Conrado Montemayor, 87, went to join our Lord and his loved ones in Heaven, Saturday, March 30, 2019, surrounded by his family.
Conrado was a humble man of great faith and integrity who lived his life accordingly. As a founding member of the San Martin de Porres and St. Vincent de Paul parishes, where he served as a Eucharistic minister, he served both the church and its community with great fidelity. He demonstrated a lifelong commitment to the less fortunate and charitable causes. A graduate of Martin HS, Conrado was an active member of many organizations such as FFA, ROTC, Future Teachers, track, and baseball. He was commanding Lieutenant Colonel for Martin High School ROTC Battalion his senior year in 1951. He was a great baseball player, known by those who played alongside him as “The Natural”. He was signed by The Apaches, a minor league club, and was later drafted by the Cleveland Indians, though he was not able to commit. His greatest accomplishment, however, was being the great family man that he was. Conrado was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He is remembered by his family for his love of music (guitar), witty sense of humor, and staunch family values. Over the years, he fostered a sense of love for family and faith in the lord that will forever define his legacy. He was preceded in death by his lovely wife Antonia Montemayor only two weeks prior, and they are now reunited in Heaven where together they will celebrate 67 years of marriage, having never spent an anniversary apart. Conrado’s laughter, selflessness, and unwavering support for his family will be deeply missed.
Mr. Montemayor was preceded in death by his beloved wife Antonia Montemayor; his granddaughter, Lesley Guerra and grandson, David Montemayor, III.
Left to cherish his memory are her children, Gracie (Neo) Cantu of Sugarland, Texas, Conrado (Mary) Montemayor of Houston, Texas, Stella Guerra of Laredo, Texas, Veronica (Danny) Zamarripa of Katy, Texas and David Montemayor (Leticia Medina) of Laredo, Texas; 13 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren; siblings, Irma Taute of San Antonio, Texas and George Montemayor of Houston, Texas.
