Our beloved father George D. Saucedo, Jr. lifelong resident of Kyle, Tx went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Monday, January 14, 2019. He passed away in his home, surrounded by his loving family, following a short battle with cancer just shortly after his seventy-sixth birthday.
Anyone who knew George knew he was very social, smart, witty, strong willed and determined to be successful. He wasn’t able to complete his education. However, his lack of education did not stop him from all of his accomplishments.
In 1970 George became a first-time home owner and that started his aspiration to invest in real estate. Over the years he invested in several residential and commercial properties in Kyle. His life as an entrepreneur started shortly after. George established multiple businesses in Kyle. Many memories were made with family and friends throughout the years.
George was involved in an accident and suffered traumatic injuries that left him immobile for nearly two years. He used this time to obtain a certification in Jewelry & Watch Repair. Which kicked off a new adventure for George, he then started a new hobby that turned into yet another business. He later became a welder while continuing jewelry and watch repair and retired from Butler Manufacturing after 25 years. Despite his setbacks George created a successful life.
After his retirement, George continued an active life maintaining his property from sun up to sun down and never stopped his diligent work ethic. Which was important to him that he instilled that into his 6 children.
His favorite past times were dancing, hunting and watching football. He was an active member of The Knights of Columbus at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. George was a loyal Dallas Cowboy and Texas Longhorn fan. He had a passion for collecting John Deere tractors. He enjoyed socializing, traveling and venturing with his children.
George is preceded in death by his parents George Saucedo Sr. and Angelina Delgado Saucedo, brother Samuel Saucedo, sisters Maria Soto, Hortencia Cisneros, Tomasa Cisneros, and Rosa Pompa.
