See You Later Grandpa

Where Vincent Angel in my name comes from.....see you later Grandpa...

Vincent Angel ascended into the presence of Christ on August 16, 2009. He was born in Galveston, Texas on April 5, 1931, and was proud to be a BOI. He worked for Model Dairy, the City of Galveston and Gerland’s Food Fair. He served his country as a soldier in the U.S. Army (568th O.H.M.) during the Korean War. Later he became a member of the Disabled American Veterans.

Because he enjoyed learning; he was always reading and taking notes. Vincent loved to quote and study the bible with family and friends and although he never got the chance to be a preacher; he was very grateful for his two children and one grandchild who became pastors to carry on what he loved. He was a faithful member of the First Church of God in Texas City. “A righteous man will be remembered forever.” Psalm 112:6. We will always remember his wit, his laughter and most of all, his love.

He married Guadalupe De La Rosa and had six children Johnny (Susan) Angel, Yvonne (John) Tsimiliotis; Elena (Warren) West; Teresa (Aaron) Hrachavina; Jesse Angel and Mario (Jessica) Angel. He is the proud grandfather of 16 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Vincent is survived by his brothers Jesse Angel and Ben Angel; sisters Anna Skinner, Mary Skinner and Lola Ayala. He now goes on to be with his dad and mom, Anancleto and Francisca Angel, brothers Heron and Guadalupe Angel and sister Esperanza Angel and grandson, Jeremy Angel.

Pallbearers will be Mario Angel Jr., Joshua Hrachavina, Jacob Angel, Dimitris and Emmanuel Tjanis and Billy Hernandez.

Visitation will be Wednesday night, August 19, 6 - 8 p.m. at Emken-Linton Funeral Home in Texas City, Texas. A “Celebration of Life” service will be held at 10 a.m., Thursday morning, August 20, at the First Church of God, 2209 29th St. N., Texas City with pastors Johnny Angel and Aaron Hrachavina officiating. His interment will follow at Calvary Cemetery in Galveston, Texas.

Special thanks to Vitas Hospice and to Miss Joanne Campbell for their special tenderness and care.
