Raul Davila Mandujano
September 19, 1963 – January 29, 2017
2 Timothy 4:7 “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
Being that he was such a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys, the family would like to encourage everyone to wear Dallas Cowboy gear in his honor.
Roy Mandujano, 53, went to be with Jesus on January 29, 2017 with his family by his side after a brief illness. Visitation (6pm) and Rosary (7:30pm) are scheduled for Thursday, February 2, 2017 at the funeral home. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 1pm on Friday, February 3, 2017 at St. Joseph Catholic Church. Interment will follow in Bryan City Cemetery. Reverend Monsignor John A. McCaffrey will officiate. Funeral services are in the care of Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers-Bryan/College Station.
He was born in Chicago, IL on September 19, 1963 to Jose and Carolina Mandujano. At three weeks of age he moved to the Bryan-College Station area where he remained a lifelong resident. He attended A&M Consolidated, played catcher and pitcher for the College Station Little League Senators, White Sox, and Yankees. His love of baseball carried over into his adulthood, assisting with coaching his son’s team for several years. Of course, he also loved football and the Dallas Cowboys were his favorite team.
He enjoyed watching NASCAR, collecting Hot Wheels and sports memorabilia. However, his favorite thing to do was barbecuing and listening to music with his family and friends, especially children. He was funny, always making everyone laugh and ensuring they had a good time. Roy also spent many years volunteering handing out Thanksgiving fixings to those in need. He never met a stranger, touching everyone who crossed his path, going out of his way to help anyone, asking nothing in return.
He worked for Jackie Blankenship Construction for more than 20 years. Working with concrete, doing carpentry work, and landscaping were a few of the many talents he possessed. His strong work ethics carried over into his holiday decorating as well, taking precise measurements and paying close attention to details so that his Christmas lights around the house were perfect and Halloween was always fun!
Roy is preceded in death by his father, Jose Mandujano; his grandparents, Leandro & Alice Davila, and aunt, Yolanda Morales.
Roy is survived by his wife, Debora, sons Roy, Robert, Justin & daughter, Yolanda. Also his mother, Carolina Mandujano, brothers Johnny Yeppez and wife, Dorothy; Joe Mandujano; sisters Susan Delius and husband Fred, Alicia Umanzor and husband Julio, and numerous nieces and nephews.
His family and friends would like to thank God for sharing His son, Roy with them. His family would also like to thank Dr Tan, nurses Vicki and Laura, but especially Kitty from Traditions Hospice for her compassion and caring heart.
