ABEL DIAZ

Abel "Baby" Diaz, 72, of El Paso, Texas, passed away Monday, November 4, 2013 surrounded by his family. Born on July 22, 1941, Abel was the son of the late Pablo E. Diaz and Bertha (Enriquez) Diaz. He attended Jefferson High School before moving on to start his family and begin work as an auto parts salesman and manager for over 40 years until forced to retire due to illness. However, this did give him the opportunity to enjoy more of his pastimes; eating everything he wanted but wasn't supposed to, watching John Wayne westerns, WWF wrestling and most of all enjoying his Dallas Cowboys-- all of which he could never seem to get enough of. Abel loved telling stories of the numerous battles throughout his life and how "he was never one to back down" and proved this to be true as he remained a fighter to the very end, always reminding us that "family comes first" along the way. We love you and will miss you dad! Abel is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Olga C. Diaz; daughters, Betty Kilcrease and Olga Diaz Deslongchamps; sons, Abel, Paul Henry, Joe, and Jerry Diaz; daughters and sons-in-law, Catherine Diaz, Gaby Orona, Kyle Kilcrease and Alfredo Muela; granddaughters, Nicolette, Madison and Isabella Diaz, Kelsey and Amanda Kilcrease, Alyda Muela and Vivian Orona, grandsons Dustin, Johnny, and Joshua Deslongchamps, Cameron, Jake, Sean and Aiden Diaz, and great-grandson Dexter Gonzalez; sisters Maria Elena Fonseca, Cecilia Luna and Sylvia Muro as well as numerous loved aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his brother, Gilbert Diaz; sisters, Betty Chavez and Lily Saucedo and his son Davy Diaz.

Funeral Service will be held at 9 am Saturday, November 9, 2013 at Sunset Funeral Home-East. Interment will follow at Mount Carmel Cemetery. Services entrusted to Sunset Funeral Home-East.
