on in the wind, the rustling of the leaves, in every song he loved and hummed to, but most importantly in our hearts with the memories we collectively share. On behalf of the family, we want to thank everyone for their support during this trying time.

Zuniga

Sergio Antonio Zuñiga was born on September 17th, 1995 and was called to be with the Lord on June 26th, 2022.

Sergio was a South Side Native. The youngest of the Zuñiga Family. Son to Rafael H. Zuniga Sr and Maria E. Zuniga (RIP) and brother to Susana C. Flores, Rafael H. Zuniga Jr.; Erasmo E. Zuniga and Angel U. Zuniga. He went to Pierce Elementary and graduated from South Side High School. He was an athlete and a great student. After graduating, Sergio went to the US Marine Corps and came home to pursue a career in the "rough neck" field of welding by going to STVT- HE WAS GREAT AT IT!

Sergio's life was complete when he had his son Josiah! He was the love of his life and the most wonderful precious thing that could have come to him. You could see it every time he was with him. They were best buds and will always be together in this life and the next. Sergio made the best life possible for everyone that knew him. With his BIG smile and LOVING personality, Sergio left a mark everywhere he went. He was a great son, a loving brother, a wonderful father and an irreplaceable friend. There was not a day that went by that he did not light up every room or group he was in. His smile was contagious, and his spirit was warm and loving. Sergio loved everyone and was very fun and energetic. He was loved by everyone and had no issues with trying to make you laugh and give you some sarcasm.

Sergio will be missed more than words can say and actions can show. He left us too soon, but he will NOT be forgotten- someone like him cannot be. His spirit will live on through his father, his brothers, his sister and his son. He will continue to live in our hearts and our souls every day. We will honor him by keeping our spirits alive in his absence because we all know that is what he would have wanted. With a heavy heart we honor him today not with a simple "goodbye!" but with a heartfelt "See you soon, brother!"

Rey was very funny and crazy and he can light up your heart or put a smile on your face. He left us unexpectedly but he will be in our Heart’s FOREVER. God needed a soul to take in his garden: God saw Rey getting tired and so he put his arms around Rey and whispered “Come with Me” so tears filled in his eyes I watched him suffer and fade away. Although we loved him deeply, we couldn’t make him stay. A Golden Heart stopped beating hard, working hand’s put to rest. God broke our Hearts to prove to the US … That he only takes the very best to his Kingdom. RIP Rey Rey.

He saw the road was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered, "Peace be thine." It broke our hearts to lose you.

11/25/1920-5/26/2022

Margarita V. Luna left this world to enter the gates of heaven on May 26, 2022. The Lord allowed her to pass peacefully. Her passing is not to be a sad occasion as she was blessed to live 101 years, always thanking God for another day and still possessing her cognitive ability.

Margarita was a unique and unusual woman living in the early 1900’s. Her journey through life was not always easy, as she dealt with much resistance being a single woman with children. She was resilient and embraced all change that each decade brought. She never gave up when things were tough, worked hard and instilled that virtue to her children. Margarita was a woman who could truly say, (in our modern day), “I’ve lived a life-time…seen and been through it all!”

After living in Florida for many years, Margarita returned back to her hometown of San Antonio, TX and stayed with family and friends, until moving into her own apartment at a Senior facility. She often shared her adventures in life that would make us all blush and laugh.

Margarita loved to sing and dance. Growing up, Margarita and her sister Camilla were known to sing together all of the time. Right before her passing, when she could still speak, the caregivers remember her singing to them. Towards the end of her life, when asked how she was doing each day, she’d say, “I’m doing good, thanks to my God!” Margarita was a strong natured woman who held her own to the very end. The best things about her were that she always had her own view on things, was generally a happy person, and had a sense of humor.

Margarita joins her son, Antonio V. Luna, her parents, Cruz Reyes and Miguel Valdez, along with sister, Camilla Cruz (Jose) in heaven. She is survived by her daughter, Norma Hause, her grandson, Russell Hause, niece and goddaughter, Evangelina Cruz Sanchez (Jesus), niece, Yolanda Cruz, numerous grandnieces, grandnephews, and lifelong friend, Sandy Martinez.

