Noe A. Esparza

(12/21/1945 – 12/15/2022)

Noe Adolfo Esparza, 76, went to his heavenly home on Thursday, December 15, 2022 after courageously battling cancer. Noe was a faithful man who loved the Lord, his family, and community. He was surrounded by loved ones who will honor his legacy by living life to the fullest and cherishing their memories of him. Noe’s devotion to his family and friends brought peace, joy, and comfort to his life.

Noe was born to Jesus Esparza Sr. and Dora Carmona Esparza in Laredo, Texas on December 21, 1945.  He is survived and will be dearly missed by his wife Brenda Marie Esparza; his children Noe Nicholas Esparza and Natalie Ann Esparza; his step-children Jennifer Stacy Castillo, Leslie Ann Mata (Joe), and Hector Renato Ruiz; grandchildren Josiah Noe Esparza and Nevayah Joy Esparza; niece Mary Nell Sanchez; nephews Jerry Sanchez and Larry Sanchez; brothers & sisters-in-law, Irma Esparza, Teresa Cox (Denny+), Luis Martinez (Argelia), Roberto Martinez, (Rosemary), Richard Martinez, (Rosie+), Chester Martinez, and George Martinez (Karen); many cousins, aunts, uncles and lifelong friends. He is preceded in death by his sister Dora Alicia Sanchez, and brothers Jorge Esparza and Jesus Esparza III.

In 1965, Noe graduated from Martin High School and later received the Honor of being named a “Tiger Legend”, for his contribution to music as a skilled and talented vocalist, composer, and recording artist. His musical achievements led to his induction into the Tejano Root Hall of Fame. Noe was the lead vocalist for several bands: The Royal T’s, The Dial Tones, The Rondels, and The Fabolous Dells. His most recognized songs were “Lo Mucho Que Te Quiero”, “Bonita”, “Destrosado”, “Aqui”, and “Mighty Man of Jesus”. In 2010, Noe recorded his last album – a tribute to South Texas Tejano Legends.

Noe served in the Texas National Guard during wartime and was a proud veteran in the American Legion Post 59. Noe retired in 2002 from AT&T after 33 years of loyal service. His passion to entertain and produce music continued throughout his life, where he played at weddings and other social events in the community. His life was filled with lasting memories of these gatherings, and they will be cherished by everyone who experienced them. His enthusiastic spirit and passion for creating music will be sorely missed.

Noe is blessed with many who love him and are grateful that he is finally at peace. With his passing, we are vividly reminded of how precious it is to live in the moment, and enjoy the things that bring you the most happiness. We will miss him every day and he will forever remain in our hearts and memories.
