Alfred Vela, 66, of Moody passed away Friday, August 21, 2020 at his home surrounded by his family.

Alfred was born June 25, 1954 to Reyes and Elisa (Rios) Vela in Yorktown, Texas.

I just remember how much my dad Erasmo Rios Sr. would take us around to your family's house and just sit and talk...family was always important and I remember seeing Velas face light up with my dads jokes.

Teodora, haven't seen the two of you in years, but I have thought of you'll often. I remember Alfred working with Frank out of town (as a roofer if my memory is correct). You and I would pack up the kids and go where they were working. I remember you teaching me how to make crunchy taco shells! There wasn't a time when we saw you two at the festivals or the fair that you'll didn't stop and speak to us; you were like a young couple in love holding hands or hugging. I'm sure when Alfred left this earth that Frank was asking him what took him so long! My blessings and condolences to you and the family! -- Patty Nevarez
