Obituary

Al Guevara was called home to be with our Lord on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at the age of 89. Al was a lifelong resident of San Antonio, Texas.

In Al's early years, he graduated from Tech High School and joined the U.S. Navy. After serving in the Navy for two years, he went on to become a successful, self-employed businessman. He operated and managed his own plumbing company and later G G & G General Contracting Company. Al was a member of the Safari International Club. He was an avid hunter and was thrilled to game hunt in Africa, Alaska, and numerous other exotic locations. On many of those hunting expeditions, he acquired trophies of which he was very proud. When he wasn't hunting, he enjoyed traveling the world with his wife Olga. Together they visited a total of 52 foreign countries. They enjoyed many years of travel with their dear friends Msgr. Lawrence J. Stuebben and Bro. Bill McCarthy, S.M.

Al was preceded in death by his father, mother, and two brothers. He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Olga G. Guevara; a son, Gerard "Jerry" Guevara; sister, Esther Gomez; as well as several nieces and nephews.

His family is thankful for the care Al received during his last months of life. They would specifically like to thank Addie Vaughn for her kind and gentle care, as well as the wonderful staff at Christus Sister Mary Hospice Center.
