Obituary

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.

The family will be receiving guests on Thursday, April 4, 2019, from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services.  A Holy Rosary will be recited at 7:00 pm.  Funeral services will be held on Friday, April 5, 2019, at San Martin de Porres Catholic Church.  A funeral mass will be celebrated at 9:00 am.  Interment will follow to the Calvary Catholic Cemetery.

Dear Gracie, please accept my heartfelt condolences on both your parents. I met your mother about 2 years ago, as they used to like to go dancing, and were friends with my parents. My mother introduced me to her and I asked about you. She told me that you lived close to Houston. I hope that you remember me of when we were in elementary school. I had not seen them for a year because my mother had a stroke last year, and it has also taken a toll on the family. They have not gone out anymore like they used to when they would visit with your parents. I will keep all your family in my thoughts and prayers. I am sorry that I was unable to visit with you during this difficult time. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Your Childhood friend, Esmeralda Rodriguez Hereford

I am speechless. When I found out about Tia Tona, my heart skipped a beat. Now a piece of my family heart has died. So many laughs, so many good times,so many memories and so much family love. Everyone is a treasured gift. However like you say not even death has separated them for they are still together.
