Willie H. Barbosa

1930 - 2016 Obituary Condolences Flowers
December 26, 2016
Willie H. Barbosa entered into eternal rest at the age of 86 on December, 26, 2016. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife Sadako Barbosa, parents Manuel & Leonila Barbosa, brothers Joe & Samuel Barbosa, and sisters Otila Trevino and Carmen Garcia.

He is survived by his brother Paul Barbosa, children Kim(Ed) Lessard, Anita(Brad) Swenson, Michael(Mary) Barbosa, Edward(Claire) Barbosa, Sam(Cindy) Barbosa, Jim Barbosa, Lisa(Ray) Ochoa, 11 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, numerous nieces & nephews and many extended family members.

Willie served his country for 40 years as a firefighter (20 years in the USAF and 20 years Civil Service at Brooks AFB). During his service in the USAF he served his country in the Vietnam War. During his time in Vietnam, he was awarded the Airman Medal for rescuing a Vietnamese pilot from an overturned airplane that was sinking in the mud. He was also awarded the United Nations Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, and Vietnam Service Medal.

His most cherished joy was being surrounded by his friends and family. We will all miss his home cooking, especially his BBQ and enchiladas. He made everyone welcome in his home and always made them feel like family. He enjoyed watching the Dallas Cowboys and San Antonio Spurs, win or lose he was a dedicated fan. He was always a sharp dresser, his doctors all referred to him as their best dressed patient.

The family would like to thank Dr. Raul Gaona Jr., Dr. Luis Velez, Dr. Jawad Shaikh, Dr. Jaweed Sayeed and Sharawn Lopez from Jordan Home Health for always taking excellent care of our father.

Family will receive friends on Monday, January 9, 2017 at Trevino Funeral Home on Palo Alto Rd. from 5:00pm - 9:00pm with a Rosary to be recited at 7:00pm. On Tuesday, January 10, 2016 a procession will leave from Trevino Funeral Home on Palo Alto at 9:30am for a 10:00am Mass of the Resurrection at St. Leonards Catholic Church. A committal service with honors will follow at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in memory of Willie H Barbosa to St. Leonard's Catholic Church, 8510 S Zarzamora St, San Antonio, TX 78224.