Margarita also leaves behind caregivers who she considered family: Juanita Rocha, Maria Cazares, Counsella M. Ewell.

A Memorial Service will begin on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at 1:30pm at Delgado Funeral Home (2200 W. Martin St, San Antonio, Texas 78207) with a Rosary recited at 2:00pm. Service will conclude at 3:30pm.

Gallardo

Alicia (Licha) Gallardo was born in 1934 in Laredo, TX and died peacefully in her home on June 1, 2022 at the age of 87. She was preceded in death by her father and mother Vicente and Antonia M, her brothers, Vicente Jr. (Ernestina) and Roberto (Isabel), nephews Vincent J and Bobby Gallardo.

She is survived by her sister Antonia (Toni) Gallardo as well as by her niece and nephews, Anna Lupita Moreno (Adrian), Oscar Gallardo (Mari) and Paul Gallardo (Sylvia), Niece in law Teresa Gallardo widow of nephew Vincent J Gallardo. Other family includes grand nieces and nephews and great grand nieces and nephews, as well as cousins and her Goddaughter Raquel Martinez.

Alicia fought a valiant battle with Parkinson's for 27 years. It is a disease that progresses in time and each stage presents more mobility challenges. Alicia met those challenges with determination and grit. She always made sure she looked her best from head to toe with shoes and purse to match.

A devotee of St Jude, there would always be Church visits on her many travels to different cities. When long distance travel was no longer possible, a trip downtown to the River Walk was an acceptable option.

There are so many people to thank during the last two decades. Anna would spend time with her on Thursday evenings for many months, Marisla became her caregiver three days a week in the early stages of her illness and also near the end. Joshua Gallardo and his mom Teresa were there at late night Emergency Room visits. Neighbors John and Nellie Rodriguez were always at our side taking care of us. Ruby Covarubias, one of her caregivers and also a friend to Alicia made sure her nails were always in top shape.

At her last stage, Alicia was spiritually supported by the thoughts and prayers of family and friends, who some lovingly called her "Ms Licha". She was attended to by the wonderful staff of Entrust Hospice of San Antonio. Also in assistance were Axis Home Health, Charles R Cervantes, Jr MD, and his friendly and helpful staff. We have much gratitude to Maria Victoria Alvarez, MD, her Neurologist that helped us navigate through her symptoms for many years and fondly referred to us as "the sisters".

Visitation will begin on Friday, June 10, 2022 at 8:30am at Delgado Funeral Home (2200 W. Martin St, San Antonio, Texas 78207). Funeral Procession will depart at 9:30am for a 10:00am Mass at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church ( 617 S. Santa Rosa, San Antonio, 78204 ). Interment to follow at San Fernando Cemetery II.

Flores

Alejandro “Alex” Roberto Flores II, 42, was born August 7, 1979.

Alex went on ahead of those he loved to be with God on April 22, 2022.

Alex is survived by his mother and father Emilia Gomez Flores & Alejandro Roberto Flores; brothers Guillermo, Gerardo, Oscar, & Adalberto Flores; sister Daisy Flores; and his daughters Abegail, Alexandria, and Selena Flores.

He was known by different names to those he chose to include in his life. Whether you knew him as Alex, Beto, BA, Bro, Dad, or KKay to his “boys”..., he remained a sincere man who strove to be there for those he loved. He enjoyed his life as much as possible, at every turn he could, and lived it as he chose. Always content to enjoy some free time to just lounge around and chill, Alex was a passive and respectful soul, but he was not afraid to tell you his true thoughts. Like many others, Alex had his favorite sports teams, but he loved the San Antonio Spurs to the same degree that he loved his hometown of San Antonio.

Alex was a caring father who cherished his daughters more than they will know. His thoughts were always with them and he took every opportunity to let others know how much they meant to him.

Alex was a loving son who, despite his wild rebellious years in his youth, loved his mother and father who brought him into this world. He adored his mother and always showed his love for her in the best ways that he could so she would not forget.

