Emilio Ovalle Villarreal
September 30, 1939-August 22, 2018

Our beloved Emilio Ovalle Villarreal, age 78, of San Antonio, died Wednesday, August 22, 2018. He was born to Fannie and Joe Villarreal and was the fourth child of ten children.

In 1958, he graduated from Fox Tech Vocational High School. In 1962, he married his high school sweetheart, Irma Martinez, and shared 55 years of marriage before passing. Shortly after marriage, he joined the National Guard and received his honorable discharge in 1967.

He worked as an architectural draftsman for 15 years at Ray Ellison and as a national catastrophe insurance adjuster for the next 20 years until retirement. He was a 32nd degree Mason and belonged to the Ben Hur Shriners, Davy Crocket Lodge and the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.

He loved to fish and to golf and would often say they were the only 2 reasons to get up at 5 a.m.! Emilio was a diehard Cowboys fan and lived to watch them play live and on TV. He will be lovingly remembered for his eternal optimism, ready laugh, witty jokes, smooth dancing, keen intellect, mouth-watering brisket and potato salad, and endless patience.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Jose and Fannie Villarreal; and brother, Joe Villarreal.

He is survived by his wife, Irma M. Villarreal; son, Emilio M. Villarreal (Coral); daughter, Denise Ana True (David); grandchildren, Joshua Villarreal, Kasandra Villarreal, Alana M. True, and Sydney A. True; four brothers; four sisters; and numerous nieces and nephews.
