Genaro Tellez

June 21, 1924 — June 3, 2015

Genaro Luis Tellez, of Pecos, went to be with the Lord on June 3rd in Midland, Tx.

Genaro Luis Tellez was born in El Paso, Texas to Genaro and Celia Tellez. He married Laura Vargas in El Paso, Texas. Genaro and Laura were the owners of the popular Thriftway Grocery store. He was also the recipient of the Hidden Hero award and the Citizen of the Year award presented by the Pecos Chamber of Commerce.

Genaro Luis Tellez was one of a dying breed. Many words can be used to describe this honorable man like generous, compassionate, forgiving, selfless but most important are devoted husband and loving father. This scripture best describes our father. Blessed is the man who fears The Lord, who finds great delight in his commands. His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious, compassionate and righteous man. Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice. Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever. Psalm 112:1-6

Genaro is survived by the love of his life, wife Laura. Family includes daughter Frances Porras, grandchildren Ted and Carol Porras; daughter Sally Delgado and husband Richard, granddaughter Kristine Koenig; daughter Sylvia Miranda and husband Max, grandchildren Laura, Vanessa and Max Miranda Jr.; Son Genaro Tellez Jr. and wife Maria, grandchildren Mari, Dominique and Bernadette Tellez; daughter Linda Boone and husband Bill, grandchildren George Brian Gonzales and Juan Luis Borrego; daughter Debra Goff and husband William, grandchildren Alyssa Nicole Garcia, Dallas and DesaRay Goff; daughter Sandra Tellez, grandchildren Jonathan and Andrea Bowling; one brother, Arturo Tellez and one sister, Rosie Duran and husband Alphonso, both of El Paso, Tx. He is also survived by 22 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Pallbearers will be Ted Porras, Max Miranda Jr., Genaro Tellez Jr., Dominique Tellez, George Brian Gonzales, Juan Luis Borrego, William Goff and Alvino Garcia Jr.
