February 1, 1939 – February 15, 2020
On February 15, 2020, Joaquin Trevino entered eternal rest at the age of 81. Originally from Brownsville, Texas, he was born on February 1, 1939 to Felipe and Aurora (Flores) Trevino. He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother Pedro Vasquez. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather who spent 24 years in the USAF, honorably serving his country as a crypto and telecommunications specialist. He and his spouse Maria coached baseball, basketball, softball, and bowling. Those fortunate to know him were guaranteed a joke or two, a song to sing along to, and a story to share. His love of music multiplied when he lost his sight, as it was something he truly enjoyed. He shared his music with anyone who would listen and regularly broke into the song singing “Ain’t No Women Like the One I Got”. He was a phenomenal dancer and took any opportunity to get his love Maria on a dance floor. He found great joy in fishing with his son, playing pool with friends, and cards with anyone who would sit at the table. His greatest love was his family, creating memories from generation to generation. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 59 years Maria (Barrera) Trevino; his daughter Nina T. Owens; son Gino (Janna J.) Trevino; grandchildren: Sheena M. Owens, Brianna D. Owens, Tyler J. Trevino, Austin J. Trevino, Shayna M. Trevino; great-grandchildren: Gianna Cortez, Liliana Morales, Milla Morales, Farrel Massey, and Joaquin West; siblings: Ninfa Vasquez, Zoila Pina, Felipe Trevino, Jose Trevino, Frank Robles, Noe Robles, Ignacia Crowe, Jesus Castillo; and numerous other relatives. The family will be receiving guests at Sunset Northwest Funeral Home, 6321 Bandera Road, San Antonio Texas, 78238 on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 from 6:00-8:00 PM with a Memorial Service at 7:00 PM.
