Richard Rivera Obituary
May 11, 1938 - January 9, 2019
The patriarch of our family, Richard Rivera, Sr., was called home by our Lord on January 9, 2019, at the age of 80. He was born on May 11, 1938 to the late Romulo and Maria Rivera in San Antonio, Texas. Richard served in the United States Navy for 6 years, the United States Army Reserves for 4 years, and retired with 30 years of service as a pneudraulics mechanic from Civil Service at Kelly Air Force Base. He especially enjoyed fishing. He also enjoyed watching western movies and sports games-especially the Dallas Cowboys. A man of many talents, he also loved to sing, dance, and was an excellent musician, carpenter and handy man. He is reunited in heaven with his parents and siblings Mary Jesse Rivera, and Rogelio Rivera. Richard's legacy will live on in the hearts of his loving wife of 59 years Mary Lou Rivera; children Mary Ellen Munoz (Richard), Richard Rivera Jr. (Veronica), and Linda Gallegos (Michael); 9 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; 9 siblings; and numerous extended family and friends.
