Arnulfo A. Tamez, 77, was called to be with our heavenly Father on Sunday, January 20th.
Nufo, as he was affectionately known, was born in Comales, Tamaulipas, Mexico and proudly became a U.S. Citizen in 1996. He was the manager of H.R.S. Loan Company and owner of Patricia’s Picture Frames.
He was a loving, compassionate, and kindhearted man and anyone who met him was never a stranger. Nufo was an avid reader who loved music, dancing, traveling, fishing, and spending time in his beloved backyard cottage.
Nufo’s greatest passion was his family and the friends who he called brothers.
He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Esperanza Tamez, daughters Patricia Tamez-Munson (Bobby R.) and Diana Tamez-Walters, grandchildren Katherine, Austin and Nikole Munson, and his four-legged companions, Tango & Yoshi. Siblings include Porfirio (Anabella†) Caballero, Thelma (Otilo†) Benavides, Hortencia (Hilario†) Cardenas, and Adriana (Manuel†) Morales along with numerous nieces and nephews and countless friends.
Arnulfo was preceded in death by his son, Arnulfo P. Tamez, son-in-law, Jose E. “Joey” Muñoz, and parents Arnulfo and Maria C. Tamez.
Visitation services will be Friday, January 25th from 5 pm to 9 pm at the Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services, a rosary will be recited at 7 pm. A private church service will be held at a later date.
Should family and friends desire, a contribution can be made to The American Kidney Fund in memory of Arnulfo A. Tamez.
