This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Daniel Esquivel 84 years old , born on July 29, 1929 and passed away on March 22, 2014. We will remember him forever.

Daniel Esquivel (my father) was born and raised here in Robstown Tx. He married my mother on May 20, 1950. He passed away from a stroke due to complications after surgery. He  woke up from the anesthesia with not much  quality of life left (tears). He lasted three months there were days when it seemed that we were gonna see a miracle!. The Lord answered our prayer of healing him just not in the way we wanted him to.. He chose to take my father home and heal him in heaven (tears).   My father was a very strong man. He was my hero in many ways. Born like my mother in very hard times... He didn't have much schooling either, his education got him only to the 6th grade. But that didn't stop my father from being a good husband and a good father to his three daughters.  He and my mother had their own way of loving each other, they had a kind of love  that not very many people understood. Although they had their share of problems my mother never gave up on him and neither did he give up on her. they stayed together till death took my mother first (tears).

My dad was a man of many trades or as the saying goes a "Jack of all trades." There was nothing my dad couldn't do or build. He was our electrician, our mechanic , our plumber, our carpenter, and everything in-between. There was not a day that went by that i wouldn't ask my dad for something that he wouldn't do for me and my sisters and if he didn't have it he would dig holes to get it or make it for us.  He was our Santa Clause in Christmas... He was a strict father but that character in him is what made us the women we are today.. He worked so hard in difficult refinery work as a labor and then as a foreman. But even as a foreman he never once got a raise nor a paid vacation much less a vacation period. But his work ethics inspired us. We looked up to him for his hard efforts to provide for his family. I miss him dearly (tears) in his last year or so.. he developed first stages of dimencia :'( but to me it wasn't that, i believe he was overwhelmed with grieve for my mother that he just couldn't cope with her death that he got lost in his grief and it made him forget everything else, confusion set in and he begin to lose some memory but i believe it was his grief that had consumed him (tears). It was so bad that he had no room to think of anything except his grief (tears).  

I miss my dad so very very much i never in my life thought i would lose him that's how much of a strong man he was (tears). But at last he did go home and my comfort is that He got to recieve the Lord as his personal Savior and he recieved eternal life! and because of that i am gonna get to see him alongside my mother and sister one day as well (tears). I cant wait to see them all again! (tears). I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU DEARLY DADDY! <3
