In loving memory of Justin R. Morales he passed away unexpectedly on September 28, 2013 at the age of 26. His idea of a perfect day was outdoors doing the things he loved such as roping, hunting or fishing. And boy could he light up a room with his infectious smile. He loved to drive his old truck with his dog Sadie. One of his favorite spots was driving to Cienega Creek looking for that perfect Coues deer. He will be dearly missed by family members, friends, hunting buddies and the cowboy community. He is survived by his father, Jose "Sonny" Morales (Pam) and mother, Patricia Gregory (Shane). He also leaves his sister, DeShanna Vasquez (Marco "Bungi") and nephews, DeMarco, Alejandro, Cesar and niece, Nadya; brother, Jose S. Morales; niece, Penelope; stepsister, Cara Reidhead (Dallas) and nephews, Jhett and Haizen; grandparents, Godparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends. Memorial Services will be held on Monday, October 7, 2013 at MARTINEZ FUNERAL CHAPELS beginning at 8:30 a.m., followed by 10:30 a.m. Mass at San Augustine Cathedral with graveside service at South Lawn Cemetery.
