Ovidio Escamilla Sr. was born, June 24, 1955 to proud parents. He was an adored son, brother, father, grandfather, and friend to many. Ovidio peacefully passed away, September 9, 2020 having succumbed to the symptoms of the novel Corona Virus Disease.
He is survived by his parents, Antonio and Frances Escamilla, his loving companion, Yolanda Ramirez, his three children, Ovidio (Elisa) Escamilla Jr. of Corpus Christi, Jennifer Villarreal of Alice, & Ashley (Martin)
Vargas of San Antonio. Ovidio doted on his four grandchildren, Moses, Kadence, McKenzie, and Yssa. He is also survived by his brother, Carlos (Imelda) Escamilla, Antonio Escamilla Jr., his sister, Belinda (Tony) Zamora and numerous nieces and nephews. Ovidio cherished his time with his grandchildren and kids, especially for bbq’s during the football season. He truly enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s sporting events, always as the silent observer on the side with positive praise and a treat after their games or performances. He was very supportive of them all and would do whatever he could to make them happy and feel loved. Ovidio enjoyed family gatherings as he was always cracking jokes or teasing the kiddos. He was quick-witted with his children and preferred that line of communication to always keep things light-hearted. He loved sitting outside with a few cold ones, listening to Tejano music, occasionally showing his boys how to bbq tripas in the disco, and just relaxing with his treasured family and friends. Ovidio is now reunited in eternal life with his first-born son, Daniel Escamilla, maternal grandparents, Antonio and Eliza Blanco, and his paternal grandparents, Aniceto and Guadalupe Escamilla. He will be remembered most for his strength and giving heart. He would provide all he could to anyone in need. Ovidio always had a light air to him and never could be troubled by obstacles that came his way. He is often referred to as “such a good man” and that, he honestly was.
