Candelario Ramon Rivera Jr., age 35, of Brownsville, Texas passed away on Monday, October 26, 2020. Candelario was born June 24, 1985 to Lupita Rivera and Candelario Rivera Sr.

Today is a day we hoped would've never come but life is a never ending rollercoaster. This day is not a sad day but a day to celebrate the life of Candelario Ramon "Bubba" Rivera. Ramon was a pure soul who's time came too soon. On this day, we lose a great dad, husband, son, brother and friend. Nothing can take away this sadness that we feel but we will do our best to live life for Ramon and make him proud. He was such a sweet and thoughtful person who unfortunately dealt with mental health issues. I hope his plight, not only brings awareness to mental health, but I also hope for all those with family members struggling with it, for you to be kind and treat them with patience and love. Bubba, as we all knew him, was an inspiration to those he came across and a beacon of light for those who knew him. He loved the Dallas Cowboys with all his heart and he bled blue and silver. "Puro pinche Tony Romo (Dak now) y Los Cowboys" he'd say, and in case you wanted to know "It WAS a catch!!" I'm sure he'd want to make that clear. So with a heavy heart we know God welcomes Ramon into his kingdom with open arms.

Candelario is survived by his wife, Amanda Castro Rivera; daughter Alyssa Castro; son Nerak Rivera; daughter Jocelyn Rivera; son Cesar Rivera; and daughter to be Baby Alyvia Rivera; father Candelario Rivera Sr. and mother Lupita Rivera; sister Cristi Rivera (Valdo Alatorre) and brother Adrian Rivera (Ashley); grandmother Cristina Villarreal. Candelario leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews and cousins all who will miss him dearly.

Candelario was preceded in death by grandfather Esteban Villarreal, and grandparents Candelario & Ester Rivera.
