Enrique Chavira

Enrique Chavira, 58, of Mineral Wells, passed away suddenly on June 20, 2013. He was born in Mineral Wells, the son of Bicente Torres Chavira and Aurora (Leyton) Chavira. Enrique graduated from Mineral Wells High School and went into the U.S. Air Force, where he spent four years proudly serving his country. He was currently working for G&F Oil Inc. as a petroleum engineer. He spent most of his working life in the oil and gas industry and truly enjoyed every day of his work.

To some he was known as the “well whisperer” because of his passion and knowledge of the industry.

When Enrique had some spare time he loved playing foosball, and probably had trouble finding a worthy opponent because of his talent on the table. He also had a special place in his heart for animals; stray animals are what he loved. He would take in any that were in need of food, water or shelter.

He leaves behind son, Benito Chavira; mother, Aurora Chavira; wife, Rosemeri Chavira; brothers, Roberto Chavira and wife, Juanita, and Bicente Torres Chavira Jr.; sisters: Mary Gonzales and husband, Amaro, and Easter Ramirez; mother-in-law, Stanislawa Dworakowski; sister-in-law, Roseli Dworakowski Braga; and brother-in-law, Miltom Lobato Braga, all from Brazil. He was preceded in death by his father, Bicente Chavira, and father-in-law, Newton Lobato Braga.

The Rosary is Sunday starting at 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the funeral home, and funeral Mass is Monday, June 24, 2013, at 10 a.m., at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. Burial will follow at Woodland Park Cemetery. Pallbearers are David Ramirez, Amaro Gonzales, Armando Gonzales, Ernesto Ramirez, Gary Gilles and Ray Price.
