Jose "Odilon" Guerrero

December 18, 1940 — September 2, 2023

Damon

Jose “Odilon” Guerrero, a beloved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away on September 2, 2023, at his residence in Damon, Texas. He was born on December 18, 1940, in San Jose de Ojo Zarco, Guanajuato, Mexico to Pablo Guerrero Guerra and Maria de Socorro Guerrero Lopez.

Jose lived a life full of hard work and dedication. From a young age, he learned the value of perseverance and commitment. After marriage, he brought his family to the United States, and eventually settled down in Damon, TX. He worked at Brazos Citrus Nursery (formerly Varner Creek Nursery) for 25 years.

While landscaping was his profession, Jose's true joy came from spending time with his family. He enjoyed barbecuing, and being surrounded by his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He loved his wife of many years, Angelica Ramirez Guerrero, who supported him throughout their journey together. Together, they raised a wonderful family that brought them immense pride and joy.

Jose had a giving personality and was always ready to lend a helping hand. Whether it was repairing something or tending to his garden, Jose approached every task with dedication, determination, and humor.

Jose is survived by his wife of 62 years, Angelica Ramirez Guerrero; his children Micaela Cruz (David) of Damon, TX; San Juana Garcia (Jose) of West Columbia, TX; Salvador Guerrero (Marcela) of West Columbia, TX; Rosalinda Leon (Cesar) of Damon, TX; Socorro Garcia (Gabriel) of Damon, TX; Jose Luis Guerrero (Jessica) of Damon, TX. He is also survived by 27 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild. He is preceded in death by his daughter, Irma Moreno, and grandson, Edgar Guerrero.

Relatives and friends are invited to his viewing on Thursday, September 7th from 5-8 pm and again on Friday, September 8th from 1-2pm at C.T. Baker Funeral Home 634 S.
