Albert was born in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico to Pedro and Irene Vega on April 8, 1941. A good man and a wonderful family man is the recurring theme reiterated when describing Albert. At the age of five he was tagging along with his brother to shine shoes in downtown Corpus Christi and he continued working throughout his life for the benefit of his family. While never a man of financial affluence, he took his monetary accountability serious and always ensured his word and credit were impeccable. His loved ones never lacked for nurture nor the essentials of life. He spent his professional life in wholesale hardware and plumbing supplies and enjoyed mentoring all who cared to learn. A deeply spiritual man, he was gifted with a wonderful voice for song and sang in the church choir all his life. Albert was a charitable man and gave generously of his time, knowledge, and whatever monetary means he could spare. He was never more than a shout away from his children’s activities and participated as a PTO President, a youth sports coach, a school event prop and set builder, a church booth leader, a scout team leader, and far too many others to list here. He opened his heart and residence to several individuals and families over the years who needed a temporary place to stay or a guiding hand along the way. His greatest joy came from the company of family and friends, and of course a good cup of coffee.

Albert is preceded in death by his wife Maria E. Vega; parents Pedro Vega and Irene Solis Vega; two brothers Maximiliano Solis Vega and Marcelino Solis Vega; and one sister Maria Ramona Solis Vega; and one grandchild Amanda Marie Coleman. He is survived by his sister Delfina Hernandez; four sons Albert (Monica) Vega Jr., Christopher Vega, Larry (Cheryl) Vega, and Al (Brenda) Coleman; and one daughter Irene (Alex) Aragon; eleven grandchildren Kristina (Brandon) Gilbeau, Kelly Coleman, Heather (Alexander) Schiller, Ariel (Jesse) Doggendorf, Nathan Vega, Larry C. Vega, Jeremy Vega, Nick Vega, Alyssa Vega, Michael Aragon, Gabby Aragon; six great-grandchildren Zoey and Austin Schiller, Emma and Austin Gilbeau, and Victoria and Robert White.

You gave your word and stood by it. You gave your help and expected no credit. You gave your heart and made things better for so many. You were a good man, valued and loved by all who had the pleasure to honor and know you. While our hearts are heavy, they are lifted knowing that you are soaring in heaven and singing with angels. God bless and Rest in Peace for you are forever loved.

I am so very sorry, i just found out about your Dad's crossing over to God at work from another St. Hyacinth member who had also just found out. Had I known, I would have been at the Rosary and part of the service. Your mom and dad were wonderful friends of my parents through the K.C.s 3700, the Auxiliary, Catholic Daughters, the Men's Club and St. Hyacinth itself. They prayed for my husband when he was struck with leukemia at an early age and I knew that they meant it when they said that they understood my loss when he died suddenly. They, along with my parents, kept an eye on and helped Father Luis Chia when he retired. I have not known better Catholics than your parents. I just saw your Dad a month or so ago at the grocery store and can't believe he crossed over so suddenly. But I know that he and his beloved Maria are most likely with my Mom and Dad, Mary and John Grunstein, and my husband, Mike Neelley, sitting around a table with a coffee pot, eating your Moms homemade cookies and discussing politics. You all are in my prayers, as I know that you will miss him. God bless.
In Christ's Love, Janet Grunstein-Neelley

Pop Vega was a wonderful man, my cousin is married to his son Larry Vega. My daughter's an I had come to live with my cousin and her family. Pop Vega welcomed us with open arms and treated us like family. I didn't have a car so he sold me his ford explorer for a 1.oo. So I would have a car to get to work with. I was able to talk with him and he never judged anyone , he would always give me hug everytime he saw me. I will miss you pop vega, but I know your with mom vega and having a wonderful time.
