1944-2014

Mike R. Munoz went to be with the Lord on Monday, Feb. 17, 2014, at the age of 70 years. He was born in Floresville, Texas, on Jan. 6, 1944, the son of Louis P. and Dora R. Munoz.

Mike graduated from Floresville High School in 1962 and continued on to receive both a Bachelor and Master of Arts degree in economics from St. Mary’s University. Mike was an assistant professor of economics at Northwest Vista College for the past 10 years. Prior to teaching, Mike and his wife were owner/operators of three McDonald’s franchise restaurants. He also held several positions with government as a counselor for the Veterans Administration, a special agent in charge of investigating traffic accidents with the Department of Transportation, and a bank examiner with the Federal Home Loan Bank Board.

Mike was a Vietnam veteran who served as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army’s 173rd Airborne Brigade and as an airborne ranger with the 82nd Airborne Division. Some of his many citations include the Combat Infantry Badge, Silver Star, and two Purple Hearts. Mike was ordained in May of 2008 as a deacon in the Catholic Church. He was a longtime parishioner of Mission San Jose Catholic Church, where he served as deacon for more than five years. Mike loved the outdoors and enjoyed spending time at his ranch. Some of his hobbies included fishing, golf, flying small aircrafts, and observing nature.

He was preceded in death by his father, Louis P. Munoz; and brother Louis Munoz Jr.

Mike is survived by his loving wife, Rosie H. Munoz; son Mike R. Munoz Jr.; daughter Linda Munoz Zehr and husband Wade; his mother, Dora R. Munoz; sisters Adelia Cantu and Irene Carranza; and his adopted family, William Vasquez and wife Helen and their two daughters, Helen and Lizeth.

Visitation was held on Friday, Feb. 21, from 5-9 p.m. with a rosary recited at 7 p.m. in the Southside Funeral Home in San Antonio.

A funeral Mass was celebrated on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in the San Jose Mission in San Antonio.

A private interment will follow at a later date in the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio.
