Obituary

Our Dad went home, after over a year for him asking, Dad went home. Richard Hernandez Reyes, 95, past on the early morning of November 8th. He spent the last 2 years at the Bronte Nursing Home.
Dad was born on December 22, 1924 in Mavrick, Texas in Runnels County to Pedro and Elvira Hernandez Reyes. He is preceded in death by his parents, three sisters, Carlotta Olivas, Maria Alicia Minjarez, Tomasa Minjarez, Fela Reyes and one brother, Robert. Also, his wife Aurora Basquez Reyes. One son in law and a daughter in law have also preceded him.
He is survived by his youngest brother, Benjamin Reyes, six children, Olga Torres, Richard Reyes Jr, Tillie Bryan, Mark Reyes, Cindy Reyes, and Michael Reyes. Also, sixteen grandchildren and numerous great grand children.
Dad worked a farm in Rotan, Texas until he jointed the Marines in 1943 in El Paso, Texas. He did his short basic training in San Diego, California before shipping out into the Pacific. His first stop over was New Caledonia then the Solomon Islands before going to Guam. From there, Dad went to Iwo Jima. As with many Marines, Dad was not one to talk too much about what he did or experienced. We were just glad he survived when so many of his brothers in the Pacific didn’t.
After the surrender of Japan, Dad was part of the Occupied Japan where he spent several months. He got an Honorable Discharge on Jan. 14, 1946 as a Corporal. He moved to Olton, Texas where he married and worked on a farm. As the children grew older, they all moved to Bronte, Texas where he worked several years at Allied Gas. But, Dad went back to doing what he loved best, he worked for the Schwertner farms. After that, he worked a while at the Bronte Nursing Home where he has lived the past two years.
Shaffer Funeral Home will handle the burial in Bronte Cemetery next to his wife, Aurora.

Dad, I know you are at peace now. I am so sorry for what you went through. I know you were ready, but this journey was not what we wanted for you. I am sorry that we were not able to be there for you on your last day on this earth. I feel there is no closure. No opportunity to hold your hand or kiss your sweet face. It is like a bad dream. Thank you for being a wonderful father and human being. I miss you Pop. Sorry it took a while to write this. I wasn't quite ready to accept what happened, even though we were told to expect this. God bless you, dad. Rest in peace.
