Luis Angel Benavides went to be with his Lord and Savior on August 19, 2021, at the age of 75. He was born January 10, 1946, in San Benito, TX to Lauro and Alicia Benavides. On June 2, 1964, he married his beloved bride, Mary Lidia, and they shared 59 years together. He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church and a manager superintendent of the Texas Highway Department. Luis enjoyed playing music, church choir, going to prayer group, machinery, cooking out, and spending time with his family. He was the founder of the Christian group "Los Pasos Del Senor" and played the accordion, guitar, and bass. He cared for others before himself and was a hard worker. Luis was a loveable friend to all. His wife was everything to him, he had a deep love for his family, and most of all he loved God. One day on his way home, Angel saw a family walking along the road. They had no money and no food. Angel brought the family to his home and welcomed them with food, love, and kindness.
Those left to cherish his memory are his wife Lidia Mary Benavides; his children Alda Beth Benavides, Carlos Perez, Jr., Luis Angel (Sally) Benavides, Joe Mario Benavidez, and Lisa (Edmund) Gomez.
He is preceded in death by his son Albert Benavidez, Jr.
