Señor Tómas Rivera was born on March 7, 1929 as the first-born son to Anselmo Rivera and Juanita Venegas, raised in the small town of Anahuac, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. As the first to carry the families name Tómas and his loving wife Francés created a home that would foster acceptance, understanding, and love. He represented the passion and strong work ethic of a devoted steelworker who supported his family in both the good and hard times. Through his children and down to his great grandchildren he exemplified the meaning of dedication and honor. His presence will never cease to exist as it can be seen in all 53 of his descendants. It is because of him we all know where we come from and where we are going. Tómas, we thank you for teaching us how to lead and love a family. Tómas was preceded in death by his loving wife of 52 years, Frances Rivera. He is survived by his children, Maria Esther Garcia (Jesus), Sandra Rivera (Karen), Jose Rivera ( Filomena), Rosa Rivera ( Lety), Anselmo Rivera, Juan De Dios Rivera (Beverley), Albert Rivera, Juanita Rodriguez (Roger), Olga Jackson (Scottie), Thomas Rivera Jr. (Yvonne), 25 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren. Forever in our Hearts. PS….”The Garage es Closed” Services A visitation will begin from 5:00p.m.-8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at Mission Park Funeral Chapels North.
