Obituary for David Richard Paredes, Ph.D.

November 30, 1946 - April 10, 2018
San Antonio, Texas | Age 71


David Richard Paredes, Ph.D., age 71, passed from this world on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 in San Antonio, TX. He had been struggling with cancer for over a year. He was born on November 30, 1946 in Las Cruces, New Mexico. He was preceded in death by his parents Frederick Paredes and Molly Moya Paredes.

David attended New Mexico State University where he began a life- long passion for social justice issues. David continued his involvement in social justice through his work at The University Catholic Center in Austin, where he began many life- long friendships, including a friendship which blossomed into a forty- two-year marriage with Katherine Barry. Later, working for the Catholic Diocese of El Paso, David coordinated bus trips, with Texas Cure, for families in El Paso wishing to visit loved ones in prison in the San Antonio area. David received a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from The University of Texas in Austin under the mentorship of his dear friend and teacher, Dr. Kevin Miller. David then taught at Texas A & M University. David was perhaps most proud of his roles as husband, father for his beloved daughter, Teresa and, grandfather for Oliver and Kate.

David is survived by his wife Katherine Barry Paredes, his daughter, Teresa Tribett (Mark), his grandson Oliver Tribett, his granddaughter, Katelin Tribett and his siblings: Ronald Paredes (Nancy), Patsy Nevarez (Joe), Olivia Newfield (Steve), Elaine Paredes and Mark Paredes.
