May 25, 1959 – April 28, 2019
Fidel Albarran, 59, Colorado City, passed away peacefully after a long courageous battle with cancer at his home surrounded by those he loved the most on Sunday, April 28, 2019. He was born on May 25, 1959 in Guana Juato Mexico to Eusebio and Angela Carillo Albarran. Fidel was a hard-working man who loved his God and loved his family. He was a communicant of Saint Ann’s Catholic Church in Colorado City. He was known for his caring, passionate attitude and was the type of person who will give the shirt off his back if someone needed it. He was known as a Jack-of-all-trades because he could do anything and everything that was needed of him. When he first hit Mitchell County he got a job as a roofer, but many that knew him, knew him from his 15 years working for the city of Roscoe. In his spare time he could be seen spending time with his grandchildren who were the motivators for him to fight the good fight against cancer for so many years. You could find him helping them practice Baseball, getting the swimming-pool ready for them, or driving them here and there on the golf cart He also enjoyed watching the Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys play. Fidel is survived by his wife of 34 years, Frances Albarran of Colorado City, by his sons Philip Castro and wife Linzee of Colorado City and Diego Albarran of Colorado City, by a daughter Brenda Martinez and husband Macario of Colorado City, and by his grandchildren Lanee Castro, Mikell Martinez, Hunter Martinez, Novah Martinez, and Elijah Martinez. He is also survived by his brothers Alberto Albarran and wife Esperanza of Mexico, David Albarran and wife Mikaela of Mexico, Eusebio Albarran Jr. and wife Luz of North Carolina, and Alfonzo Albarran of Mexico, and by his sisters Paulina Perez and husband Joe of Snyder, Reina Guerrero and husband Raul of Mexico, Josefina Francisco-Campos of Mexico, Bertha Comacho and husband Luis of Mexico, and Carmen Albarran of Jacksboro. Several nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends are also left behind to cherish his memory. He was preceded in death by his parents and by a grandson Ethan Martinez who passed in 2007.

This is always hard because I remember a lot of things about Fidel, not one big memory however, after more than 35 years I remember a lot of small memories. First thing I would say about Fidel is he never had a bad word to say about anyone, he was a very hard worker and could do so many things without difficulty, he was a good husband, father, grandfather, ect. When visiting he always made you feel at home and I think he was a born outdoors man. I did not spend a lot of time with him but the times we spent was quality time. Whether it was cooking. fishing, boating, ect and even spending time with our God praying together. Fidel will definitely be missed. The last few years has been rough and Fidel was a fighter. I am honored to call him my friend, Uncle, brother in Christ, and family. Rest in Peace Tio... Till we meet again in Paradise...
