Armando "Mandito" Flores Jr.

El Paso - Armando "Mandito" Flores Jr., age 49, passed away Monday, March 15, 2021. Mando was a family man: a great son, brother, husband, father, uncle and friend. Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Joanna; children, Jaylynn Rose, Armando "Dito" III, Adalynn, Matthew; two granddaughters; parents, Armando Sr. and Irene Flores; sisters, Hilda, Linda (Ozone); brothers, Andy (Sammie), Stevie; nieces, Amber, Christina, Jennifer, Sage; nephews, AJ, Sonny, Cruz. He will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that he considered close family.

Mando was a 1990 Riverside High School Honor Society graduate. He was a great athlete earning All-District as both a football and baseball player. He continued his love of the game playing with El Paso's greatest softball teams: Gold Sox, Jalapeños, Dukes, Ratz-Wizards and many more great teams. Mando was also an original founding member of Poderoso Car Club. He was employed at Southeastern Freight Lines for 11 years and was a member of Cristo Rey Catholic Church where he was an ACTS brother.

Mandito was such a loving and caring person that he left a great impression on anyone he came across. There wasn't a place you could go that someone didn't know him. He was always willing to lend a hand and never asked for anything in return. This is why he leaves many with a broken heart, but we will not forget him.

Mandito's passion was spending time with his family and friends. He loved hanging out at the park, having cookouts and drinking a Bud Light while listening to K-Love or The Fox Oldies on a Sunday afternoon.

THAT'S HOW WE ROLL…YO, MANDO

Armando ""Mandito"" Flores Jr., de 49 años, falleció el lunes 15 de marzo del 2021. Mando fue un padre de familia: nieto, hermano, esposo, padre, tío y amigo. Quedan para apreciarlo en memoria su esposa Joanna; sus hijos Jaylynn Rose, Armando ""Dito"" III, Adalynn, Matthew; sus dos nietas, sus padres, Armando Sr. e Irene Flores; sus hermanas: Hilda y Linda (Ozone) y sus hermanos: Andy (Sammie) y Stevie.

Mando se graduó en 1990 de la Sociedad de Honor de Riverside High School. Fue un gran atleta que obtuvo All-District como jugador de fútbol y béisbol. Continuó su amor por el juego jugando con los mejores equipos de softbol de El Paso: Gold Sox, Jalapeños, Dukes, Ratz-Wizards y muchos más grandes equipos. Mando también fue miembro fundador original de Poderoso Car Club. Trabajó en Southeastern Freight Lines durante 11 años y fue miembro de la Iglesia Católica Cristo Rey, donde era hermano de ACTS. Mandito era una persona tan cariñosa y gentil que dejaba una gran impresión en cualquiera que se encontrara. No había un lugar al que pudieras ir donde alguien no lo conocieran. Siempre estuvo dispuesto a echar una mano y nunca pidió nada a cambio. Por eso deja a muchos con el corazón roto, pero no lo olvidaremos. La pasión de Mandito era pasar tiempo con su familia y amigos. Le encantaba pasar el rato en el parque, hacer comidas al aire libre y beber Bud Light mientras escuchaba K-Love o The Fox Oldies un domingo por la tarde. That's how we roll... YO, MANDO. El velorio se realizará el viernes 26 de marzo del 2021 de 5:00 p.m. a 8:00 p.m. con el rosario a las 6:00 p.m. en Mt. Carmel Funeral Home, en el 1755 N. Zaragosa 79936.

Not sure what to say?

Mandito today was another hard day for us. You were taken to your final resting place. It was nice but different. I hope it turned out the way you wanted. Dad and Dito made sure you had your Braves cap with you. I bought you some red roses. The color was so bright and beautiful They looked awesome. It was a cold and slightly windy morning but it felt nice. Ozone wore shorts cuz he knew you would have too. You were surrounded by family and friends. Everyone has so many great memories...

Mandito 1 month ago today the world as I knew it was shattered. Today I still can't believe your gone. I am still in shock. So many times I've tried to reach out to you by text or a phone call only to realize I can't. I have so many unanswered questions. I am still going through so many different emotions. Some make me angry , some make me laugh but all make me so sad and heartbroken . I find myself talking to you everyday now. When I'm driving I swear people think I'm crazy, but It's...
