Eusebio A. Estrada

March 5, 1926July 17, 2020

Eusebio A. ESTRADA, age 94, of Sunland Park, New Mexico passed away on Friday, July 17, 2020. Eusebio was born March 5, 1926 to Juan and Rosenda Estrada. Eusebio is survived by his devoted spouse, Maria Emiliana del Socorro Estrada; son Jose A. Cano (Rebecca); daughter Rosario Gricel Ramirez (Jaime†); daughter Sandra Betancourt (Martin†); daughter Rosie Estrada; son Eusebio Estrada, Jr. (Maria); and daughter Edith E. Yanez (Alvaro); brothers Reyes and Juan Estrada. Eusebio is preceded in death by his parents Juan and Rosenda Estrada; grandson Adrian Betancourt; brother Antonio Estrada; sisters Paula Ramirez and Maria de Jesus Estrada. Eusebio also leaves behind his 17 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren to cherish his memory. Eusebio Estrada, who will forever be fondly remembered as “Chevo” to many, had a beautiful yet storied life full of memories that lead you through a journey worthy of a leather bonded Mexican classic novel. His story is one which is full of aventura, resilience in the face of adversity, and humble nobility. In life Chevo etched a legacy of hard work, cultural pride, and generosity for his family to uphold. Through his memories we are guided through a time gone by with raices fuertes y profundas that reach all the way back to his place of birth Juarez, Chihuahua Mexico and his childhood home in Colonia Bella Vista. Soon after life took him to El Paso, TX where he established a family with his “Chocoyette” in the Chihuahita community. After moving to Sunland Park, NM, Chevo became a co-owner of Southwest Plastics, a decision that proved to be a seminal turning point in his life for the better. After Southwest Plastics closed, he started his own carpentry business and was self-employed until he officially retired well into his senior years. Through the years he shared their home with dozens of people who needed a place to stay. Colleagues, family members, and friends who were down on their luck could always count on his generosidad for a warm cozy bed and a plate of comida for as long as they needed. Chevo overcame childhood adversity and started his own business and built their home from the ground up with the help of his wife. Eusebio was himself a great story teller of his memorias as a youth and of his social escapades that took place during the golden ages of the Frontera, historias that he shared with his family with absolute joy. Our dearest querido Esposo, Hermano, Apa, Abuelo, Grandpa, Tio, Suegro, Amigo, Viejo, Paca, Bota you are forever recordado in our hearts. May God keep you in the heavens above where we will meet once again. Special thanks to Dr. Mauricio Jimenez and Mariana Fernandez, Jesus Gonzalez Garcia, and Cuidado Casero (Raquel, Martha and Chelsea) as well as family members Juan Estrada, Antonio Estrada, Jr., and Bertha Becker.
