Guadalupe "Lupe" Jones Samaniego, age 77, died peacefully last Thursday in his home surrounded by his loving family. The owner of Samaniego Construction, Lupe was a carpenter who found great satisfaction and success building everything from birdhouses with his grandchildren, to home additions and commercial construction. As a boy, he helped in his father's construction business, learning the importance of integrity and the Golden Rule. He carried this with him later as an employee of Kelly Field, where he made many long-time friends and acquaintances. He was a good man who placed utmost importance on his family and home, and will be greatly missed. Guadalupe was preceded in death by his parents, Hipolito and Grace Samaniego and a brother, Patrick. He is survived by his wife, Stella C. Samaniego, sons Patrick Samaniego and James Sherrod, daughter Laura Perry-Samaniego, Daughters in-law Terry Samaniego and Lenora Perry-Samaniego. He will be especially missed by grandchildren Becca, Samuel, James, Grace, and Gabrielle who adored their "Popo." He also leaves his brother Paul Samaniego, and sisters Dolores Samaniego Kaznowski and Diana Samaniego Montoya, as well as numerous nieces and nephews whom he loved very much.
