TORIBIO SEGUNDO

TORIBIO SEGUNDO MISSION - Toribio Segundo, 67, of Mission, Texas, a good man, passed into the bosom of our Lord's love on Monday, October 14, 2013. Toribio served his country with pride and honor in the United States Air Force; he served in Vietnam and was a proud Veteran of our military forces. He retired from the Missouri Pacific railroad where he worked many years and as an engineer throughout south Texas and San Antonio. Toribio, known to many as "Chore", was born in Mission, Texas to Guadalupe Segundo and Antolina Tijerina Segundo, who preceded him in death. He is also preceded in death by his brothers Jose Guadalupe Jr., Hector (Peachy) and Carlos (Chale). Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 45 years, San Juanita Borrego.

In addition he is mourned by many nieces and nephews, friends of his children and grandchildren, friends of his brothers, cousins and his great aunts Maria and Ofelia and great uncle Pancho.
