Hector Bautista Sr., 75, unexpectedly left us on January 15, 2013 in El Paso, TX. On March 8, 1937 Hector was born in El Paso, TX. In 1957 he married the love of his life Genette Duran. In 1962 they left El Paso, TX and moved to Orange County, CA. Hector worked for West Newport Oil Co in Newport Beach, CA over looking his beloved ocean and surfers. At the time of his retirement he and his family moved to Ruidoso Downs, NM. Here he found his love of nature and tranquility. Hector is survived by his wife of 55 years Genette, his children Hector Jr., Joseph, Rene, Richard, Bernadette and his grandchildren. Hector was a very loving husband, father, grandfather and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. "The void you left is only temporary- for we will see each other again." Surfs up Dad the waves coming in and its narley! Services will be Saturday February 15, 2013, 11am at St. Joseph's Apache Mission.
