Guadalupe M. Luna Sr. was called home to the Lord where he joined his beloved wife Maria and his three children, Guadalupe Luna, Jr., Henry (Chris) Luna, and Lucy (David) Gallegos. Sunrise to Sunset for Guadalupe are: December 12, 1933 to August 28, 2023 – 89 years of age.
Guadalupe was a hard-working man. He worked for the city of Seguin for 13 years and for the Texas Highway department from where he retired after 29 years of service and from where he received numerous certificates of job excellence. Some of Dad's favorite past times in his younger days were to go dancing with Mom and with other couples at local dance halls, and, just spending family time at barbecue cookouts. Dad would practice catching and hitting baseballs with his three boys and his surviving daughters fondly recall Dad walking them to school and buying them dolls to play with.
His many grand children have fond memories of Grandpop as well. The grandkids looked forward to Grandpop coming home from work because they knew he would have some goodies in his lunchbox for them. Champ (Frank Torres, III) lovingly recalls how Grandpop taught him how to spell the word "yellow". There are many other fond memories of Grandpop as well from his other grandchildren.
In addition to his wife and three children who preceded him in death, Guadalupe was also preceded in death by his parents, Donaciano and Juanita Luna; his brothers, Frank (Kiko) Luna, and Felix (Guero) Luna; sisters, Frances Menchaca and Florinda (Polla) Luna, as well as numerous nephews.
Left to cherish his memory are his brother and sister, Tony Luna (Dalia) and Maria Moreno.
