Obituary

Fidel Sabedra, 86, was called to his heavenly home on Monday, August 24, 2020.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, August 27th from 5:00pm-7:00pm, with a rosary to be recited at 6:00pm at Grace Funeral Home, 2401 Houston Hwy. Funeral services will be held on Friday, August 28th at 10:00am at Grace Funeral Home. Burial with full military honors to follow at Resurrection Cemetery.

Fidel was born August 20, 1934 in La Ward, Texas to the late Manuel and Louisa Sabedra. Fidel led a long productive life. He served in the military for 26 years, where he became an Airborne Ranger and a Vietnam veteran. This career took him to many countries, including Germany where he met and fell in love with Heidemarie Mader. Looking through old photographs, one can see the love he felt for his wife, who passed in June 2008. He struggled to cope without her. Their children, Sandra Kennemer of Victoria, Janice Pineda of Midland, Rick Sabedra, Patrick (Felice) Sabedra, both in Victoria and Jeff Sabedra of Port Lavaca, owe much gratitude to him. He did his best in raising a family in an imperfect world. In his last days, the children he cared for years ago became his caregivers.

In addition to his surviving children, he leaves behind several grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all who have their own special memories of how he touched them.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Heidemarie Sabedra; parents, Manuel and Louisa Sabedra; brothers, Abel, Alfred, Delfino and David; sisters, Elvira and Ermenia; and daughter, Viola. 
 
Pallbearers are Tyler Kennemer, Thomas Kennemer, Jesus “Jay” Corrella, Nick Sabedra, Blair Carter and Michael Sabedra.

The family wishes to thank Harbor Hospice for their help and kindness.

Although the family is saddened by his death, they are comforted by the knowledge he has joined the love of his life.
