Daniel Trevino

January 3, 1933 — March 29, 2014

EDINBURG — Daniel R. Trevino, 81, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at his home in Edinburg, Texas on Saturday, March 29, 2014. Daniel was born in Edinburg, Texas on January 3, 1933 to Felix Trevino and Manuela Rodriguez Trevino. He is preceded in death by his parents and 2 – brothers. After his father died, while Daniel was very young, his Uncle Julian Rodriguez became his “Papa de Crianza”. He was raised in the outskirts of Mission and attended the Sharyland schools. While he never finished high school, he was an ardent champion of education for his children. All four of his children earned college degrees, with two earning master degrees.

He married the love of his life, Francisca Elisa Sauceda, on May 26, 1963. Left to cherish his memories are his wife of 50 years, Francisca “Licha” Sauceda Trevino; daughters, Janie Trevino, Laura Trevino, Frances Trevino; son, Daniel Trevino Jr.; granddaughter, Marie Nicole “Nikkie” Rivera, who was his beloved “Chiquitita”; sisters, Antonia and Genoveva; numerous nephews, nieces, brothers-in-law, sisters- in- law; cousins and loyal companion, his corgi mix “Jasmine”.

Daniel was raised to be a very responsible individual and had a very strong work ethic. To support his family he would travel to California, Washington state, Montana, Idaho, and West Texas. In 1972 he decided to remain in the valley and gained employment at Donna Fruit Company where he worked for 33 years. Known by his friends and employers for his loyalty, humility, responsibility, and desire to better his family, Daniel always had other part time work while working a full-time job. In this manner he would instill in his children, who would join him in the part time jobs, a greater appreciation for the values he was taught at a very young age. He would often share with his children the fact that as a nine year old boy he went to ask for a job at a traveling circus that had come to town- he bathed the elephants that day and took the earnings to his mom. To teach his children the values of responsibility and dependability, he obtained a newspaper route for half of Edinburg in 1980. This would be the “Family Job”. His friends and children would also know him to be kind, generous, trustworthy, a great problem solver around the house and the most loyal Dallas Cowboys fan. While always busy, he did find time to relax by playing his accordion and listening to musica nortena, rancheras, polkas and even “Pitbull”. His family was the pride and joy of his life and his legacy will live on in his family’s hearts.

His family will receive family and friends today, Wednesday, April 2, 2014 from 3:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. with a rosary to be prayed at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Peace at Ceballos-Diaz Funeral Home, 322 East Kuhn Street in Edinburg. Christian Mass will be held on Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Edinburg. Christian burial will follow to El Cibolo Cemetery in Edinburg. Have the distinguished honor to serve as pallbearers will be Daniel Trevino, Jr., Ricardo Ramos, Homero Ramos, Alfredo Ramos, Felix Rodriguez, II, and Christopher Dominguez. Honorary pallbearers will be Alejandro Sauceda, Randy Rodriguez, Marcos Rodriguez, and J.J. Rodriguez. Funeral services have been entrusted to Ceballos-Diaz Funeral Home in Edinburg.
