RUIZ Sr., Pete Charles|
08/19/1925 - 08/24/2014
Our beloved father was called to be with our Lord on Sunday, August 24. He was a loving, caring, and generous man, with his heart devoted to his family. He was an avid fisherman, true outdoorsman, lifetime master chef, and a huge football fan.
He was preceded in death by his parents, three of his siblings, and the mother of his children.
He is survived by his daughters, Gloria Valdez and Gina Lee Arocha (Mike); son, Pete Ruiz, Jr. (Kym); his six grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild, many nephews and nieces, and his very dear friend, Jo Crist.
Special thanks to the first responders, the staff at Brackenridge Hospital, and to everyone who has sent their prayers and condolences to the family.
Mr. Ruiz will lie in state on Friday, August 29, 2014, at Mission Funeral Home, 1615 E. Cesar Chavez. Viewing begins at 1pm and Rosary begins at 6pm. This will conclude his service.
