I have so many fond memories of Mr. Lozoya! We used to visit every Christmas, and he always gave me the biggest bear hug even though he only saw me at holidays and in the summer. He made everyone feel like family! So much of what I’m trying to do with my son to fill these long quarantine days comes from things he did with Samantha and I in the backyard all those summers ago! He was a wonderful, kind man and he will be missed!

Biography

Born in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, to Elisaida Venzor and Alejandro Lozoya on August 1, 1935, he grew to become a hard-working, responsible young man by virtue of spending some of his childhood with his maternal grandparents. He would often share stories and photos of working on ranches alongside his grandfather. At the young age of 15, he convinced the owner of La Barata Fabrics in downtown El Paso that he was of legal age to work, and was hired into what would become a 35-year career.

It was at La Barata where he met a beautiful young lady named Carmen Aguayo with whom he fell in love with and eventually married. For the rest of their lives they would tell stories of their courtship, marriage and all of the amazing times they shared together. Listening to these stories never got old.

Early in their marriage, our Dad was assigned to open and manage a new fabric store in Las Cruces, N.M. where he became a well-known businessman who formed relationships with many people. Those relationships lasted a lifetime and he remained close to several of the friends he met there. He returned his family to El Paso in 1969 and established a home on the east side of town so that his kids could attend the newest schools and live in the newest neighborhood. He excelled in his career so that he could provide the best quality of life and education to us all.

Our parents made their final move to the DFW area in 2014 to be closer to their children, grandkids and great grandkids.

Our Dad achieved so much in his lifetime, from being a caring son, to being a great employee/employer, and a true friend to many. However, his greatest accomplishment was in being a father who loved his family unconditionally and made every sacrifice necessary to provide for them. He made a lot of things happen, for us, for everyone. He was giving and caring and kind.

He is preceded in death by his loving wife Carmen, daughter Araceli, son Gabriel “Rocky”, and his mother and father.

He leaves his memory to his children and daughters-in-law Alma, Carmen, Marco and Suzanne, Alex and Yvonne, Eleazar Jr. and Donna, his 8 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, sister Consuelo Gardea, brothers Rodrigo and David Sanchez and numerous nieces and nephews.

Due to pandemic restrictions, services will be limited to immediate family.
