Play Tribute Movie

Manuel was the epitome of selfless, hardworking, unconditional love, and above all, strength of a man, husband, father, welo, brother, friend and more. He worked and retired as a Supervisor for the City of Corpus Christi’s Street Department. He enjoyed watching western movies/shows, football, baseball and boxing. He also had his soft side and would join our mom in soap operas and novellas.

In his spare time he enjoyed being with his loved ones speaking about life, singing with his Alicia, playing card games and fishing.

A special thank you from the family to all those who provided care for our father as he lived with Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia.

In memory of our father, and Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, if you wish to, you may wear the color purple for his services.

The day is finally here that we lay your body to rest and have our final moments with you. Your soul left us on November 9, 2020 and I know daddy you’ve been resting in eternal peace with mommy ever since. I wish I could have kept y’all here forever because the pain of losing your parent is unbearable. Take care of my babies in heaven dad. Give mom and Ray hugs and kisses from me. You now are our guardian Angel. You have the best seat in the house watching over your children and grandchildren. Please continue to send me signs that you’re still around. Visit me in my dreams daddy. May you continue resting peacefully in eternal life, until we all meet up again in the gates of heaven. I’ll be looking forward to walk beside you and hear you and mom sing again and “dancing in the sky”. See you tomorrow, after work, after school, beat you, beat you, beat you. Té Amó y té extraño mucho.
