Guadalupe Cruz, Jr. Obituary

It is with deep sadness that I share the passing of my beloved father, Guadalupe Cruz Jr. He fought this battle with his liver for more than a decade. My dad was strong and determined to stay in this world a little longer with us. Throughout these years, there were so many incidents that should have taken him but every single time he would persevere and beat the odds. We would all joke with him about having more lives than a cat. On May 10th, 2024, he was surrounded by love as he peacefully took his last breaths.


My dad, also known as Lupe, Loopster, Popo, father (when I was intentionally trying to get on his nerves) , Loopito is survived by his ex-wife, who ironically remained his best friend throughout all of these years, Lorie Cevallos; his children: Derrick Cruz , Lauren Cruz, and Summer Cevallos; his daughter in law: Carrie Cruz; his grandchildren: Mikiah-Sky Cruz, Mj Cruz, Mia Hope Cruz, Indy Cruz, and Leo Cruz; his father: Guadalupe Cruz Sr.; his siblings: Yolanda Hernandez, Linda (Meli) Garza, Federico Cruz, and David Cruz.


He is preceded in death by his beautiful and loving mother Esperanza Cruz, his baby brother Ernest Cruz, his son-in-law Muhammed Olademiji, his grandfather Matias Rodriguez Sr. and his grandmother Consuela Rodriguez.


Guadalupe Cruz Jr. worked a lot of jobs when he was younger. Construction was the main job. He taught me how to paint. My dad enjoyed putting on the music and just painting walls or whatever else needed painting. He always wanted to work and was a hard worker. In his later years, we can all agree that his projects took A LOT longer than expected, because my dad loved to take his breaks.


Anybody who had the privilege of meeting my dad, knew he had a passion for fishing. Anywhere there was a body of water, my dad would attempt to fish there. It made him so happy. I’m pretty sure everyone in our family has their own fishing story with my dad.


The biggest thing about my Dad was his HUGE heart. He loved his family more than anything in this world. He would call everyday just to tell you. My dad would give his last dollar in a second but would joke to you about charging interest. He loved being around his grandkids, taking them to get snow-cones, buying them scratch off tickets, letting them get snacks at the corner store, or “making a bed” on the couch and would watch “Law and Order”. He was also very feisty at times but would immediately apologize. We will all miss his jokes and his funny sense of humor, but it’s been an honor to have these memories and now we’ve gained another guardian angel. We love you Dad!


A viewing will be held at Morales Funeral Home at 2901 Canal Street, on Saturday May 18th, 2024 (3pm-8pm). Please come say your goodbyes while we send him off to his eternal fishing trip.
