On April 16th, 2014, our good Lord called our father, Manuel J. Guerrero to join his wife, Gloria Guerrero in Heaven. Manuel J. Guerrero passed away peacefully in his home. He was born in Trinidad, Colorado March 8th, 1929. He was a long life resident of El Paso, Texas. Manuel was an intelligent, hardworking and dedicated loving husband, father, brother, uncle and son. He was a self-made man who started his own business, M&R Iron Works on Alameda and had it for over 35 years. His work is proudly and prominently displayed in El Paso as well as in Austin and other major cities in Texas. He was a devote Catholic who loved and prayed to our Virgin Mary (La Virgen de Guadalupe). Manuel would give his shirt off his back to anyone in need. Horse racing was his favorite hobby. He is survived by his six children: Carlos Rene Guerrero (Angelica), Mary Helen Lechuga (Fortunato), Norma Alicia Gushin (George) Patsy Ayala (Raul), Manuel Angel Guerrero and Gabriela Ring (Shell); fifteen grandchildren: Jennifer Anne Jimenez, Stephanie Terrazas, Kristopher Harpoon, Alan A.
