Corpus Christi - Ines Oliva, 91, passed away on November 10, 2020. He was born on April 2, 1929 to Zeferino Oliva and Hilaria Gutierrez Oliva in Kansas City, MO. He was the youngest of six children.
He worked for Dresser Macgobar Industries as a truck driver for 35+ years in the oil-well drilling services industry. True to his truck driving roots, he always drove his wife and his family to visit Olivas in Mexico and in other states, and to enjoy casinos. He dedicated himself to his hobbies of carpentry, crafts-woodworking, camping, traveling, playing poker, and reading.
He was the steady pillar of the Oliva family. He taught us the virtues of education and a strong work ethic as a way for his children to better their lives. He instilled love and respect for God and family.
God decided to call dad home on November 10th. He died peacefully in his home. He is preceded in death by his wife, Margarita Oliva; his niece, Susana Musella; grandson, Enrique M. Oliva; brothers, Maximo Oliva, Francisco Oliva; sisters, Crescencia Oliva Falcon, Cecilia Oliva Leon, Margarita Oliva Neri, and parents.
