A great man, respectful son, caring brother, devoted husband, admired uncle, amazing dad, and super grandpa, Adelaido “Leto” Manriquez, age 66, passed away peacefully at his home in Mineral Wells on Saturday, November 2, 2018, at 1:51 p.m. surrounded by his family. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, November 11, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses with Matt Reagle officiating. Visitation will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Saturday, November 10, at Morehart Mortuary.

He was born December 16, 1951, in Lometa, Texas, to Pedro and Anna Manriquez. He married Juliana (Santos) Manriquez on January 28, 1972, in Breckenridge, Texas. He retired after 40 years in the gas and oilfield. It began with Mobil before it merged with Exxon to be Exxon/Mobil, then to Texas Pacific, and next The Western Company. He continued to succeed by moving to Mineral Wells to work for BJ, BJ Unichem, and then to Multi-Chem which was later bought by Halliburton. His committed experience and knowledge gave him the opportunities to be an inventor and a trainer. During these years in this industry, we cherished listening about him working throughout the state of Texas, in Colorado, in New Mexico, in Pennsylvania, and in North Dakota. He dedicated his life to Jehovah through baptism on June 22, 1991, and enjoyed teaching the Word of Jehovah daily. He never skipped a day being positive and encouraging with the kindest heart to help anyone. He always put his family first.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Juliana; four daughters, Angelita and fiancé Joe Hooper, Elizabeth, Anita and husband Donny Green, Adelaide; and one son, Luis; his dad and best friend, Pedro; brothers, Benny and Luis; sisters, Jacinta, Romona, Sally, Barbara; 13 grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

Leto was preceded in death by his mother, Anna Manriquez; grandparents, Paulina and Luis Manriquez; and uncle, Miguel Manriquez.

Leto’s family has set up an account at Breckenridge Interbank and memorials may be made to it. Condolences may be made online at www.morehartmortuary.net.
