Obituary for Mario Rivera

Mario Rivera, 67, went home to be the Lord on Thursday, August 29, 2019 at his home in Kyle, Texas. He was born and raised in Rio Grande City, the son of Gustavo and Ramona (Moralez) Rivera.
He is survived by his wife, Velma (Sanchez) Rivera, 60 years; his daughter Lisa Hernandez and her husband Jason Hernandez; his son, Mario Tanaka and his husband Sho Tanaka; his grandson Michael; and many close friends and relatives.
Mario graduated Rio Grande High School and attended community college in San Antonio. He joined the Marine Corps in 1972 where he earned the rank of Staff Sergeant in the Food Services. Later, he would make a career at the United Parcel Service as a driver for 33 years before retiring to Kyle, Texas where he could be close to his grandson.
A lifelong quiet, humble, and hardworking man, Mario would spend his weekends before and after church tuning his vehicles, building large wood work projects, or renovating the house.
A viewing and service of remembrance will be held 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. on Monday, September 9 at Thomason Funeral Home, 2001 Ranch Road 12, San Marcos, Texas. Interment will be 10:00 am Tuesday, September 10 at the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery, San Antonio, beside brothers and sisters in arms.
