Jun 15 1922 - Jan 01 2010

Mr. Teodosio “Tocho” (Guelo Chief) González, Jr. of Eagle Pass, Texas, passed away in the company of his family on January 1, 2010, in Plano, Texas. He was born on June 15, 1922, in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico to Manuel Teodosio and Andrea De Los Santos González. On October 18, 1952, he married the love of his live, Graciela Dora Trevino, with whom he shared 51 wonderful years of marriage. When he was not tending to his appliance retail business, Border Sales Distributors, he could be found entertaining friends and family playing the guitar. Although he thoroughly enjoyed his music and socializing, he always put his family first. Guelo was a loving and caring husband and father. He was an avid reader and always stressed the importance of education to his children. Due to his constant encouragement, support, and hard work, he provided a college education for all three of his children. He was a man of few words who led by example. He always did the right thing and no matter how difficult things were he always found the bright side of any situation. Guelo Chief cared more for others well being than himself. Even through his later years when his body was fatigued and he was confined to a bed, he still maintained a sharp mind and great wit. He always found a way to make you smile. He had a contagious laugh and could always reference the date to an anniversary or birthday of his loved ones. Guelo was a selfless man; he never would talk about himself or complain. He would always ask how you were doing; he would follow up and ask you about a recent event he heard, or ask what you were up too, how your family was, ask if they were okay. Guelo was a sincere man. He never wanted to be a burden to anyone and he never was. Guelo was full of love and cared so much for everyone around him. He was a great teacher and grandfather who shared his knowledge of checkers with is grandchildren, would always tell you he loved you, and you could always tell how deeply he meant it. Guelo taught us all lessons just by observing how he lived. He was peaceful, loving, and sweet to all around him. He had a heart and mind stronger than most and he was an amazing Grandfather to his family. He is survived by his sons and daughters-in-law, Cesar and Catherine González of Plano, Texas; Manuel Teodosio III and Judy González of Sugar Land, Texas; daughter and son-in-law, Graciela D. and Raymond Kimbrell of Murphy, Texas; and eight grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Graciela in 2003, and two sisters and three brothers.
