1951 - 2021
Porter Loring Mortuary McCullough
1101 McCullough Ave.
San Antonio, TX

Ernest Acevedo Jr. was born in San Antonio, Texas on August 23, 1951. He spent his formative years learning the value of hard work, helping his father, uncles, and cousins at the Terminal Produce Market.

Ernest attended Thomas Jefferson High School where he met Diana Castañon. They were married on July 30,1969 and he would spend the rest of his life with her. They went on to have three sons. He worked his way through college and graduated from St. Mary's Law School in 1976. He founded his own practice with virtually no connections in the legal world and found success with his strong work ethic, geniality, charisma, and kindness.

Ernest spent the next 45 years building his practice and cementing his reputation as an honest and respected member of the legal community. In 1994, his eldest son, Ernest III, joined him in private practice. For the last 27 years Ernest was proud to partner with his son and passed on his legal knowledge and expertise to him. Ernest took great satisfaction from having helped thousands of individuals who needed assistance through the years. He was also a founding member of the Mexican American Bar Association.

In 2009, Ernest was appointed as Judge to the newly created County Court 14, where he focused his efforts on helping defendants who appeared before him. He believed deeply in rehabilitation and giving guidance to those who were heading down the wrong path.

Ernest was a positive force amongst his family and friends. He was always smiling and was known for his generosity. An avid golfer, Ernest was blessed to have played countless rounds with his father, sons, grandchildren, and many golfing buddies. One of his greatest pleasures was traveling with family and friends. He loved visiting new places and experienced many of the wonderful things the world has to offer. Ernest's professional achievements were vast, but his greatest accomplishment was his family. He never missed an opportunity to express his love for his wife or praise the accomplishments of his children.

Ernest Acevedo Jr. passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, July 6, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ernesto and Olivia Ruiz Acevedo; his brother Hector and his sister Sylvia. He is survived by his beloved wife, Diana; his sons Ernest III (Connie), Steve and Michael; his grandchildren, Ernest IV, Victoria, Andres and Alejandro; his siblings, Elda De La Garza (Guillermo), Gracie Esquivel (Tony), Olinda Cisneros (Johnny), Anna Franco (Roy), Hector Acevedo (Sherri), Oscar Acevedo, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and many loving friends.

My sincere condolences to the Acevedo Family. My mother was Ernesto Sr.'s 1st cousin. They were born and raised in Sabinas Nuevo Leon Mexico. Although I did not know Ernesto Jr. personally, my mother did and he was gracious enough to assist her with her will even though this was not his area of law. I have always thought that was very nice of him to have done that for her. May Ernesto Jr. Rest in Peace.

My deepest condolences to the Acevedo family. I had the privilege of attending grade school with Earnest , he was always the nice person in the group and no matter what the topic of conversation he always had a smile on his face. We kept in touch seasonally , met several times at his office of practice , played golf in a tournament, Earnest never changed , remained the same nice , peaceful and mild manner person. Only the Lord knows the when , how and why we are taken. May the family find peace , understanding and comfort in knowing that Earnest is in a better place. Blessings !!
