Paul Davila Jr, 72 years old of Austin, Texas passed away on June 26, 2020. He was born in Mathis, Texas on October 6, 1947 and graduated from Mathis High School in 1967. He was a member of St. Catherine of Sienna Catholic Church in Austin, Texas.

He married our beloved mother Lupe Mireles Davila on February 1, 1969. The unconditional love he shared for his wife, his children, his grandchildren and his great-grandchildren will be cherished forever. He was and still is the most amazing Dad and “POPO” that we could ever ask for.

Our Dad had an outstanding sales career for 50 years with American National Insurance Company. He always worked hard to be the best he could and to provide for his family no matter what it took. His days were long and his nights were longer, but he was always there for his clients no matter how late it was. He was Top Salesman and enjoyed so many trips that showed his accomplishments of being the best. He never gave up and taught us to be respectful, kind and to work through adversity because our world was changing everyday. He had many acquaintances, friends and best friends for life. His time with American National will be remembered through his accomplishments, awards, early meetings, trips and being the best Top Salesman anyone could ever ask for.

He enjoyed his cowboy movies, game shows, fishing, watching his Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorn football and most of all traveling the globe with his late wife, our mom, Lupe M. Davila. He enjoyed spending the time with his friends of many many years whether it was on a trip or just having a taco and a cup of coffee.

Our beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather impacted so many lives with his compassion, dedication, and love for his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, his clients, and his best friends of many years We will miss his smile, wittiness, his jokes, his long stories, his laughter, his voice and his great big bear hugs and kisses.

Uncle Paul, I will always remember how you would tell me “ Kriselda, when you going to take me to a UT football game!” I think every time I saw you, you asked. I finally got us some awesome 50 yard line third row seats. I went to go pick you up and you said ohh man i can’t go it’s a long walk but here Mark will go with you. I’ll never forget the memories I shared with you. Uncle Paul, I love you and miss you very much.

Paul enjoyed his life with close family and friends by going camping, making bbq, going to reunions and parties. He was very social and fun to be around. He loved to dance, he will be with his Lupe now. May God bless them and may they both Rest In Peace.

Roseanne, please know our prayers are with you at this time. Although I did not know your Dad, I know you and love you. I also know you loved your Father very much and took good care of him and for that I am sure he loved you so ,so much. It is not easy losing our Dad (or Mom) but God is good to let see glimpses of them throughout the days to come. I pray for comfort for you and I will be remembering you, your Dad and family in my Rosaries.

J.P., Rosanne, Mark, Stephanie and Laura,

I loved your dad. He always made me feel so welcome in your home and whenever I would see him around Austin.

One of my favorite memories is when your dad, your mom, my dad and I all traveled to Norway in 2005 for an American National top sales awards trip. He would make us all laugh while posing with fancy statues, he and your mom had this fun banter, and him and my dad had lots of celebrating with drinks. He mad me laugh a lot, and was always making everyone feel included.

I hope you are comforted in knowing he is with your mom/momo now. She will help to guide him in this next chapter. I do believe both your dad/popo and mom/momo are watching down on you all. Sending you all my condolences.
