Raul Leonardo Renteria was born June 8, 1931, in Houston, Texas to Jose and Pauline (Laesano) Renteria. He grew up and received his education in Houston.

In November 1963, he married Carmen Quiroz. Raul worked at Chappell Duct and later as a mechanic at Town and Country Motors for over 25 years. He was hardworking, honest and kind. Raul loved to fix things, have coffee with the guys at Cash Wise and especially loved his pets.
