Obituary

 

Laureano Ortiz Tovar, 77, died February 27, 2021 at St. David Hospital, Round Rock, Texas.

Laureano was the most respectable and admirable person that many ever met during a lifetime.  His presence and stature was held in high-esteem by those that knew him, and his comical and nurturing personality will forever be in both the family’s memories and heart. 

He was a hardworking man that would always prioritize everyone’s comfort and would do so to the best of his ability.  Abuelo would gather lumber and clean the patio every Saturday in order to prepare for the weekly family gatherings that consisted of laughter, banter, and muddy shoes that would barrage the living room and kitchen in dirt.

Many people within the family whether it be children, grandchildren, sons or daughters in law have unique memories of their time with him.  He was often described as hardworking, always up to date with his cattle and horses that he had to feed, hundreds of miles away, in Mexico.  His great memory allowed him toe ability to remember intricate details whenever he would tell us stories around the campfire or dinner table.  Not only was his memory great, but his tortillas were also a delicacy in the Ortiz household.  Everyone can attest to that.  Abuelo cared very much about all his grandchildren, and always strived to push them to become responsible and independent.  Abuelo was proud that we were able to receive an education and were pursuing our dreams.  He would always encourage us to never give up, and would note that small infractions within our lives were merely tests we had to go through in order to reach success.

We will continue to remember and cherish the memories that we made and continue to hold them within our hearts.  At times we may become sad or ponder about unfortunate events, but we must remember to push through because just like Abuelo said, we will always be “Mejor que ayer.”

El abuelo, Laureano Ortiz Tovar, fue la persona mas respectable y admirable que muchos de nosotros hemos concido durante nuestra vida.  Su presencia y estatura fue mantenida en alta estima por aquellos que lo conocieron, y su personalidad comica y nutritiva estarua para siempre tanto en nuestros recuerdos como en nucestro Corazon.  Nuestro abuelo era un hombre trabajador que siempre priorizo la comodidad de todos.  Abuelo recogia madera y impiaba el patio todos los sabados con el fin de prepararse para las reunions familiars semanales que consistian en risas, bromas y zabatos sucios de sus nietos.

Muchas personas dentro de la familia, ya sean hijos, nietos, nueras o yernos tienen recuerdos unicos de su tiempo con el.  A menudo era descrito como trabajador, siempre al dia con su Ganado y caballos que tenia.  Su gran memoria le permitio recorder asombrosos detalles cada vez que nos contaba historias alrededor de la fogata los fin de semana.  No solo su memoria era grande, sino que sus tortillas Tambien eran un manjar en la casa deo los Ortiz.  El abuelo siempre nos decia que fueramos personas de Buena fe.  Abuelo estaba orgulloso de que pudimos recibir una education y estabamos persiguiendo nuestros suenos.  El siempre nos amimaba a no redirnos nunca, y observaba que las perquefias suenos.  El siemp;re nos animaba a no redirnos nunca, y observaba que las perquenas infracciones dentro de nuestras vidas cran simplemente pruebas que teniamos que pasar para alcanzar el exito.

Seguiremos recordando y apreciando los recuerdos que hicimos y seguiremos sosteniendolos dentro de nuestros corazones. A veces podemos entristecernos o reflexionor sobre hechos desafortunados, pero debemos recorder sequir Adelante porque como el abuelo siempre decia siempre estaremos “mejores que ayre”.