With his siblings he was their “partner in crime” to some, an attentive ear who listened to others, a best friend, but always a kind brother who made it a point to say “I love you, Bro” with a hug before he left.

To their kids, he was a loving uncle, always asking about their well being. Always trying to help his nieces and nephews make better choices.

He wanted the best for his family. All of his family. And he was always looking to protect those for whom he cared.Alex was not perfect, but we loved him as he was because he was ours. There will be no other like him and he is missed dearly by his family, friends, and loved ones.

May he rest in peace and live on in our hearts and memories.

God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.

Sanchez, Lupe Sanchez (Sister in Law), Laura Rivera (Sister), Edwin Claudio, Sr. (Brother), Jesus Perez, Jr. (Brother) and Christine (wife), Rosizela Jordan (Sister) and Tony (husband), Gabriel L. Perez (Brother) and Elida (wife), Moses P. Perez (Brother), and Roger Sanchez (Brother) and Teri (wife). Angelo has no children, but was loved by all his nephews and nieces: Mario, Andres, Laurie, Sinnae, Isiah, Edwin Jr., Samuel, David, Moses, Ana Alicia, Bianca, Dylan, Daniel, Isabella, Gabriel, Alison, Briana, Trevor, Luke, Jessica and Kyle.

Angelo was an international world traveler. His travels led him as far away as the Great Wall of China, London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Barcelona, Puerto Rico, and several cities in Canada and in Mexico. Angelo was an avid walker. He walked everywhere. Angelo loved a great party or fiesta. When he was at Mardi Gras he was on top of the world.

Angelo retired as a Para-professional with SAISD. He spent many years at Rhodes Middle School. Post retirement Angelo went on to become a substitute teacher where he continued educating young children. He also served more than 22 years with the Natatorium gaining the trust and love for the West Side community. Wherever Angelo went he always ran into his former students and the love they gave back to him showed how much he cared for them as well. The bond and love portrayed by an instant run in with a former student showed how grateful they were to Angelo and the many things he did for each individual student and their families. His loving legacy will live on through the children he molded throughout the years.

Angelo was a fighter. He fought hard trying to beat this cancer. Our hearts are shattered because he is gone, but we will love him every day. Angelo is with our sister Patricia and his grandmother Maria. They both had a strong influence with Angelo and are all joined in Heaven. We are thankful for the love and support the family and his friends have given him. In God’s eyes love is bigger than anything in its way. We will continue being a family as one.

Martinez

Ruben M. Martinez was born in Hidalgo County on May 27, 1949 and was called to be with the Lord on April 1, 2022 at the age of 72. He passed peacefully in the comfort of his home while surrounded by his loved ones.

Ruben was born in South Texas but raised in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon Mexico. As the older sibling of the family, he took on odd jobs and became skilled at doing many trades. He eventually decided to leave high school to work full time so he could provide for his mother, stepfather, and siblings.

At 18 years old, he headed north and ended up in San Antonio, TX. At his time of arrival, he did not know anyone but was excited to start a new life and adventure in the United States. He ended up working and renting an apartment on City Street in the King William Historical District from Mr. and Mrs. Richard Garza.

After settling in and saving some money, Ruben decided that he wanted to purchase a house. He went for a walk down Guenther Street, “house hunting”, and ran into a home that caught his eye. He asked a gentleman what he needed to purchase the house and he replied with, “MONEY”. Ruben was excited and said, “I have that covered” in his own broken English vocabulary. The rest is history, in 1968, he ended up purchasing the home, bringing his bride from Mexico, and started a family.

Ruben was a jack of all trades and master of none. We all know him as “The Inventor” because there was a specific way to fix things and then there was “his way”. He loved to make jokes, gave nicknames to everyone, and LOVED his Futbol.

He always followed worldwide soccer but loved his Tigres and Rayados from Monterrey. Yes, these two teams were rivals, but he never chose a side to gratify his split family/rival siblings.

During his younger years he would make many trips to Monterrey, MX to spend the summer and holidays with his mother, stepfather, and siblings.
He would take his family to the rivers on the weekends, BBQ with his friends, and just enjoy life to the fullest.

