Alex M. Guillen Jr,

Alex Guillen Jr,

     Alex M. Guillen Jr. was born in Port Lavaca, Texas on July 10th, 1941 and was a long time resident of  La Marque, Texas.

    God asked for one of his greatest souls to come and be with him once again on the morning of November 14,2014. He was the greatest friend, teacher/mentor, husband and father anyone could ever ask for. He had a heart of gold, he accepted everyone he came across as his own and in his eyes there was never a bad person. He loved harder than anyone and no matter what you did, he never turned his back on you. Babies were his only weak spot, the sound of a baby's laugh would bring the biggest smile to his face. He loved camping, fishing, eating pie and watching WWE Wrestling.  He always said his two greatest accomplishments in life were his family and working for the best boss he could ask for, Jack Ploss with Chemical Processing/Ploss Industries, for over 40 years.

    He is preceded in death by parents, Alejos “Alex” Guillen and   Jesusa “Susie” of Port Lavaca; sister, Margarita Delgado, Estelle Garza both of Port Lavaca and Anita Baez of Greeley Colorado.
