Thomas Anthony DeLaCruz
Thomas Anthony De La Cruz was born September 13, 1950 in Houston, Texas. He went to be with our Lord on October 18, 2013 at the age of sixty-three at Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital.
Thomas was formerly a licensed plumber with the Local 68 Union. He passed on this trade to four of his sons. He enjoyed listening to oldies and rock. He always spoke his mind and rarely held anything back. He was generous to a fault, always offering a place to anyone in need. His presence was so strong and will be greatly missed.

Thomas is survived by his devoted wife, Patricia; and their six children, Sammy De La Cruz and wife Krystle, Angelo and Katrina Barnes, Thomas De La Cruz Jr., Michelle De La Cruz and Omar Caceres, Joseph De La Cruz and Alexandra Ruder, and Jason De La Cruz. He also leaves behind fifteen grandchildren, two siblings, a sister in-law and several nieces and nephews.
Acting as Pallbearers are his five sons, Sammy, Angelo, Tommy, Joseph, and Jason along with nephew, Abel Blanco Jr.
