Mario Alberto Avalos


Mario Alberto Avalos, 48, passed away Monday, November 19, 2018, surrounded by his loving family.

Mr. Avalos was a righteous man with a heart full of love for everyone. As a father, he was the best he could be raising his boys, Mario, Arturo and Silviano, preparing their journey of life with lessons that will be engraved in their hearts and minds forever. He taught them that even with tears in their eyes they should always smile and enjoy life.  He will always be remembered as a creative person always invents and building things from scratch turning nothing into something.   The love of his life, his beautiful wife, Raquel will always remember him for the never-ending love that grew day by day until eternity.  His brother, Alfonso Avalos, and sister, Maribel Avalos, will always remember him as being an unselfish, loving brother that always cared for them.  Their childhood will always be remembered as the stepping stone to their journey of a wonderful sibling love that united them until it was time to part.  Waiting for him in heaven is his mother, Arabela Ramirez, who he cared for and had an inseparable bond.  The Cowboys are going to miss their number one fan.  He’ll be cheering from the balconies of Heaven.

Mr. Avalos is preceded in death by his mother, Arabela Avalos; grandparents, Armando, Josefa Ramirez; uncle, Pomposo Ramirez and aunt Maria Concepcion Ramirez.

Left to cherish her memory is his wife of 23 years of marriage, Raquel Avalos; children, Silviano Esparza, Arturo Leonardo Esparza, Mario Alberto Avalos, Jr.; grandchildren, Alissa A. Esparza, Mathew N. Esparza, Miguel M. Rodriguez, Manuel Rodriguez, Jr., Mayo Rodriguez and Mireya M. Rodriguez; siblings, Alfonso (Eva) Avalos, III and Maribel (Jesse) Avalos, other relatives and friends.
