Rodolfo (Rudy) Garcia Serrato Sr


Rodolfo (Rudy) Garcia Serrato Sr., 91 was born February 5, 1930 in Lockhart, Texas. He was called to his eternal resting place December 27, 2021.

He served proudly in the Korean War with the US Army. He loved family time with his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, dancing with his beautiful Rosa, walking the streets of Lockhart with his stick, picking pecans and Dairy Queen burgers. Each one of us have beautiful memories to cherish forever. From all his lil sayings, made up words, his whistle, and putting on a show for us, he could also be a comedian. He spent countless hours playing outside with the grandchildren and eating a vanilla ice cream cone every night. He loved talking about the ole days. We are so grateful for a memorable last goodbye, until we meet again.

Rudy is survived by his wife, Rosalvina of 65 years and three children; Theresa Contreras, Rodolfo Serrato Jr. and wife Sandra, Ester Amesquita and husband Alberto; grandchildren Angela Cervantes and husband Ruben, Lisa Flores, Eddie Flores, Ryan Serrato and wife Kristy, Rudy Serrato, III and wife Laci, Alberto Amesquita; great grandchildren Jacob Cervantes and wife Joanna, Nathan, Anniston, Charles, Ellanie and William Serrato; sister in laws, Ramona Serrato and Theresa Ybarra; numerous nieces, nephews and our backyard family.
