Tribute

Richard Cervantes passed away suddenly on Friday January 14, 2022. He was born on October 29, 1975 to the late Luz A. Cervantes and Beatrice L. Cervantes. Richard was a valued employee of ACT Advance Call Center Technologies in Harlingen.

As a young boy, Richard always made people laugh. As a teenager and adult, he enjoyed cooking amazingly delicious briskets and baking his famous cheesecakes that all loved. He always enjoyed being a DJ at parties with his friends; many knew him as DJ GMP.

He was a selfless person and always put others before himself. He was loved by so many and will be missed dearly.

Richard is preceded in death by his father Luz A. Cervantes; his paternal grandmother, Victoria Cervantes; his paternal grandfather, Luz Cervantes; his maternal grandmother, Eulalia Lino; and maternal grandfather, Manuel Lino, Sr.