Later in life, he took care of his grandchildren, went to their games, assisted his children when called upon, traveled to many American Football (Cowboys and Longhorn) and World Soccer Qualifier games.

Ultimately in these last few years, he essentially resided in his homeland of Monterrey, Mexico where he loved to be.

He was preceded in death by his mother: Victoria Moreno, Stepfather: Antonio Alvarez Rodriguez, and his lovely wife: Rosa Maria Martinez.

Ruben is survived by his children and spouse: Ruben Martinez Jr (Ana Maria), Gerardo Martinez (Jennifer America), Deyanira Orozco (Michael), Denise Gomez (Joe), Obdulia Martinez (Anna), Marlene Ramirez (Rene). 14 grandchildren: Nico, Rosa, Sabrina, Alexandria, Gerardo Jr, Anthony, Maddox, Misael, Mark, Marissa, Mariah, Julia, Alijah, Amerie, and 2 great grandchildren Aurora Luna and Nico Andres. Ruben is also survived by two brothers (Uncle James, Tio Tono), three sisters (Tia Nora, Tia Cony, y Tia Rosa), and many family members that primarily reside in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon but are throughout Mexico.

Visitation will begin on Thursday, April 21, 2022 at 4:00pm at Delgado Funeral Home (2200 W. Martin St, San Antonio, Texas 78207) with a Rosary recited at 7:00pm. The Funeral Home will open at 8:30am on Friday, April 22, 2022. Funeral procession will depart at 9:30am for a 10:00 am Mass at St. Jude Catholic Church.

What a joker

Jack of all trades, master of none

Carrillo

Stephanie Casillas Carrillo, 52, of San Antonio, Texas, passed away on Sunday February 13, 2022, after complications due to COVID. A native of San Antonio, she was a big-hearted, fun-loving, and fiercely loyal person whose family and friends came first, most importantly, her daughter, Kathrine Harley Carrillo. She came from a large family, so even though she was an only child, she had siblings in the aunts and cousins who were close to her own age. And having been raised in her grandparents’ home, she was another sister and an integral part of the Figueroa family. As a tribute to her late mother Belinda Figueroa Rischner, she stayed connected to all aunts, uncles and cousins living in and outside of Texas. She became the glue in the family, keeping all members abreast of the other’s wellbeing.

Much like her late mother, she didn’t sugarcoat whatever was on her mind. Those who knew her from Connell Middle School or Phillis Wheatley High School would agree that she didn’t mince words. Even if she came off as tough, she was a truly kind and generous person who would rally in a moment's notice to lend a helping hand. Whether it was helping a friend move into a new apartment or caring for an ailing family member she was there when needed most. She was caregiver to her mother Belinda, husband Santos Carrillo, mother-in-law Blanca Carrillo and most recently her uncle Raymond Figueroa prior to their passing. She would often say this was her purpose in life and what she was meant to do.

The one area where she was unapologetically fierce, was when it came to protecting her daughter Kathrine Carrillo whom she adored. She was willing to fight tooth and nail like a lioness protecting her cub if need be. Kathrine, known as Harley to the family, was the apple of Stephanie and her late husband Santos’ eye. Cherished above all others, she will eternally be their pride and joy.

Stephanie is survived by her daughter Kathrine Harley Carrillo, brother-in-law Walter Carrillo (Rosamaria), uncles Robert Figueroa (Paula) and Gilbert Figueroa (Mary Ellen); aunts Mary Rose Elizondo (Mando), Diana Figueroa, Elizabeth Hernandez (Frank) and Denise Figueroa (Melisa) and countless cousins. She was also preceded in death by her father-in-law Osbaldo M. Carrillo, grandparents Amelia and Agapito Figueroa, aunts and uncles Hope Barrera (Ernest), Alma Henderson (Bob), Albert M. Figueroa, and Frank Figueroa (Pam).

She will be dearly missed by many longtime friends who were part of the extended family. And while Stephanie is no longer physically with us, what will always remain are memories of her larger-than-life personality and her infectious laughter.

