Obituary

Ivan Acevedo, age 46, passed away on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 in San Antonio. He was preceded in death by his father, Carlos Acevedo, Jr. Ivan is survived by his beloved wife, Angelica Acevedo; mother, Pilar Janis; sister, Ana Acevedo; mother-in-law, Angelica Yolanda Calvillo; brothers- in-law, Eduardo Gutierrez, Arturo Gutierrez and Roberto Gutierrez; nephews, Spencer, Erick and Victor; niece, Karla Ximena; and a large extended family.

Ivan was a music lover. He had a musician's soul. His taste went from boleros to heavy metal. His record collection was one of his most valuable treasures.

Ivan was a very intelligent, learned and educated man. He loved to read. Talking to him was a treat. He always had an answer for any question. Ivan was few months short to become Doctor Acevedo, one of his great achievements in life. He proudly wanted to be part of the small percentage of Hispanic men around the world that succeed on getting a PhD degree. He was currently working on his dissertation 'Preparing for Social Change: Exploring Undergraduate Latina leadership development' which was inspired by his wife from who he was very proud and was his biggest motivation.

Ivan had always a positive attitude. He always looked at the positive side of any situation. He focused his attention on things that he was able to resolve and not to the things that were out of his hands. He loved to make people laugh and tried to laugh at any situation. Family and friends were very important to him. He always looked for the way to help everybody who ever needed.

Memorial services will be held at 10AM on Thursday April the 5th, at the mausoleum of Mission Park Funeral Chapels and Cemetery Dominion - 20900 IH 10 West. Rabbi David Silverstein will officiate.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Family Violence and Prevention Services http://www.fvps.org/, or to the Children's Shelter https://www.childrensshelter.org/
