Hector Holguin, Sr.

January 20, 1956 — November 26, 2021

Alpine, Texas

On November 26, 2021, Alpine lost the greatest man, son, father, husband, grandfather, brother anyone could ask for.  Hector M. Holguin, 65, of Alpine, Texas was a tough Marine who fought and gave his all, he went peacefully while surrounded by his loving family.

Hector was born on January 20, 1956.  He is the son of Victoria Molinar Holguin of Alpine, Texas.  Hector helped his mother raise his four siblings.  He then enlisted into the United States Marine Corps on March 20, 1974, to serve his country. Hector was a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps when he first met his future wife and love of his life.  He was the best Man wearing his dress blues in his brother’s wedding, and she was the Bride’s Maid in the Summer of 77’.  He would later marry and court the love of his life for 42 Years, Eva Maria Saenz Holguin.  The family, along with many friends, have lost an amazing man, the mold was broken with Hector. His passions were his family first and foremost, outdoor activities, hard work, teaching his kids and grandkids life lessons, and being a big volunteer and supporter of Scouting with his Sons and Grandsons.  Hector loved cooking for family and lived to make others happy, be it by helping his family with projects, or through his community service.  He was always dependable and a hardworking man.  He was one of the most selfless individuals and did so much for his family, friends, and strangers who were in need.

Hector started his 37-year career with West Texas Utilities (WTU), now known as American Electric Power (AEP) company. Always helping to keep the power on for Alpine, Marathon, and the surrounding area.  He would always make sure the banners seen around town for upcoming events in his beloved hometown of Alpine were up.  He always kept his boots on just in case he was called out. He was looking forward to retiring soon to spend more time with his family, especially the younger grandkids, who were his pride and joy.

His sense of humor, love of life, and smile will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife Eva, daughter Adela, son Hector, Jr. and wife Lizet; sons Daniel, and Vicente Holguin.  Grandsons Arnel Isandre Holguin, Roman Diego Holguin, Daniel Hector Holguin, and Granddaughters-Isabela Holguin and Catalaya Holguin.

Mother Victoria Molinar Holguin, Sisters, Teresa Holguin, Cecilia McGuire, and Maria “Kiki” Holguin.  Many nieces, nephews, and an endless number of friends.  Hector knew no strangers.