Due to current limitations on group size caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is encouraged to wear a mask. Family and friends may rotate in and out and allow others to enter. Please be cautious of the health and safety of others. No food or drinks allowed inside.

Please join us to bid farewell to our beloved Stephanie on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, between 9 a.m. - 12 noon at Delgado Funeral Home, 2200 W. Martin Street, San Antonio, Texas, 78207.

Teresa Ledesma Garza

October 10,1947 - December 8, 2021

It has been said that good things come in small packages. This statement could not be more true about momma bear. Our beloved warrior queen stood at a mighty 4 foot 7 inches and weighed in at a whopping 80 pounds, soaking wet. However, don't let her petite stature fool you, she was a firecracker and an amazingly strong fighter. She had a heart of gold and a servant spirit. This is her story...

In the Spinach Capital of the World, Crystal City, on the tenth day of October in 1947, Jose and Maria Ledesma welcomed their first of ten children, Teresa. To some she was known as Teresita to others it was Terry, with a Y. She eventually made up the the better half of the power house known as TnT (Tony and Terry Garza).

After graduation from high school she moved to San Antonio where she met her husband and started her family. She spent many years helping with decorations and events at church. When her children started school she went on to help at the elementary school they attended. She became a member of the parent teacher association where her efforts were recognized and lead to a full time position with the school. She spent many years as a community liason working closely with parents and lending helping hands to teachers. Eventually she moved on to become a paraprofessional teachers aide with the BIC unit. This is where her nurturing spirit flourished as she was able to help with teaching and shower her students with love and affection.

Mom was a go getter who spent endless hours finding ways to help provide for her family. Yet she always made time to be present in their every day life routines. At our swim competitons, she planted a root and stayed all day even if we only swam one event. For home competitions she managed the best consession stand and provided the yummiest food choices. She always made sure to take a quick break to see us swim. She was the loudest and most supportive fan we had.

To know Terry, is to love her. Her life was spent moving. Always moving forward. Living for her children and their children and so on. Family first. Always. In the good times and especially in the bad times, look for the silver linings and do not ever lose sight of the good in people. Her legacy will live on in those she blessed with her presence.

On December 8, 2021, she passed away peacefully in her sleep. She is preceded in death by her loving parents Jose and Maria Ledesma, her sister Amanda, and her endeared son, Anthony. She is survived by her husband, Antonio (Tony) Garza. Her children (and spouses): Anna (Chris), Jennifer (Gerardo), and Angel (Sarah). Her grandchildren: Crystal, Jose, Alexandria, Christian, Skylar, Tylar, June Bug, Milagros, Serafina, and Adonias. Her great grandchildren Gianna, Zain, Sophia, Ethan, Jose (BB), Noa, and Gracie.

Celebration of life will commence on Monday, January 3, 2022 at Delgado Funeral Home (2200 W. Martin St, San Antonio, Texas 78207). Visitation will begin at 4:00pm-9:00pm with a Prayer Service: 7:00pm. The Funeral Home will open at 8:30am-10:30am on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 with Mariachi serenade @ 10:30am.

Sergio was also an amazing handyman and could often be found doing work around the house, from repainting the front porch chairs to patching the roof after a storm. He tried to share this knowledge with his children and grandchildren any chance he could. When he wasn’t home working around the house, you could also find him fishing or hanging out with his friends at their neighborhood spot. Anyone who knew Sergio knew that he was a hard-working man that was determined to provide for his family.

Sergio was predeceased by his parents, Ernesto Lopez and Asencion Garcia, and his brother Ernesto Lopez.

He is survived by his loving wife, Maria Lopez; 3 sons Sergio Lopez, Jose Manuel Lopez, and Rudy (Massie) Lopez; 3 grandchildren, Joey Lopez, Sergio Lopez, and Rudy Lopez; 3 brothers Abran Garcia, Manuel Lopez, and Valentin Lopez; 3 sisters Yolanda Lopez, Guadalupe Lopez, and Alicia Lopez.

