Emilio Jesus "Milo" Fuentes

December 24, 1993 — March 23, 2017

On March 23, 2017, Emilio Jesus Fuentes, aka…”Choco”….”Milo”, A brother, an uncle, and a man with a heart the size of Texas, was taken from this earth.

It is true when they say that the good ones go first, because Milo was definitely one of them. Milo loved everyone and without hesitation he was there to lend a hand. Milo worked at T&T Pipe and Supply where he did it all, he fixed pumps, made deliveries, stocked shelves, and anything else that needed to be done.

He has spent all of his life in Crane and was known by many. He helped brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and with all of his heart as it brought him joy. One of his greatest characteristics was his joy in just playing with kids just like he was a kid himself, it didn’t matter what it was….wrestling, jumping on the trampoline, playing with toys on the floor, or just playing in the yard. His smile was contagious, his hugs were filled with love and he lived his life enjoying the little things. He just wanted to make people feel good, it was not uncommon for him to just show up at your house with a bag full of fajitas, pork chops, spices, and all the fixings…all because he just felt like cooking for those around. There were many happy and joyful moments with Milo that will be in our memories forever. His love for others can never be doubted and will never be forgotten.

Milo is survived by his parents, Librado Fuentes Jr. and Margarita Fuentes; his sister, Raquel Fuentes; two brothers, Ben Fuentes and his wife Heather, and Librado Fuentes, III; his nieces and nephews, Elijah Fuentes, Crimson Fuentes, Roman Fuentes, Bella Fuentes, Beyancca Aranda, Mercedes Aranda, Ivan Aranda, and Somerria Fuentes; great nephews, Eli Fuentes; and his grandmother, Ofelia Fuentes. His aunts and uncles, Rick and Pat Cadena, Manuel and Dora Fuentes, Rudy and Tula Acosta, Rosa Cordova, Joe and Joany Hernandez, Robert and Anita Hernandez, Timo Hernandez, and Chito Hernandez; and numerous cousins.
Also surviving is his girlfriend, Marisa Ortiz, and her children, Michaela Ortiz, and Xavier Ortiz.

Rosary was said at 7:00 PM Sunday, March 26, 2017, at the Shaffer-Nichols Funeral Home Chapel. Funeral Mass was held at 3:00 PM on Monday, March 27, 2017, at the Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Crane. Burial was in the Crane County Cemetery. Arrangements are with Shaffer-Nichols Funeral Home.
