In loving memory of Mario Reyes Perales, beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend. He blessed the world with his birth on January 23, 1944. He was born in Cuidad Acuna, Coahuila, Mexico to Heriberto and Herminia Perales and entered into eternal rest on March 29,2023 in Fort Worth, Texas. His strong work ethic began as a child. He eventually began working at a grocery store in Mexico, where he met his future wife and lifelong companion, Margaret “Yoli” Ozuna, the niece of the grocery store owner. He eventually emigrated to Fort Worth with his wife and son, and began a career in woodworking, which was also his lifelong hobby. He and Margaret had one more surviving child, a daughter. They experienced the heartache of infant loss twice after. Throughout his life, in joyous times and difficult ones, he was a hard worker and a good provider for his family. His love for his family was fierce and the feeling was and is mutual. He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Margaret Perales, his son, Mario Perales and wife Marlene, his daughter, Rachel Perales, and his grandchildren Jacob and Noah Perales and Marissa and Chloe Kepple, as well as their partners and countless nieces, nephews, and godchildren. He will be sorely missed, but his memory and legacy of hard work and strong family bonds will live forever.
