Lauro Roque Zamora, 78, a native of Brownsville who had lived in Mexia for the last 18 years, died Aug. 18, 2014. He was born Aug. 16, 1936. He was laid to rest Friday, Aug. 22, in his hometown.
Zamora was well known around the Mexia area as a great mechanic, working on tractors, cars, trucks, dozers and just about anything that ran on gas and oil. He was a good and kind-hearted man who would help anyone, a firm father who had lots of friends. He would say his most memorable times were spent in Tehuacana where he helped his best friend, Sammy, on the rancho. He will be missed by his family and friends.
Zamora is survived by his wife, Irma Zamora; five sons, Larry, Carlos, Joe, Eddie and Victor Zamora; two daughters, Lupita Zamora and Gabriela Martinez; 19 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; two daughters-in-law, Lupe Zamora and Edith Zamora; and a son-in-law, Ricardo Martinez.
You will always be in our hearts and thoughts. May you rest in peace, Apa (Dad).
