My favorite memories of my grandpa are when we would go to Blockbuster, rent movies, and make popcorn.
We watched the Neverending story and Indiana Jones many times.
We had many fun summers learning how to ride our bikes and playing in the swimming pool in our grandparent’s backyard.
He was a doting great grandfather to my nephew Anthony. He bought him several toy cars and loved playing with him. ❤️

Manuel & Julie were our neighbors in the first house we bought. We loved them and they kept our son when he was a baby. Forty years later we discovered they had moved in behind us. We were so excited! They are the sweetest people and we will miss Manuel. Our love and prayers to Julie and the family.

I am one of Manuel’s Classic car interior restoration customers. And of course I was shocked and quite saddened to hear he was so ill last week. He did three automobile interior related jobs for me over the ten years I’ve known him and in each case it was a very pleasant experience. Every job was punctuated by Manuel’s exceptional craftsmanship, honesty, and friendliness. Manuel was great to work with. I will miss him tremendously. The Dallas car buff community has suffered a tremendous loss.

Julie and family members, please accept my most sincere condolences.

I met Manuel about six years ago when I approached him about recovering the leather pieces for my two older Mercedes coupes. These are not easy interiors as they were mostly hand constructed and required somebody who really knew their trade. Manuel was that person. From day one I was impressed by his knowledge, his passion for doing it correctly and for really caring how the job turned out. A true craftsman.

Manuel insisted that I take each part home as he completed them, to check that they fit on my car just as they did from the factory. It was surely an inconvenience for Manuel, given that he typically fit the pieces directly on the car. Manuel was always eager to show me how he did things in his shop and I guess he could see that I enjoyed that.

During my many visits with Manuel, he spoke at length about his early days in Dallas and his projects in the aircraft industry. He told me about the unbelievably precise fit and finish required on these aircraft. Amazing! But the topic that came up most frequently was his family. Manuel talked about his wife and children, the grandkids and the great grandkids. He was very proud of his family and shared many stories about them. The one I remember the most was about the Halloween parties on their East Texas land. Sounded like a lot of fun.

In the six years that I knew Manuel, he had a big impact on me. We tend to take for granted the time we have with others. Looking back, I am so glad I got to know Manuel.

I was so shocked to hear about Manuel. He was so strong and healthy. Shaking hands with him felt like your hand was in a vise. I think I first met him at least 30 years ago. Our mutual friend Hyatt Cheek introduced us. Manuel was a genius with classic car upholstery. Below is a link to a video of he and I. He did all the leather work and convertible top work on that car. It won multiple awards in the US and then was shipped to England where it won even more awards. He was Internationally known for the quality of his work.

He was also one of the finest gentlemen I have ever known. He was always glad to see you, spend time with you, and a very gracious host.

I am sorry to report I will not be able to attend the services. I had a house guest and 3 days after they left they tested positive for Covid. I am still in the quarantine period.

My sincerest condolences go out to his family. He will be missed.

We knew and remember Manuel and Mrs Trevino through our good friend and spiritual brother John. We remember first meeting Mr and Mrs Trevino at a family camping outing at their property near Palestine. A bunch of John's family and friends were there and we all had a great time getting acquainted and having a great outdoor party. We later sold a 5th wheel RV to Mr Trevino and delivered it to their home in Dallas. Again we really enjoyed our time visiting with them over dinner and getting a grand tour of the Trevino house and property including Mr Trevino's upholstery shop. He was a great man and we are quite sure he will be greatly missed. Praise the Lord that he is now in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus. Amen.
