While in high school, I asked my parents for permission to join the religious order of Maryknoll Fathers. While in high school I coached a little league baseball team for two years. While at St. Mary’s, I was assigned to teach Christian Doctrine at my San Antonio catholic parishes. The CLE was (for a period of 15 years), completed by attending courses on Advanced Estate Planning and charitable Organizations offered by New York University, and the other years, by attending Advanced Estate Planning Courses sponsored by the State Bar of Texas. The D.D. Hachar Charitable Trust for my client and friend D.D. Hachar; the Auxiliaries to the Devotion of the Infant of Good Health, now known as South Texas Outreach, for my client and friend Elizabeth Pease, a resident of the state of Washington; The Alphonse Siros Charitable Trust Fund for my client and friend Alphonse Siros; and The ClaraLou Vena Siros charitable Trust Fund for my client and friend ClaraLou Vena Siros. During the early 1960s while I was employed by the IRS as an Estate Tax Attorney, I was an advocate for South Texas Hispanic CPA field agents. The activities consisted of play time, sports, bible school time, music, skits, puppets and crafts. The summer camp staff consisted of youth teams from ten different large churches from Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas; and also from the UT-AUSTIN and A&M-COLLEGE STATION BAPTIST STUDENT UNIONS. The campus has a free standing building which houses the Children’s Sunday School classrooms. The campus also has a regulation size outdoor basketball court and a softball field. The youth team leaders would drive the two Rio Bravo Baptist Church buses, pick up, and take the children back to their homes. In response to the great need, God sent us many of his workers and team leaders, from across the “Bible Belt”, including cooks, electricians and carpenters. Beginning of January 2013, I prepared, and continue to prepare a fresh weekly “Bible based” sermon. Since I am a pastor/teacher/mentor/and encourager, the sermons are uplifting and inspirational, and of course, evangelical. Visitation will be held this morning, Saturday, August 12, 2017, at Joe Jackson Heights Funeral Chapels, 719 Loring at Cortez, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.; with a chapel service at 10:00 a.m. Procession will then depart the funeral home at 11:00 a.m. Rite of Committal and Interment will follow at the Calvary Catholic Cemetery; where Military Honors will be rendered by American Legion Post 59 and Fort Sam Houston Honor Guard.
