Elizandro Adalberto Moreno, at age 70 he was suddenly called upon to be with our Lord, in the early hours of July 9th, 2018. Elizandro was born November 19, 1947 in Nava Coahuila Mexico to his parents Elizandro Moreno Aleman and Consuelo Alvarado Alfaro. Elizandro was happily married to his wife for 42 years. Elizandro Moreno was a very humble, compassionate, and extremely hardworking man. Elizandro was known for always working on projects around his home from dawn to dusk, and helping others with their home projects. He enjoyed spending time in his garden, where he planted seasonal fruits and vegetables. He enjoyed tending to a variety of plants and beautiful flowers as well. He was very religious, he attended our Lady of Guadalupe Church every Sunday. Elizandro was a devoted father and he loved his family very much. To everyone's surprise, on April, 2018, an otherwise healthy Elizandro was diagnosed with cancer stage T3. Our father Elizandro was extremely optimistic about finishing his treatment, and made many plans for the future. Elizandro passed away early morning on July 9th, 2018 from complications from his chemotherapy and radiation treatment that had weaken his heart. He is survived by his three children, Irene C., Elizandro Jr, and Juan Jaime Moreno, and his wife, Irene V. Moreno. We shall remember many things about Elizandro Moreno, especially his love for his family and church.

I am so saddened to have heard this news. Mr. Moreno was always the first person I saw daily, and his presence shown like a shining light! He always went out of his way to help by opening a door when my hands were full, offering a ready smile wishing me a great day before he went about his job.

Blessings of love to your family at this very sad time for a wonderful man.

Very truly yours,

So sorry to hear about your loss. Moreno was a great man. He was always extremely helpful to me at Independence. He always had a smile on his face and was just a joy to be around.

My sincerest condolences to the family. May he rest in eternal peace.

I will miss Mr. Moreno's smile and "good morning" wave as I make my way to my classroom. It was always the nicest way to start the day. He was a reassuring presence on our Independence campus.
Rest in Peace Mr. Moreno

I will always remember Mr. Moreno and his willingness to help others. He was so kind when I returned to Independence after my mastectomy. In 2002, electronic equipment in our rooms had to be moved to more secure locations for the summer, and he was concerned that it was too soon after my surgery for me to do this. He not only returned my equipment, he came by my room every afternoon during the last week to see if I needed additional help.

I recently learned that Mr. Moreno passed away and was immediately struck with sadness, as well as the memories I have of working with him last year. Mr. Moreno and I waived and greeted to each other multiple times each day as I arrived on campus in the mornings, to and from brunch/lunch supervision, classroom visitations, IEP meetings, and during the closing activities of the school day. Each greeting included warm smiles and a brief conversation or salutation. He will be missed dearly by many. My deepest condolences to his loved ones.

I will miss Señor Moreno, every morning we would talk around 6:30 am. He used to be the first person to greet me at work. He was an amazing person, respectful, humble, supportive and always willing to help others. I will miss Señor Moreno at work. I will never forget Señor Moreno.

I will sorely miss him, every morning we would greet each other on my way to my classroom at 7 AM and many days I would see him as I left school. Sorry for your loss.

Señor Moreno was very much loved and respected at work too! We had the best relationship with him, he was kind and humble, never said NO when it was time to help. We are going to miss him terribly, never forget him.

I often wondered how tio Junior became such a handyman, how he could easily install a ceiling fan, replace a sprinkler head, or repair a leaky pipe. Where did he learn this craft that benefited so many? Whenever something broke or required repair around the house, the first solution was always “call tio Jr!” Without fail, tools in hand and ready to tackle whatever task at hand was my uncle Jr!!! He never complained, just did the work and went about his way. He had an infectious laugh that I can still hear so vividly!! The kind of laugh that was genuine, and inviting!
He will always hold a special place in our hearts and although, birthdays, holidays, and boxing nights will never be the same for our Moreno family we are grateful that God blessed him as a part of our family. He has now graduated to ancestor and we will still seek his guidance and look for his gentle, compassionate ways in everything we do.
