Alberto "Beto" M Medrano

Alberto M. "Beto" Medrano, resident of Brownsville, TX, passed to his heavenly home on Friday, on the 21st of October. He was born in July 1939 in Brownsville, TX to the late Maria M. Medrano and Francisco Medrano.
He is survived by his loving wife of forty-two years, (Mary) Elizabeth C. Medrano, his two children Marisa M. Medrano and David A. Medrano, his grandson Noah David Medrano, and extended family.
He graduated from Brownsville High School and then enlisted in the U.S. Army and the Texas National Guard. He later attended Pan American University with a Double Major Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology.
His passion in Criminal Justice led him to work as a police officer for the cities of Brownsville and Edinburg. His love for law enforcement led his career path to becoming a Juvenile Probation officer for Cameron County, a Parole officer for the Texas Board of Pardons & Parole, and as a Criminal Justice Teacher. Beto worked a total of forty years within the Criminal Justice realm; twenty-three of those years for the Brownsville Independent School District.
Although his life was dedicated to his family he held a special place in his heart for the youth of this community. Beto served on numerous civic organizations in various capacities, such as Good Neighbor Settlement House, Esperanza Home for Boys, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Brownsville Crime Stoppers, Brownsville Jaycees, the Brownsville Teacher's Credit Union, and the West Brownsville Lions Club.
The family wishes to express their deep appreciation for Dr. Reynoso, Dr. Pelly and Dr. Udeh as well as the staff of Ebony Lake Nursing Home for the loving care that was provided for him during this difficult journey in his life. The family would like to express a special thank you to Lupita and Enrique who went above and beyond in their care for him.
His love for God was always present in his life as was the love for his family and friends. He treasured the time he spent with them. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Brownsville where he served as a Deacon for several years.
Visitation will be on Monday, Oct. 24, 2016, from 5:00 to 9:00 PM with a prayer service at 7:00PM in the East Chapel at Darling-Mouser Funeral Home. The funeral service will be at 3:00 pm on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, at the First Presbyterian Church, 435 Palm Blvd., in Brownsville, Texas. We ask that everyone go directly to First Presbyterian as their will not be a procession from the funeral home to the church. Committal services will follow at Buena Vista Burial Park.
David A. Medrano, John Bass, Michael Ayala, Javier Lozano, Omar Ortiz and George Gavito are honored to be serving as Beto's pallbearers. Honorary Pallbearers are his friends and ex-students whom he cherished. The VFW Post 2035 Funeral Honor Guard will render military honors at the graveside.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the First Presbyterian Church, 435 Palm Blvd., Brownsville, Texas 78520 or to the charity of choice.
