Humberto was born in San Benito, TX to Maria and Enrique Guerrero on 8/29/1936. He was the youngest of 14 children. He grew up in Brownsville, TX and graduated with many academic/athletic honors from St. Joseph's Academy High School. He graduated from St. Mary's University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. While attending college, he met the love of his life. He married Evelyn Guerrero, his eternal love, September 6, 1959 and were married for over 55 years.

In 1959, he joined the Army and served honorably. He and Evelyn raised four children and through sacrifice ensured that each child received a Catholic education through high school. They continued their firm beliefs in Catholic education by continuing to give their volunteer time to Catholic schools and Churches, in particular, St. Pius X, Bishop Lynch, and Bishop Dunne.

He worked as a Supervisory Chemist for 30 years for FDA. He was chosen to go to Mexico City, Mexico to assist the Mexican government in creating the modern Mexican FDA. He consulted with the World Health Organization in Rome, Argentina, Peru, and Puerto Rico. After a distinguished career with the FDA, he retired in 1991 to focus on his grandchildren. Evelyn and Humberto spent much time attending sporting events, family events, and hosting extended summer vacations at "Mamo and Papo's" home. Their home was built with laughter, memories, and love.

Humberto is preceded in death by his wife, Evelyn, and his son, Humberto Jr. He is survived by his three children Roxane Guerrero (Larry Rolle), Laura Guerrero (Stephen Beatty), Stephen Guerrero Sr. (Melissa), and his 10 grand children Micaela Guerrero Hamilton (Arni Aguilar), Stephen Beatty Jr., Ariana Guerrero Hamilton (Christopher Gonzales), Danielle Eads (Taylor Eads), Rebecca Beatty, Marcela Guerrero, Humberto Guerrero III, Georgine Guerrero, Adrian Guerrero, and Stephen Guerrero Jr.

Uncle Beto was a Real hero in my life growing up in the valley. I remember him coming to see me and my brothers when we’re going to mount scared heart school in San Antonio after my mom and dad divorced. Thanks for all the great memories Uncle Beto.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to The Guerrero Family. Mr. Guerrero was my first supervisor at the Food and Drug Administration. He was such an awesome boss, mentor and teacher! I learned so much from him, including valuable life lessons that have helped me along the way. He was truly a blessing in helping to shape my career at FDA and I will be forever grateful. I will continue to pray for The Guerrero Family during their time of sorrow.

Humberto and I were Supervisor and Chemist, while we had a strong relationship, we respected each other's knowledge and professional abilities. We often butted heads, but always worked to do our very best at the task at hand, God bless your family in this time of sorrow.

Uncle Beto was the best and ahead of his time. I will never forget when my parents went to Mexico City around 1960 and Uncle Beto and Aunt Evelyn took care of me and our family so my parents could have a vacation. Uncle Beto use to keep us amused by "reading our minds." Of all the Guerrero brothers Uncle Beto reminded me most of my dad with that great smile, wit and optimism.

We all loved him and will miss him dearly.

I would like to extend my condolences to the family. Mr. Guerrero was the first boss I worked for with the Food and Drug Administration. I was hired as a Chemist trainee and worked under Mr. Guerrero's supervision in the New Orleans Laboratory. He was always very kind. He was a man of high standards. I will be praying for the family during this time of loss.

I have such fond memories of Uncle Bert. As a child I remember the family visits and hospitality. The clocks and the stories behind them. I remember how he listened and was genuinely interested in my thoughts and ideas. As an adult, I remember he and Aunt Evelyn taking me on a tour of the city ending in a magnificent feast at Pappadeaux's. He will be missed.
