Felipe Aguirre Sr.

August 23, 1930 — October 12, 2023

Seguin

Felipe Aguirre Sr., a beloved member of the community known for his hard work, generosity, and dedication to his family, passed away on October 12, 2023. He was born on August 23, 1930, in San Marcos, TX, to Aurelio and Petra Gallegos Aguirre.

Felipe's career spanned many years, beginning as a butcher at Dyess Meat Market. He later worked at Baenzingers and True Value Hardware before finding employment with the City of Seguin, where he eventually retired. Even after retirement, Felipe continued to support his family by working at Walmart and delivering food for Meals on Wheels. His entrepreneurial spirit shone through as well, as he owned, Aguirre’s Seguin Grocery Drive In store, Aguirre's Ballroom and Eloisa's Tamales restaurant – establishments that left an indelible mark on the Hispanic business community.

Family was always paramount for Felipe. He cherished spending time with his loved ones and played an active role in raising many of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Gathering everyone together for a barbecue was one of his favorite ways to create lasting memories.

Felipe's warm heart and supportive nature earned him the title of "Legend" among those who knew him best. He touched the lives of countless families in the surrounding neighborhoods through his kindness and generosity. Whether it was lending a helping hand or offering words of encouragement, Felipe was always there for others.

Felipe's memory will live on through his loving wife of 68 years, Eloisa Gutierrez Aguirre, and his children Anna Castillo, Ricky "Cuz" Aguirre (Diane), Felipe Aguirre Jr. (Doris), Isabel Aguirre Rodriguez, Gloria Estrada, Reynaldo Aguirre, and Roland Aguirre Sr. He is also survived by 32 grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.

Felipe Aguirre Sr.'s passion for life was evident in everything he did. When he wasn't spending quality time with his family, you would often find him enjoying his favorite hobbies, which included maintaining his cattle at the ranch, baseball, barbecuing, and constructing various objects. He was a Jack of all trades. He also had a deep love for fishing and playing the accordion – talents that brought joy to those around him.

In addition to leaving behind a grieving family, Felipe is preceded in death by his parents Aurelio and Petra Gallegos Aguirre, as well as his brothers Raymond Aguirre and Agapito Aguirre. His 1st son who was a twin was also called home before him.
