On behalf of The Escobedo Family , we are asking for your assistance in raising funds to cover his funeral and related expenses.
There is no greater pain endured than that suffered from the loss of a son or daughter. We have lost our beloved son, Tony. The most gentle of souls anyone could ever have the fortune of meeting.
Tony was a very accomplished young man who loved to read, if he had change in his pocket he would spend it by buying a book. He loved to work on math or science projects. He was a student at the Math and Science Academy High School in Brownsville, Texas.
Always involving himself in extra curricular activities, he volunteered in helping people file their tax returns, he was also a volunteer at the local library. He was always there to lend a helping hand, if someone needed help in carrying anything or just crossing the street he would jump at the opportunity to help.
Last year, at the age of 17, he became part of the city of Brownsville's First Youth Advisory Council with the Brownsville City Commission. At the age of 17 he became the youngest board member of the Parks & Recreation board. Tony's talents were not only intellectual, he also excelled in sports. He achieved the level of Black Belt in the art of Tae Kwon Do and was an accomplished archer having competed at the state level.
His goals, upon graduating High School, were to serve his country by enlisting in the U.S. Air Force and was going to attend Texas State University where he would major in Mechanical Engineering and Political Science.
Tony will be greatly missed by all those that loved him.
Contributions of ANY size are deeply appreciated as we would like to memorialize Jose Antonio “Tony” Escobedo in a meaningful way with his Family, Friends, and colleagues.
Funds will be deposited directly to The Escobedo Family account for funeral services and related expenses.
Please consider helping his family in their time of need. Thank you for your support!
