Agustin Gamez (1959-2023) Age 64 of Dallas, Texas, Entered rest in Mcallen, TX Nov 11, 2023
Agustin was born in Guemez, Tamaulipas Sep 24, 1959, to Ramona "Mona" Rivas and Manuel Gamez. School was not an option for young Agustin growing up so he spent his younger years helping his grandfather with "the rancho" before he embarked on his journey for the American Dream at 17. Through many trials and tribulations his hard work ethic and "can do" spirit carried him from Florida, the East Coast, and Indiana. On a whim, and with a few dollars in his pocket he decided Texas was his next destination, a decision that would last a lifetime.
Agustin met the love of his life Orfa in 1977 at a church service in Dallas. The two were inseparable. Excited to start their lives together, the two were married in 1980 in Dallas, Texas.
Agustin and Orfa couldn't wait to start a family of their own, and their children meant the world to them. Sons, Agustin "Johnny' Gamez and Manuel "Meno" Gamez. Daughter, Amanda "Mandy" Gamez.
Though he loved talking about religion, inventing, and mechanics, Agustin's favorite role was that of a grandpa. He treasured his time with his grandkids and loved being their grandpa. Grandchildren Samantha, Stephanie (Nicole), Jennifer, Amanda Marie, and Victor.
Agustin is survived by his mother Ramona, brother Eleazar; sisters Martha, Maria Esther and Silvia
Message from the Family:
Pa will always be remembered for his determination and strength and the way he always "figured it out". We'll always imagine him saying "The Holy Spirit is with you" and "It's going to be ok". We couldn't have asked for a better Dad and will miss him every day. Apa, I'll forever look for you in the crowd, you'll live on through my eyes and resonate through my heart and mind till my last breath.
His place of rest will be Royse City Cemetery in Royse City, Texas
