Obituaries from Two Days Ago

Ocampo, Arturo  
September 29, 1948 - December 14, 2014 Arturo, a Franciscan Friar and Priest, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends. He joked, made everyone laugh, requested "selfies", and sang Happy Birthday to his sister Lucy. Before his pulmonary illness slowed him down last year, he spent 3 months traveling through Spain visiting friends he loved. His passions were traveling, writing, drawing, and capturing family history through photography. Our Uncle Art was the beloved Patriarch of the Ocampo family, and is survived by many family members including his 85 year old mother, Eva Rivera Ocampo. Siblings: Paul Ocampo, Deacon Jose Luis Ocampo, Lucia Ocampo. 9 nephews, 5 nieces, 9 great nephews, 20 great nieces, 1 great great niece. Art graduated from Harlandale High School in 1967. He served 9 ½ years in the U.S. Navy, completing his service as a Chaplin stationed in Rota, Spain. He studied at Quincy University, attended Our Lady of the Angels Seminary, and joined the Franciscan Friars at Sacred Heart Province in St. Louis. He studied at Catholic Theological Union in Hyde Park, Chicago, and was ordained a priest in 1985 at St. Joseph's Church in San Antonio. He was beloved by his parishioners at San Jose Mission, St. Alphonsus, and St. Patrick Church of Indianapolis. Through his sermons he inspired individuals to grow in their faith. In Padre Arturo's words: "I love my life and my work. My life has been exciting, and wonderful. I have many wonderful friends and God has been very good to me. I lived in Spain for four years, visited Portugal, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Holy Land, Morocco, Canary Islands, Azores and Mexico. I am interested in all people, different cultures, races, religions, and languages. My family has been my support and I am grateful and blessed that my mother is still alive. I love my brothers and sister, nieces and nephews, and my countless cousins. My friar community and parish community continue to nourish me and keep me excited about life and ministry. My constant reply to people who come to me for advise is, "Do all that you can with what you have, in the time that you have, in the place where you are now". Blessings y, "Paz y Todo Bien!". Fr. Arturo is now at peace in heaven celebrating with our Heavenly Father, his Franciscan brothers, and his relatives, who have gone before him. (His father, Socorro Rodriguez Ocampo; brother, Armando R. Ocampo; nephew, Paul Christopher Ocampo.) Uncle Art told us he was going to a better place, and his final request to us is that we pray, party and enjoy life. Visitation will begin Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at 3pm at San Alphonsus Catholic Church [1202 S. Zarzamora, SATX 78207] with a Rosary to be recited at 6pm and a funeral Mass to be held at 7pm. Services under the direction of Castillo Mission Funeral Home.

As soon as one book was finished she was ready for another. She loved to travel and was especially fond of cruises. Her favorite cruise was to Alaska in 2013. Mamo was loved by all who knew her, as she put other people's needs ahead of her own. She provided guidance and strength and will be deeply missed.
