Mr. Anselmo Diaz,87, passed into eternal rest Sunday, June 21,2020 at his residence in McAllen. Anselmo was born in La Azucar , Mexico on August 11,1932 to Leonardo and Rita (Benavidez) Diaz. Anselmo had lived in McAllen for most of his life.
Anselmo Diaz was a man who was adored by his entire family. He was an incredible father to his four children. They were raised to be strong and loving just like he was. He spoiled his seven grandchildren with every opportunity he had and made sure they knew that they were loved. He lived a life filled with Christ and that was evident in everything he did, from spending every Sunday morning eating breakfast with his family to going out and drinking coffee with his friends. His life will be reflected in the lives of all his family and friends. His compassion, humor, and light hearted nature is what was felt every time he entered and left a room. We now find peace with the fact that he is truly at home. He lives a heavenly life filled with joy knowing that those he left behind are left with precious memories to hold onto before we all rejoice again.
Psalm 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
He was preceded in death by his parents.
