Perez, and two sisters, Josie Fernandez and Margaret Robinson. Mr. Perez proudly served in the United States Marine Corp and was awarded the Bronze Star, two Purple Hearts and several other medals while serving in Viet Nam. He was honorably discharged with the rank of Sergeant. His stint in the Marines took him to the Dominican Republic, Germany and other countries. He attended Edgewood High School and San Antonio College. He worked for the Highway Department and the Motor Pool at both SARPMA and Kelly Air Force Base. He enjoyed watching football and wrestling on TV and going to Hooters on his birthday. He was a friendly person who instantly became the nurses' favorite when receiving medical care. Mr. Perez is survived by his sister, Esther Cantu (David), two cousins Susie Bononcini (Sons Nicholas and Jose), Pat Rios (Daughters Gabriella and Isabella) and numerous nieces and nephews. Richard will be missed by family and friends but he leaves behind a legacy of dedication and service to his country.
