Armando Ybarra

August 8, 1945 — August 27, 2021

Armando Ybarra Sr., 76, passed away Friday, August 27, 2021 at 12:19 p.m. surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Mercedes, Texas to Olivia De La Peña Ybarra and Ricardo Ibarra.

He is preceded in death by his loving mother, Olivia De La Peña Ybarra, father, Ricardo Ibarra, and siblings, Arnoldo Javier Ibarra and Sergio Alberto Ibarra.

He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Adelina Reyes Ybarra; his children, Arnoldo (Connie) Ybarra, Dahlia Yvette (Martin) Savedra, Amanda (Luis) Saavedra, Odelia (Adolfo) Ramon, and Armando Ybarra Jr.; 14 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren; siblings, Olga (Alfredo) Reyes, Elvia (Gilbert Sr.) Santana, Richard (Priscilla) Ybarra, María del Refugio (Omar) Reyes, Cleotilde (John) Medeiros, Dalia Ruth (Rolando) De la Rosa, Jose Hugo (Ruby) Ibarra, Luis Roberto Ibarra, Gloria Patricia (Tony) Alcantar; numerous nieces and nephews; and his only surviving uncle, Jose (Pepe) De La Peña.

Armando's number one priority was making sure his beloved wife was happy and that she had everything she needed. He enjoyed being home at his ranch, and loved sitting outside for hours enjoying nature knowing it was the creation of our Father God. He made sure his yard was cut and clean for God’s satisfaction before sitting out to enjoy his hard work. He was an active person and believed exercise was very important and often walked up to 5 miles a day and enjoyed it! On other days, he enjoyed visiting his siblings to enjoy a cup of coffee with pan dulce, laugh, catch up on things, and study and read the word of God.

His hobbies were fishing, bowling, woodwork, baking, and outdoor activities. He loved sports such as football and boxing and the Dallas Cowboys which he loved regardless whether they won or lost. He enjoyed playing Candy Crush before bedtime and loved the challenge!
