ODESSA Jesus V. Almance, age 92, of Odessa, passed away on Saturday, April 6, 2013, at Deerings Nursing Home. He was born in La Hacienda, Presidio County, Texas, on October 9, 1920, to Jesus Carrasco Almance and Genoveva (Vasquez) Almance.|
Jesus was a great husband to Trinidad Ramirez for 43 years and the best "Abuelito" you could ask for; who was very supportive of his children and his daughter in laws. He was also very caring and an easy person to get along with, who never said a bad word. Jesus loved reading the Bible and loved to eat (especially goat and eggs). He enjoyed horses, working outside in the yard, playing guitar and saxophone.
He is survived by his sons: Jesus G. Almance of Ojinaga, Chihuahua, Mexico, and Auden Almance and Pedro Almance, both of Odessa; daughter: Olga Horton of Odessa; brothers: Pedro Almance and Sabino Almance, both of Presidio, Enrique Almance and Salomon Almance both, of Odessa, and Apolinar Almance and Conrado Almance, both of Marfa; twelve grandchildren; and twenty-six great-grandchildren plus 1 on the way.
