Obituary for Ignacio "Nacho" Escobedo

September 3, 1953 - May 22, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 65


Ignacio "Nacho" Escobedo, age 65, passed away (after a hard-fought battle our beloved brother finally succumbed to cancer) on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. He was born in San Antonio to Louis and Angelina (Alejos) Escobedo. Nacho was a CHRISTIAN and employed as an aircraft mechanic/technician/supervisor for 32yrs at Randolph AFB and Kelly AFB. He loved to read fiction and history and enjoyed watching Ancient Aliens and supporting the Dallas Cowboys and the San Antonio Spurs! He was a very smart individual, earning his Associates from San Antonio College. He chose not to further his college career but to enter the aircraft maintenance field. He excelled in this endeavor and received numerous awards from his superiors. He was even chosen to be an instructor at one point in his career because of his in-depth knowledge of repair on Air Force specialty aircraft. He was a healthy person and enjoyed his five days- a- week gym workouts. One would never have imagined he would develop cancer. His brothers and sisters and friends were horrified and sadden by his demise. Our hearts are sad and broken. Our love for Nacho is enormous and has no end. The Escobedo family is thankful and grateful for all the prayers, support and love for our beloved brother, Ignacio. Thank you for helping us celebrate his ascension up to be with our Lord in Heaven.
He was preceded in death by his parents. Ignacio is survived by his wife of 25 years, Sonja Escobedo; sons, Gabriel A. Escobedo and Jacob M. Escobedo; siblings, Susie, Louis (Sylvia), Robert (Lucy), Lupe, Angelita, Justo (Celia) and Anna (Robert); numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
