Osias Uribe Obituary
Osias "Ozzie" Uribe, 71, of El Paso, Texas, passed away peacefully late evening on Saturday, June 21, 2014, at Providence Memorial Hospital. He was born in Mexico City, Mexico, to Rafael and Ofelia Uribe, was raised in Anthony, New Mexico, but lived most of his adult life in El Paso, Texas. A graduate of Gadsden High School in 1962, he soon joined the United States Navy, serving from 1962-1968. He received the National Defense Service Medal, where he was assigned to Attack Squadron 125 in LeMoore, California. Ozzie was a man of many accomplishments, which included his education from Technical Vocational Institute with a diploma in drafting technology, received an associate degree in construction management from El Paso Community College, achieved a BA in business management from Prescott College, Arizona, and finished his schooling with an MA in environmental engineering at the University of Texas at El Paso. He was a member of the American Legion and the Country Gents Car Club in his teen years, and was also a member of the Vista Del Sol Optimist Club, where he served as president, as well as in other major positions, for over 10 years. He held many prestigious job positions, including engineering, senior compliance specialist, draftsman and architect. Ozzie devoted his time working at the El Paso Natural Gas Co. as an environmental scientist until he retired after 31 years of dedicated service. He enjoyed watching boxing and keeping active. He was an avid supporter of his grandchildren's multiple sporting events, which included football, basketball, volleyball, swimming, and enjoyed sharing in their victories. Many of his strong qualities included being a loving, selfless and compassionate man, helping friends and family with household projects, coaching, volunteering, or in whatever else was asked of him. Being a devout Catholic, he always remained strong in his faith. Ozzie was extremely loving and proud of his wife and best friend, Aurelia (Lela), with whom he just celebrated a Golden Wedding Anniversary of 50 years on June 14, 2014. He was a loving and devoted father, leaving behind two children, Dina Lubbers (Rogelio Acosta) and Ozzie Uribe Jr. (Melissa). He is also survived by three sisters, Rachel Uribe, Betty Gonzales-Sosa, and Isela Covarrubia; three brothers, Raul, Raphael Jr. and Hector; as well as his many loving grandchildren, Danica, Alexis, Jessica, Jaycie Lubbers and Elijah, Esaui, Ezra Uribe; and many nieces, nephews and friends. Ozzie was a loving father, husband, grandfather, and a friend to all. Gone is a father loved by all; his soul is now at rest. He'll sleep in peace - his work is done. A fathers work - the best. He'll know the joy of perfect rest in heaven up above, where he may dwell contentedly protected by God's love. Our hearts may grieve that he must lie beneath the sacred sod. And yet we know he lives in peace within the house of God. We love you Dad and you will be with us in our hearts and spirit forever! Visitation and viewing will be held on Thursday, June 26, at Funeraria Del Angel Harding Orr & McDaniel, 320 Montana, El Paso, at 6 p.m., followed by rosary services starting at 7 p.m. Funeral Mass will be Friday, June 27, at St. Anthony Church in Anthony, New Mexico, at 9 a.m., followed by burial services to be held at Fort Bliss National Cemetery at 11 a.m.
