Arturo Casas Carvajal, 84, went to heaven on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014, after a sudden heart attack. He was born on July 16, 1929, in Floresville, Texas, to Oscar Carvajal and Jesusita “Susan” Casas Pena.

In 1944, Arturo stretched the truth about his age a little and enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 16 so that he could serve his country during World War II. When he returned to San Antonio, he joined the U.S. Army Reserve and volunteered to serve with the 187th Airborne. He was called to active duty to serve during the Korean War. Arturo was wounded in combat and received war zone military awards to include the Purple Heart for heroic actions during a combat operation. When he returned home, he was transported to the VA hospital in Temple, Texas, for treatment and recovery. When he recovered from his injuries, he went to work at Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio and continued to serve his country as a civil servant “procurement specialist” at Kelly AFB for 33 years. Arturo was a great provider, father, confidant, and friend. He took every opportunity to share these ideals with all he came into contact with.

Arturo is survived by his children, Carol Valenzuela, Rose Castano, and Alan Arthur Carvajal; eight grandchildren; four great-grand-children; two sisters, Rosemarie Carvajal and Dolores Pena Romero; and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.

Visitation was held on Friday, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m. in the Sunset Northwest Funeral Home in San Antonio.

A funeral service was held on Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Sisters of Cordi-Marian, Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel in San Antonio.

Interment followed in the Floresville City Cemetery in Floresville.
