Carlos & Raquel Pacheco

July 24, 2020

Tribute

Carlos enlisted into the Air Force at the age of eighteen; serving as a Civil Engineer eventually retiring after 22 years as a Master Sergeant. He utilized the skills the military equipped him with to develop a career at UT Southwestern. After meeting Raquel, he joyfully married the love of his life on August 21st, 1971. They resided in Del Rio where Carlos was stationed for 18 years and eventually settling down in the Dallas area to enjoy their children, grandchildren, and many family members. Carlos and Raquel were very much in love. Carlos always had a smile on his face he was a giving person and had such a servant's heart for his wife, living out what it means to love unconditionally. Raquel would always insist on dancing with Carlos, whether it was from their first meeting or in their last days together. Raquel was always the life of the party inviting a spirit of laughter and enthusiasm wherever she went. Carlos was a man of integrity, patience, and his wife's strong tower.

“To Those Who Loved Us”

The Day God Called You Both Home

You never said I'm leaving

You never said goodbye

You were gone before we knew it

And only God knew why

In life you were both loved Deeply

In death we love you still

In our hearts you hold a special place

No one could ever fill

A million times we pleaded for you

A million times we cried

If love alone could have saved you

You would have never died

It broke our hearts to lose you both

But you didn't go alone

For part of us went with you

The Day God Called You Home
