Emilio C. Perez Jr.

Emilio Perez, Jr., 58, of Breckenridge, passed away on Thursday, February 4, 2021. His funeral service will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, February 14, 2021, at the Melton-Kitchens Chapel of Memories. The family will welcome friends for a visitation on Saturday, February 13, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

Emilio was born on August 28, 1962, in Breckenridge to parents Emilio and Frances Perez. He was a 1980 Buckaroo graduate and lived his entire life in the community where he was born and raised. Emilio was known for being both caring and loving, and for his family being the most important aspect of his life. He was the guy that always put others before himself and was always willing to go out of his way to help others regardless of what their situation might be. Emilio was a local contractor, but the family knew him as a “Jack of All Trades.” He was a tough man that never would show his weakness and was the last of a dying breed who always kept his word – no matter what. His generation was known to always work hard, pay your debts, and owe no man any money.

Emilio loved to sing – something he was good at – as well as being the center of attention with his storytelling and being the life of all the family gatherings. And when time allowed, he would enjoy a good fishing or hunting trip. At the end of the day, the time he spent with his boys and their families was held sacred.

Emilio was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Alex Perez.

He is survived by his four sons, Emilio Maya of Breckenridge, Emmanuel Perez of Abilene, Alex Perez of Garland, and Joshua Perez of Brownwood; sister, Lucy Perez of Abilene; three brothers, Richard Perez, Johny Perez, and Joe Perez, all of Breckenridge; as well as many grandchildren.

Memorial donations can be made to the Emilio Perez Jr. Funeral Fund at First National Bank in Breckenridge. Condolences may be made online at
