Dagoberto proudly served his country as a U.S. Marine during the Vietnam War where he received a purple heart for his combat wounds in Vietnam. He eventually retired from UISD as a drug counselor. Dagoberto loved fishing, hunting, and the outdoors but most of all his family.

The family would like to express their utmost gratitude to the ICU Nurses at Doctor’s Hospital, Irene, Mercedes, Jeremy, and Tony for their care and dedication.

The family will be receiving guests on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, in the Angelus Chapel at Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Services will continue on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, at Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services, where the chapel doors open at 8:00 a.m. and the procession to the City Cemetery will depart at 10:00 a.m.

Dago - Rest in peace my old friend and student. You epitomized the old adage "Never judge a book by it cover"


Janet Miller posted on 1/10/23

Sandra and Familia: So sorry for your loss. Dago was such a good guy who really appreciated all the goodness in each and every person he touched. He was a genuine counselor for those who needed his strong shoulder and soft kind heart to hear their pain. I worked with Dago only a short time at the DEAR unit, of MHMR, years past, but I am certain he continued to be a loyal friend and support for those in his life. My deepest condolences and prayers for your family. Janet Q. Miller

My sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family of Dago Carmona. I became acquainted with Dago at TAMIU where he was my student. I quickly came to admire him and respect him. I salute his service in the military during the difficult time in our nation with the Vietnam war. Dago led an extra ordinary life and he had many talents, especially his ability to communicate with young people. Dago was always respectful, courteous, thoughtful and caring. May he rest in eternal peace. Cecilia Garza

My condolences to the family of Dago. He was a good friend and a great counselor. His ability to reach out to those struggling with addiction was amazing. He changed so many lives and helped countless families that needed help and direction. I am proud to have worked alongside him at various programs and eventually at UISD where he made a tremendous impact with students and families. He leaves a legacy of change and healing to those he worked with. I will miss his sense of humor and his laugh. Rest In Peace my friend.
