Obituary of Crisanto Aguilar, Jr.
Please share a memory of Crisanto to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Crisanto Aguilar, Jr. 64, of Harlingen, TX passed away on Friday, July 14, 2023. Left to cherish his memory are his loving children, Priscilla, and Michael. Born in a small town in the heart of America, Chris’s journey began with dreams of serving his country. As a young man, he enlisted in the military, displaying unwavering courage and dedication during his time in service. His experiences shaped him into a man of integrity, compassion, and a profound love for his fellow comrades. Returning home from service, Chris's love for life blossomed even more as he embraced the joys of his family. He met the love of his life, San Juanita and together they raised two children Priscilla and Michael Aguilar that thrived in life by their love. Chris was the epitome of a doting father, always there to provide guidance, encouragement, and support of his children's dreams and aspirations. He delighted in sharing his love for life with his family, whether it was being the life of the party at BBQ's, cheering on his children at sport events, or simply sharing laughter during family gatherings. Chris's smile could light up any room, and his love knew no bounds. Beyond his role as a loving father and husband, Chris remained deeply involved in his hobbies, as in gardening and personal crafting. He selflessly offered his time to anyone who needed it, always ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. His commitment to service extended far beyond his military days, leaving a positive impact on everyone fortunate enough to cross paths with him. Sadly, Chris's life was cut short too soon, leaving his family and community heartbroken. Yet his spirit lives on in the cherished memories he left behind. Through "A Legacy of Love", we are reminded of the lessons he taught us - to love unconditionally, serve with kindness, and cherish every moment with our loved ones. As we turn the pages of this touching eulogy, we are inspired to live our lives to the fullest, just as Chris did, and to honor his memory by emulating the love and devotion he poured into everything he did. His legacy continues through the hearts and minds of his family, friends, and all those touched by his radiant spirit. We celebrate the life of Crisanto Aguilar Jr., a devoted father, esteemed veteran, and a man who cherished every moment of life for the sake of his family.
