Manuel “Magoo” V. Romero went to the “Big House” on January 24, 2018 surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Waco, Texas to Arthur J. and Janie O. Romero. He lived all of his life in San Marcos, part of the Fredericksburg Street neighborhood.

He graduated from San Marcos High School in 1969 and immediately joined the Navy, serving a tour in Vietnam. He worked at Gary Job Corps for 19 years as a painter and an instructor after receiving his teaching certificate from Southwest Texas State University. He then continued his career with The University of Texas for 12 years as a painter. Painting was a profession he loved.

Magoo was a huge fan of U.T. Longhorn sports. He enjoyed fishing, little league baseball and live music.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Janie Romero, and his brothers Arthur “Jinx”, Robert and Dennis.

He is survived by his loving wife Virginia; his daughter Melissa and son Ché (Jennifer); 4 grandchildren Michaela, Christian, Melaina, and Milo; his sisters Mary Jayne Cerda and Deborah (Marko) Lopez; brother Michael; and sister-in-law Janie Romero. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Visitation will be held on Monday, January 29, 2018 from 4-9 pm, with a rosary at 7 pm at Thomason Funeral Home in San Marcos. A Mass will be held on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 at St. John’s Catholic Church in San Marcos at 10 am. A private family burial will be held at a later date.

The family wishes to thank Heart to Heart Hospice for all their help and support during this difficult time.