Cardenas

October 28th, 1933- October 31, 2021

Thought of Dora:

Aurora Alvarez Cardenas was a protective mother, and supportive grandmother and great grandmother. She left her children the legacy and ethic of a hard day’s work, to receive well-earned pay. She was always there for us, to support our dreams, and achievements.

She loved family gatherings where all her family was present, enjoying a good conversation and good food. She loved to dance, with her later husband “ Dan the Man” and teaching her children how to polka, Cumbias, and the Lindy Hop.

Aurora’s love of plants and fruit trees, grown from seeds she collected. This activity kept her close to mother earth. In the morning you could see her garden. She kept a little pocket knife prepared to make cuttings where ever; she would encounter a desired species toad to her horticultural collection. Most of her garden survived the 2021 San Antonino Blizzard, and is still blooming as a living memorial to her life (Anecdote: The grass is green where you water is.) Aurora, Ama, Mom, Grandma, you will be missed yet never forgotten, peace be with you, and may perpetual light shine upon you.

Petra M. Lomas

29 June 1935 – 20 November 2021

The name Petra means stone or rock and that’s exactly what my mother was. Her strong character and unmoving will had a direct impact on the lives of her eight children. She pushed everyone to excel at whatever path we chose and always encouraged everyone with love and determination. She had a hard childhood and did not finish elementary school. She, however, knew what she wanted out of life; for her children to have a better life than she did. The turning point in her life happened when she met Jesus. She became a woman of God, a prayer warrior and In spite of limited means, she was generous and always helped others throughout her life. She chose to follow God because she wanted her children to know Him and they did. She was truly a matriarch that loved everyone around her. She never hesitated to help, lift, encourage or love anyone. Her warm smile always made our world right. She is survived by 7 children, 15 grandchildren and 32 great grandchildren. Her absence leaves a huge void in her family. While we miss her it isn’t without hope. So we don't say Adios but Hasta Luego Ama.

When he started to lose his sight, he loved sitting on the front porch listening to his Tejano music on his IPad and every now and then drinking the occasional “Nuevo Look”, (Bud Light) as he called it. He enjoyed conversations on the phone with his sisters and sometimes with his good friend, Mr. Cardenas who he may have just seen minutes earlier. He often joked with his granddaughters, Crystal, and Erica, always making them laugh. They were his pride and joy.

Fidel and Delia met while working at Centeno Grocery store. They described their meeting, as

“love at first sight”. They eloped on September 6, 1957. They had 4 children, Reynaldo, RoseMary, Henry and Alice Gonzales, 3 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. They both worked tirelessly to give their children what they needed including a home and loving support throughout the years.

Fidel and Delia spent their retirement years together, mostly in their home. They enjoyed

watching television shows, Spurs games, the Dallas Cowboys, Jeopardy, novellas and the daily

news. Fidel always gave his family notice of the weather forecast, “Bill Taylor told me it’s going

to rain, be careful”. They could always count on their dad to watch out for their safety no matter

how old they were. Their love of their family was most important.

They delighted in having their grandchildren and great grandchildren at their home. Walking into their home you were always greeted and offered food or a drink by both of them.They went out of their way to make you feel comfortable in their home. They always made sure to ask about family members by name and gave their blessings when you left their home. Delia was the cook in the house and was known by many to make the best Mexican rice, chicken mole and her famous crispy tacos! Fidel enjoyed every bit of it. Just a few short months ago their children were able to give their parents a wonderful gift. They helped remodel their home room by room. Fidel and Delia were beyond excited to have this beautiful home. It was such a blessing to them.They were married for 64 years, separated by only a few days in death, and will now be together in Heaven for eternity..

Visitation will begin on Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 4:00pm at Delgado Funeral Home (2200 W. Martin St, San Antonio, Texas 78207) with a Rosary at 7:00pm.

Gonzalez

Delia Gonzales entered into peaceful, eternal rest on Monday, September 20, 2021 surrounded

by her children and loved ones. Delia was born on March 24, 1936 in Cotulla, Tx. She was the eldest daughter of 11 children born to Olivia C. Sanchez and Gregorio Sanchez.

