Antonio Nunez

December 26, 1943 — January 27, 2024

Antonio Nunez, Jr., 80, “Tony or Chito” as he was known to family, beloved father and spouse was called to his eternal resting place on January 27, 2024.   He entered this world on December 26, 1943 in Marfa, Texas, born to Antonio and Carmen Nunez.

Tony graduated from St. Mary’s Elementary School and Marfa High School.   He married his high school sweetheart, Betty Aguirre.  After retirement, his hobby became his passion.  Tony’s passion was working on cars and repairing them.  His specialty was doing brakes and alignments until he had fixed them perfectly, even laboring until midnight and making his customers happy.

He was preceded in death by his father, Antonio Nunez, Sr., and mother, Carmen Nunez and his eldest sister, Herminia Salcido. He is survived by his wife, Cindy Nunez, son Daniel Nunez, daughter Diana Nunez, son Rene Nunez and daughter-in-Law Lety Nunez.  He is also survived by his sister Estella (Pete) Quintela. He is also survived by his close friends Tim Turner, Fernando Sanchez whom he loved as sons, numerous friends and family in the community.  He is also survived by his beloved grandchildren Jami (Kris) Celaya, Joshua Turner, Sydney Turner, Ashton Nunez, McKenzie Nunez, and Briana Nunez.   He is also survived by his beloved great-grandchildren Daniel Colby Alvarado, Chrystian James Alvarado, Bastian Lucas Celaya, Gabriella Turner-Pearce, and Justus Turner.

In October of 1962, he married Beatrice Aguirre and they raised two boys and a girl that he dearly loved. In August of 2008, Antonio married Cindy Sotelo formerly of Marfa, Texas and resided happily in Alpine, Texas.

He was the project manager for Three T Fleet Tire Testers and Big Bend Fleet for the first part of his life. He finished his last part of his working career as a mechanic with Texas Department of Transportation from 1977 to 2003.

Antonio was a religious man and raised his family in the same manner.  He was a part-time musician and would play his guitar on his off time with friends after working extra hours at home as a mechanic in his garage behind his home. These gatherings created many great stories for our family.  He was the type of man that could not turn anyone down and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.   The community was very blessed to have someone like Antonio Nunez, Jr.
