Felipe G Guerrero Jr. (Tito), 96, caring brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend went home to be with the Lord on Sunday December 27, 2020, on the Feast of the Holy Family the year of St. Joseph. He leaves a life well lived, a family legacy most only dream of, and many lifelong friends. He has now joined his parents, the love of his life, Dolia, his most beloved brothers, Joe Guerrero and Albert Guerrero, his sisters, Connie Mullins, Alice Arizpe, and wife, Ann Guerrero, in the heavenly beatific vision.
He was born to Felipe and Cenovia Guerrero in Rangerville, Texas on 12/24/1924. As a youngster of 8 yrs. old, he worked closely with his father and oldest brother, Joe with their mother working to complement them in keeping their family of 10 fed and healthy. His parents strong family values, along with the struggles of the 1930's, taught him much about life and gave him the compassionate and nurturing side we all knew him by. His parent's involvement in helping their community was something we knew he was very proud to be a part of by the stories he would share with his grandchildren. As a young man he worked alongside his father farming cotton and grain. He learned to work all facets of cotton production which lead him to oversee the construction of cotton gins in Panama, Guatemala, and Nicaragua for Lummus Corporation. Upon his return to the USA he continued farming for the next forty years.
He met and married the love of his life, Dolia, in 1947 and together they had 33 years of marriage and 5 children. He was a loving father to Felipe Guerrero (Cassandra), Rebecca Guerrero Freeman, Jose Ricardo Guerrero (Sandy), Annette Guerrero Crockett (Stan), and Jamie J Guerrero (Lisa). He loved being a father, not only to his children but, to anyone that needed to be taken under his wing.
After the loss of his wife, years later, he married, Ann Rodriguez. She along with her children, Hesiquio Rodriguez (Eva), Charlie Rodriguez, Susie Jones (Scott), and Rosie Rodriguez became a part of his family. Together, Tito and Ann enjoyed a long life of golfing and fishing before she passed away.
Tito was an avid sportsman! He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and generally anything that allowed him to be outdoors. Later in life, at the age of 80, he began restoring 1925-1930 Ford Model A's with his best friend and eldest brother Joe. Everyone at Johnny's True Value knew him well! With this hobby he rekindled his friendship with Dial Dunkin from Harlingen. Together, they not only enjoyed collecting and restoring cars, they never passed up a good day for a fishing trip.
Tito was easy to befriend. He always extended a helping hand to anyone in need. Our beloved father will be missed by us all. We will remember him with this quote,
"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life, it goes on" -Robert Frost.
Left to mourn his loss are his sisters, Dora Schultz, Helen Guerrero, Betty Romer, his children, and his grandchildren Devin Mendoza (Marcus), Graham Guerrero (Ashley), Keith Freeman, Kevin Freeman (Leslie), Jack Freeman, Lauren Freeman, Natalie Chalmers (Taylor), Anton Guerrero (Kelly), Zifa Gidora (Danny), Katelyn Crockett, Brad Crockett (Reagan), Jared Guerrero (Shelby) and Juliana Guerrero, Leah Chaffin, Christopher Rodriguez, Richard Rodriguez, David Rodriguez (Nicole), Johnathan Rodriguez (Kylie), 12 nieces & nephews and 16 great grandchildren.
Visitation will begin at 4 pm on Wendesday December 30th at Trinity Funeral Home in Harlingen, Texas, with a rosary at 6:00 pm. Funeral Mass will be held at 10 am on Thursday December 31, 2020 at St. Anthony Catholic Church.
