OBITUARY

Pete G. Lozano Jr.

March 22, 1948March 24, 2020

Pete G. Lozano Jr., went to heaven peacefully on March 24, 2020. He passed at his home located in San Antonio, Texas surrounded by his children and family after losing his battle to pancreatic cancer, he was born in San Antonio, Texas on March 22, 1948.

Pete lived his life to the fullest. Although he fought many battles, both health wise and family, he always loved life, loved challenges, loved his children, and most of all loved that he had been blessed with many years and memories. Pete reached every one of his goals and wishes. He made it to Eric’s HS and College graduation, Esperanza’s Quinceañera, Esperanza’s high school graduation, and was so proud of her on her first day of college. And last by not least, witnessed Eric marry a beautiful partner in Amanda who became a big part of Pete’s life. Pete would often say “you guys are set now, I have lived my life and I have paved the road for you and now I am ready to go play dominoes and checkers with my Dad in heaven and hopefully he won’t try to cheat this time”.

Pete enjoyed his twin boys, Adam and Peter, going out of state hunting, fishing, he would often say, my boys are grown men now and I taught them to stand up and not take no BS from no one, he was proud of all their accomplishments. They too have many memories, working hard alongside their dad at the trucking company, good times, bad times, but Pete loved them, he did not go to heaven until he said bye to both of them.

Pete enjoyed ranching, cattle raising, and would spend as much time as possible at his 3L Ranch located in LaSalle County. Pete enjoyed hunting at his ranch, fishing in Corpus Christi and Rockport, enjoyed gambling in Las Vegas, most importantly he enjoyed his Trucking and Construction businesses. Alongside his father, the Late Mr. Pete G. Lozano Sr, they founded and operated Pete G. Lozano Trucking Co. Pete was so proud to be a part of moving the historic Fairmount Hotel downtown in 1985. Although he had numerous businesses, it was “if you know “Lozano Trucking”, you knew Pete Jr,” that’s just the way it was. He would say that no one could ever take that great feeling from him, years of hard work that earned him that respect and loved it! His final years were spent working with his company, Lozano Construction and Trucking Co Inc., which he formed in 1982. He and his son Eric made so many great memories working together, going to equipment auctions, and of course going fishing every chance they got. They hardly ever caught anything and the boat was usually broken when they returned. We sure are going to miss the days when Pete would walk through the door and say “we’re home from the coast and please make an appointment to take the boat to the shop for it needs some repairs…again”! Pete loved it; a lot of adventures and memories for Eric.

Pete is survived by his wife, Rosanna (which usually had to be the one to bail them out of some of their adventures) sons, Pete III (Pamala), Adam (Marissa), Eric (Amanda), which Pete loved like a daughter. Amanda was his side kick, driving him around town and taking him to lunch to his favorites spots, his only daughter, Esperanza, which could talk him to doing just about anything, grandchildren, Anjelica Lozano, Coroline Lozano, Abigail Lozano, Adam Lozano Jr, Scott Lozano, Brooke Lozano, numerous nephews and nieces, one brother, Daniel Lozano, sisters Olga Garcia and Rosanne Seale (Bo) Sister in laws, Becky and her husband Sam, a great brother in law and perfect personal cook for Pete’s picky appetite, (LOL) Leslie and her husband Randy and Rachel G. Wilson, brother in laws, “Rose’s brothers) Bobby Garcia and Rene Garcia Jr, and his father in law Rene Garcia Sr. A special thanks to his best friend ever, Gary Harwell (Moni). They were childhood friends and stayed together through all these years, never left each other, always had each other’s back, good things and a little bit of bad things, but together until the end.

Pete had a tremendous amount of good friends, both business and personal. The family appreciates all the visits and phone calls throughout his illness. It was amazing to see so many friends come to our home to visit.

Pete is proceeded in death by his best friend, his father, Pete G. Lozano Sr, his mother, Theresa Lozano, his sister, Irma Lozano, and his mother in law Odilia Garcia which he adored, (I am sure they are together now and living it up.)

A special thanks to all the nurses and doctors at Methodist Transplant Hospital, and Dr. Carl Dukes which was not only his doctor but his friend of over 30 years.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19; there will not be an official service. We invite you to leave your condolences on this site. Pete will be cremated and his ashes will reside at his beloved 3L Ranch. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to either the cancer society or St. Jude.