She is preceded in death by her son, Reynaldo Gonzales, mother, Olivia Sanchez, and father,

Gregorio Sanchez, brothers Fernando Sanchez, Margarito Sanchez, Abel Sanchez, and Ramon

Sanchez.

Survived by her children, RoseMary Rodriguez, Henry Gonzales, and Alice Gonzales, grandchildren Crystal Garcia, Erica Rodriguez and Rey Gonzales, Jr., and great-grandchildren. Her husband and father of her children, Fidel Gonzalez, passed away four days after her passing.

Growing up, Delia enjoyed school but discontinued her studies to begin working in order to help

her parents. Her siblings recall that she bought them groceries and clothes for school with every paycheck. Her Christmas gifts were always so very special to them.

Delia worked for over 30 years as a cashier at Centeno's and Handy Andy. She was dedicated to her job and worked long hours to help provide for her family. Delia had a few interests that were evident to anyone who knew her. She loved reading. If you bought her a book, she would

find time to read it, and might even read it a second time. She enjoyed fiction, romance novels,

and her bible. She also loved to iron (yes, iron!) and have an occasional margarita at her favorite restaurant, Cheddars, with her daughters and family members. She also loved listening to Tejano music in her home and cooking a good meal for her loved ones. Delia loved her family with every part of her being. Even though she was the most reserved of the eleven, she loved to visit with her brothers and sisters as often as possible, reminisce about the old days, and have some great laughs. It was a joy to see her laugh. Without a doubt, Delia’s love of God and her faithfulness were evident throughout her life. She was an incredibly devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her love of family was immeasurable. Her family was her strength and her motivation for her hard work, and the consistent love she shared with them.

She was deeply loved and will be dearly missed by her children, brothers and sisters, nieces

and nephews. Fidel and Delia met while working at Centeno Grocery store. They described their meeting, as “love at first sight”. They eloped on September 6, 1957. They had 4 children, Reynaldo,

RoseMary, Henry and Alice Gonzales, 3 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

Nathan was born in Nuremberg, Germany and his favorite memory as a child was playing with his siblings in the woods. He was a well-known loving, hardworking, compassionate, and loyal man. He worked in the jewelry industry for more than 20 years when he decided to leave and begin his career as a general contractor by opening his own business. He was the handyman that was just a phone call away. He was a man of God and he loved talking to everyone about our Lord Jesus Christ.

Nathan was passionate about cars and karaoke & music. He was always willing to help out and would give his shirt off his back to someone in need. He spent his free time with his children and was always full of jokes (that guy could quote movies).

He worked all his life starting as a child, where he would migrate to the north to work the fields with his family. In his adult life, he was a barber making friends from all walks of life. He was a man of few words but the words he would leave were deep and meaningful. We will miss him and his presence.

Eddie retired from SAWS after 20 years of serving the community. A well known handyman that was only a phone call away.

A Man, always willing to help out family and friends even if it meant getting his new boots dirty.

A Father, with strength strong enough to push through the headwinds and swim through floods at his feet.

A Grandfather, spending all his free time with the kiddos is what he cherished most. I know he'd buy them anything even if he went broke.

A Brother, full of jokes that will get you everytime. Ride after Ride something you can't deny.

An Uncle, who you'd bother but still will make you laugh. Whos door was always open with no questions of the past.

A Son, what we see when we look up at the sky. In other words, that is a blessing in the kingdom he’s arrived.

A Friend, with a heart of happiness that he shared with anyone willing to sit and have a cup of coffee with him.

A Man of his Land, but also a man of the Sea. Whether it be a Fishing Pole or a Tool this was considered a day of Fun.

Eddie is preceded in death by his loving wife, Minnie Elizabeth Valdez, oldest son Jason Allen Valdez, his devoted mother, Micaela Cervantes, and his father, Nasario Valdez.

Eddie is survived by his son, Matthew Edward Valdez, his caring daughter Kristina Michelle Valdez (Jose Castro Jr), 12 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.
