Steve O. Resendez
Steve Olmos Resendez, 71, of Houston, Texas was born to Belia Olmos on October 17th, 1943.After many years of health challenges, on April 19th, 2015, Steve received his crown as he transitioned into eternal life in Heaven. Steve was a husband, a father, a dad, a grandfather, a great-grandfather, a son, and a brother.
At the young age of eighteen, Steve enlisted in the United States Army where he served two years. During that time he got to travel and see some of the world. After returning home, he began to work and soon had a family. Steve enjoyed bowling, fishing, and dancing in his younger days.
Those who knew him would say that he was an amazing, loving, hardworking, and stubborn man. His children would say he loved them unconditionally, raised them to go for what they wanted, taught them to be strong and tough, and to never give up. They may even say he was hard on them, but they each know that without him they would not be who they are today.
Steve’s spirit will forever be alive and with us but his presence, his smile, his voice, his jokes, and even his attitude will greatly be missed here on earth.
In the words of Steve “He is one tough Mexican.” He still fits that description but now he is looking down on us.
Steve is preceded in death by mother, Belia O. Mancha and sister, Felipa J. Villanueva.
Steve is survived by wife, Keren Resendez; sons, Steve, Ray, Julian and daughter-in-laws; daughters, Marie, Juliana, Jena and son-n-laws; sisters, Hope, Gloria, Connie, and Theresa; brother, Ernest; eighteen grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and a very large extended family.
Words to Steve from his wife, Keren Resendez:
“Thank you for choosing to love me. You will always be my knight in shining armor
, and I always your lady. I love you!”
“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which asleep in Jesus will God bring with him.” 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