I just heard that Junior passed away. We did not even know he was ill. We spent many good times with him in San Antonio when we came to visit and enjoyed his company each time he came to see us in Minnesota. He was the rock that we desperately needed when my dad died and I never got the chance to express my appreciation for all that he did. I always felt a special bond with him and we teased each other for years.
I regret that I never returned to Texas to visit but after losing uncle Sam and uncle Pete as well as my dad, Lupe, I couldn’t bring myself to return. I am greatly saddened that he has passed and I will always have fond memories of the time we spent together. Prayers and love to the family.

I am the daughter of Gloria Lozano Svoboda, she is Junior’s first cousin through his uncle Lupe (my grandpa). I’ll never forget when Junior cane to Minnesota for my Grandpa Lupe’s funeral. I was 12 at the time. He rented a Cadillac, which he drove everyone around Fairmont in, and had this wonderful personality that you just knew no matter what as long as you were with him, everything was going to be alright. He was the ultimate vaquero, suave and gentile, chivalrous, and kind. He made one heck of an impression on me and I loved him instantly. Rest In Peace! Say hi and send my love to all those that have gone before you, especially Lupe and Florence Lozano.... hasta la próxima vez que nos veamos.

My father, mother, and I knew Mr. Lozano; through the years, we worked with him and his family. He reminded me of my mother and reminds me of my dad as well, due to his strong personality. He knew what he wanted and went for it! He was also seen as a caring person who offered advice and support to others during some tough times. I know his sons and have seen the great business sense he has instilled in them.

May God Bless Mr. Lozano and his family,

I have received many things over the years from my Father-in-Law. His generosity, his kindness, his sense of humor, respect, and most importantly his love. Words don’t exist that can put my feelings in print, or come close to it.
All I have are the memories of the adventures we took, all the times you left me in “...omg is he serious he wants me to do that?” But I did it anyway, cause I knew I had him by my side, and with that feeling itself I knew I was secure with whatever happened, happened. He kept things interesting, and I never knew what the day had in store for us cause he was unpredictable. His mentality was “It’ll be alright” little did he know I was terrified inside, cause everything he asked me to do involved heavy machinery and it turned out that everything was alright! I’ll hold every memory close to my heart. Thank you for treating me like a daughter, because I saw you as a second dad. Thank you for being you, because there was never a dull moment. I’ll love and miss you immensely Pete. Until we meet again ❤️

Our favorite memory of Mr Lozano has to be the time he took us all hunting at 3L Ranch. Our son Francisco was about 8 years old and his first time hunting. Pete took him with him to his deer blind and a few hours later we hear the gun shot. We could see from our blind that Mr Lozano got in his truck and drove off heading to the ranch house. About an hour later we decided to go check on Francisco since there was no sign of Pete coming back. As we start to drive up to the blind we could see our son frighten and in tears but holding that riffle for dear life as he sat on top of the buck he had just shot. Rose called us to let us know that Pete was at the house drinking coffee and having breakfast. Francisco was scared but proud of the buck he had just shot. We asked him where did Mr Lozano go? He said that he was going to go get the farm truck and to just sit and wait for him but to shoot at any dogs that came at him. Little did he k know those were not dogs but coyotes . Lol!
We all went back to the ranch house and Me Lozano was as calm as he could be just smiling and knowing that his job was done. He had taught our son a very valuable life lesson and at the same time gave him the opportunity to shoot his first deer at the 3L Ranch....a memory my son will never forget. We loved him dearly and he will be missed. A very humble and well respected man of great character. His spirit and love for his family and life will always be present at the 3L Ranch. Love the Gaeta Family.

I was introduced to Pete through my dad Roy I Rodriguez. My dad was working with Pete on a few project and each were helping each other out, in what was hard times. It wasn’t until working full time, when Pete mentored me and introduced me to several commercial customers. Pete always had a way with dealing with people, that caught my attention. Pete was not a very tall man but, that did not translate on how he interacted with people. One day, he introduced me to a superintendent with T & S, who was a 6’-6” dude with a deep intimidating voice . As we walked in to the supers field office Pete said, “ I want you to meet God”, all with a straight face. That was so cool, it landed me a job and gave me a lesson.
Thank you Pete for being there for me .
Love Michael and Cheryl Rodriguez and the
E-Z Bel Construction Family.

Good bye to my brother-in-law! I had the pleasure of knowing this great man for 30 years and I wish we had another 30 years of him! I will miss his sweet smile and warm hug every time we would see each other. I will also miss his brotherly advice to me every time I saw him..."hey Rachel, you are looking a little chunky..." I always dieted before I went to see him knowing this would be his opening statement to me! In reality, he thought my sister, his loving wife, was perfect and that everyone should look just like her (she obviously is much skinnier than I). I will miss you so much my sweet Pete!
