Frank Puente, Jr., son of Mary Flores (Frank) and Frank Puente was born on February 28, 1933 in Houston, TX. On July 26, 2020 at the age of 88, Frank Jr. graduated to Heaven peacefully with his loving family by his side.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 63 years, Eloise, his mother and father and his sister Lollie Galvan. He is survived by sister Barbara Campos (John). His children - Vivian Hernandez (Hector); Kenneth Puente, (Veronica); Beatrice Mata (Robert); Margaret Castellano and Roland Puente; Grand Children, Serena, Samantha, Sarah, Sophia, Amanda, Eric, Anthony, Melinna, Jacob Matthew, Payton and Hannah. Great Grand Children, Caleb, Julianna, Jacob, Maximilian, Kaylie, Jay, Faith, Danny, Lori, Ella Faye, and Sora. Numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Frank loved his FAMILY and his Astros, He had a HEART of GOLD, always put God first, and thanked Him for his many BLESSINGS. He was always there to greet you with life advice and blessings in your travels. He enjoyed watching his classic movies and the Astros and also made sure the yard was tended to, something that gave him great joy.

Frank and Eloise had a LOVE like no other. They were role models of what unconditional love really means. His face always expressed pure joy when he saw all that were a part of his heart. Oh, what a legacy of love they began!

Frank Puente Jr., a man of few words, yet much was said. Our father will forever be remembered as a man of great wisdom. A loving brother, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and great provider.

Frank will be dearly missed by all but he is with Our Heavenly Father, pain free and dancing with his beautiful wife, Eloise, as the Angels play “Could I have this dance”. This is not a good-by but an “Until we meet again”.

With much love and respect, your loving family

So today we begin our journey to say our final earthly goodbyes to a man that helped our dear Eloise create a legacy of their own.
With so much unconditional love and compassion and respect and humor and tenacity, this man held his family together. He taught us sooo much that the conversations would never end.
For me, my parents went home to the Lord during my very early years and he and his family accepted me as their own. As one who belonged in his heart. And as my own children came into the world he scooped them up and called them his babies, too.
Grandpa Frank - you showed me what “Dad” truly means. You showed me that hard work is the only thing there is. And you never let me give up on myself and my dreams. But most of all you showed pure joy when we arrived. What more could we ask for.
Tell Grandma Eloise we love and miss her and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me a place to be able to call home.
I love you with all my heart, Mom and Dad.
