Obituary

Anthony S. Reyna, known to his friends and family as "Tony" or "Opa" (Grandfather) went to be with the Lord he loved so dearly, family, and friends who have passed before him on Friday, October 6th, 2018 at the age of 86. He was an outgoing and God-fearing man who was a husband, father, stepfather, grandfather, friend, and very proudly, a Marine in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was known to everyone as friendly and always ready to engage someone in conversation about God, politics, sports, and his time in the military.

Tony and his wife Waltraud "Wally" had just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in September 2018 and loved each other dearly and enjoyed many years of happiness, faith and family. He was proud of his children and grandchildren and always attended family celebrations, many athletic games the grandchildren played in, volunteering in the community, staying busy with his wife, and always attending church services and bible study groups.
Tony was always very proud that he served his country as a member of the U.S. Marines and retired as a Colonel. He lived by the marine motto, "Semper Fidelis" (Always Faithful).

He credited his military service with changing his life course and putting him on the right path toward a college education and rewarding career. He graduated from St. Mary's University in 1957 with a bachelor's degree, and then went on to a productive career with the Small Business Administration. He also credits his military service with keeping him on a health-conscious course in life and helped him gain a great appreciation for exercise and food choices throughout his life.
He also enjoyed serving on the board of the Salvation Army, volunteering at polling stations with the elections department, and educating young adults on responsible and safe driving.

Tony was also a man of great faith who always spoke passionately about our Lord and was always first to volunteer to say a heartfelt prayer or blessing before a meal or special occasion. Tony always told his family members when parting ways: "God loves you and so do I." Now we get to tell him that "God loves you and so do we".

He will be sorely missed by his wife, Wally, his three sons – Anthony, Michael and Vincent, grandchildren, step-children, step-grandchildren, nieces/nephews, other family members and countless friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother Maria San Miguel, his father, his sister Josefina Saenz, and an infant son Thomas Arthur.

Visitation and prayer service will take place at Porter Loring Chapel on McCullough Ave at 6:30 pm on Sunday, October, 21st.
Graveside Military Honors service will take place at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery at 10:30 A.M. on Monday, October, 22nd, which would have been his 87th birthday.
