Pedro Olivares, 66, of Georgetown, Texas, passed away on Jan. 27, 2021.
He was born on Oct. 23, 1954, in Gonzales, Texas. Pedro graduated from Gonzales High School and went on to join the military with the Army National Guard and later joined the United States Naval Reserve. He retired from L.C.R.A after 30 years of service as a Lineman. After taking some much-needed time off, Pedro started to work part-time at StorageMax Uhual Rental in Round Rock.
He married Rosa Maria in 1997, who survives him, and his children; son Guillermo Martinez, daughter Elizabeth Almazan and spouse Marco, daughter Dahlia Martinez, son Pedro Olivares Jr., and daughter Delilah Olivares. He had three grandchildren; Danna, Marco Jr., and Naomi Almazan and three grand-dogs Maggie, Sammie, and King. He is also survived by his siblings and family; his brother John Olivares Jr., spouse Judy, and son Alex; brother Matilde Olivares, spouse Carolina; children, Matt, Mario, and Maria; sister Teresa Molina, spouse Candido, children Angela, Ricardo, Duke, and Becky; sister-in-law Carolina Olivares; children, Jo Ann, Joe Jr., spouse Sonia and daughter Peyton.
Pedro was predeceased by his parents John and Rosa Olivares, brother Joe Olivares, nephew Javier Olivares, along with his grand-dogs KoKo and Lucky.
Pedro was known for his love of the Dallas Cowboys– he was the true definition of a “die-hard” fan and never missed a single game. You could have found him often outside cleaning his truck to ensure that it remained in a pristine clean condition and that the Cowboys logo remained prominent. If he was not outside cleaning his truck, he could be found starting new projects around the house and listening to Tejano music. He had a passion for Tejano music, and he especially enjoyed listening to his favorite artist, Gary Hobbs. He enjoyed going to dances and spending time with family and friends. He loved watching Clint Eastwood films, old episodes of JAG and NCIS. Most of all he was known for his sense of humor, his infectious laugh, generosity and a true friend to everyone.
The memorial service will be held on Saturday, Feb. 13, 2021, at 2 p.m. at the Gabriel’s Chapel and Crematory. The ceremony will consist of immediate family with the intentions of a Celebration of Life Event in the future for extended family and friends to attend.
