Alexander “Alex” Aguirre Sr., 88, of Kerrville, TX passed from this life into his heavenly home a humble man and a humble servant on January 7, 2023 in Boerne, TX.
He was born in Gonzalez, TX on May 3, 1934 to parents, Geronimo and Elvira (Morales) Aguirre. Never shying away from work at an early age he shined shoes to gain the understanding of the value of a dollar. He instilled in his children to never be afraid of work, to treat others with respect, be grateful and always tell the truth. He was a believer of enjoying the simple things life had to offer, to share a smile and to be happy. Alex never complained, his grandchildren and great grandchildren brought him so much joy. He shared many memorable moments with them each one of them was his pride and joy. Alex was the life of the party, he always had his dancing shoes on and if you got the chance to dance with him it was an honor. Alex and Oralia danced through life together for 67 years, never missing a beat.
Alex was a daddy, grandpa, uncle, neighbor and friend to many. He had a humorous personality leaving his family with many gifts and life advice, the most important to “Be happy with what you do.”
We will look forward to when we can all be together again, but for now we will live our lives just as he taught us, SIMPLE. His last words, “Ay, diosito! Come and take me home.”
He is preceded in death by his daughter Inez, granddaughter Clarissa, grandson Naythan, brother Sylvestre Aguirre and sister Anita Aguirre.
Those left to carry on his legacy include his beloved wife of 67 years Oralia Aguirre, daughters Barbara Salinas and husband Juan of Fredericksburg, TX and Patricia Murrell and husband Steve of Katy, TX; son Alex Aguirre, Jr. of Corpus Christi as well as numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren and his silbings, Benjamin Aguirre, Joe Silvas, Peggy de la Pena and Johnny Silvas.
