Obituary for Pedro Gaitan

Pedro Garza Gaitan (89) son of Adolfo and Rogelio Gaitan gained his wings and went to be with our heavenly father Sunday, January 6th 2019. He is preceded in eternal life in Jesus Christ by his wife Raquel Rodriguez Gaitan. Sister – Jesus Morales, Catalina Cervantes, deceased brother, Celestino Gaitan. Pedro leaves behind daughter Irma and two sons Pete Jr and Alvin, daughter-in-law Lucinda, grandchildren – Melody, Marriah (husband Hector), Aaron and Alvin Jr., two great grandchildren Hayden and Aliyana. Surviving sisters are Victoria Barrientos, Josie Chaires, Rosa Gaitan-Delgado, Herminia Tamayo, Julia Machado and brother, Adolfo Gaitan Jr.

Pedro served in Alaska during the Korean War and was a Hyde Park legend where he was a well-known barber for over 50 years.
He was a dad, brother, Tio (uncle), grandpa, great grandpa, father-in-law and a friend to many.

Pedro lived a great life and enjoyed being out in his yard with his plants and hot peppers. We’ll always remember his great big hugs and kisses on the cheeks, his whistle and gestures and sayings. He had quite a sense of humor. He’d say “Beau-ti-ful” and “hello babeh.”
Pedro spent the last few months at the regent nursing home here in San Marcos and it was nice to have him close by to visit. Our visits will be missed but lots of memories were made. We took lots of pictures and he was amazed at the technology. Alvin face-timed Pete one day and he was amazed to see pete on the screen.
His last days were spent with an actual day out of the nursing home. He anxiously waited for Alvin and Pete to pick him up to take him out for a ride and lunch. He enjoyed bar-b-que and even had an ice cream. He always had a smile at the end of our visits and said our good byes. So for now we say good bye again but know we’ll see you again one day up in heaven. Give a hug to mom for us. We love you Pedro Garza Gaitan.
