February 10, 1946September 3, 2020

Victor Rendon, 74, of Victoria, passed away on Thursday, September 3, 2020. He was born on February 10, 1946 in Floydada, TX, to the late Allen and Josephine Rendon. He married the love of his life, Eldene Horton, in 1967. Victor graduated from Wayland Baptist University in 1968 and earned his Masters of Education from Texas Tech University in 1978. He began his career in education in 1969 as a junior high teacher. He soon moved into school administration. In Victoria, he served as principal of Guadalupe, William Wood, Juan Linn, and Stanly Elementary schools. From there, Victor moved to VISD administrative positions, culminating in assistant superintendent. Victor was an active member of the community, serving on many non-profit boards and dedicating much time and energy to local organizations. Victor was particularly proud of volunteer work in several local nursing homes, playing the guitar and singing for residents on a weekly basis. He considered this a ministry. Victor was an active member of his church, The Master’s House, where he served as an Elder and volunteered as Chief Financial Officer. His hobbies included music and exercising, having completed four marathons. By far, his favorite pastime was being an all attentive grandfather to his five grandchildren.

Victor was my first friend when I joined the healthplex several years ago-I remember my daughter and I telling Abbey Janssen about the wonderful man in yoga class, he was so friendly and kind! As we described him she smiled and laughed and said that sounds like Suzy’s dad Victor! Sure enough that’s who it was! He was a chatty new friend from then on! Always sharing a story of his family and asking something about ours!

Mr. Rendon was my principal at Guadalupe and my mom's (Pat Klinkerman) principal at Wood Hi. We were deeply saddened to hear of his passing. He was so caring and respectful to all. He always found the time to listen and would talk to you in his soft spoken way. Many fond memories of this great leader! Our thoughts and prayers go out to his beautiful family🙏

Eldene, Jeff, & Suzanne,
On behalf of Imelda and myself, please accept our deepest condolences in the loss of Victor.
Victor was so instrumental in my employment and career opportunities in VISD. I will forever be grateful for his guidance and advice.
In recent years after his retirement, he never missed an opportunity to say "hello" to Imelda & I if we saw him anywhere in the community. He was always so kind and giving of his time. He will be missed by so many educators and friends. Thoughts and Prayers to each of you.

Jeff--I am sorry to learn of your father 's death. My sincere sympathy to you and your family. I knew him to be a fine man who was always available to help staff
solve problems. He always had a kind word and made it a point to stop by my room when he was on the Mitchell campus.
May God keep you enfolded in His loving arms as you grieve his loss.

Elder Victor Rendon was full of wisdom and companion. We’ll miss him greatly and his words will linger on forever in our hearts. One of the last things he said to me was “Some things are worth the cost”...
