Adalberto Hurtado passed away November 10, 2018 at the age of 70.
Adalberto was born April 24, 1948 in La Joyita, Mexico to Jesus Flores Hurtado and Maria De La Luz Morales. One of eight children, Adalberto was a kind and funny kid who had a great relationship with his siblings and was very protective of them all. Adalberto came to the United States in 2003.
Adalberto was married to his beloved wife Maria for 48 and a half years. He was planning a vow renewal for their golden anniversary to give her the wedding she did not get when they originally married. The two were blessed with seven children and sixteen grandchildren. His grandchildren brought out the best in him. He was able to turn his life around because he wanted to be the best for them. He supported his family by working at Sanderson Farms. Although he retired in July 2017, he could not stand being idle, so he went back to work. The only day he would not work was on his birthday because it was his favorite day.
Adalberto was a wonderful story teller with an amazing memory for detail. He also loved to dance and would often just dance around the room by himself. A very patient man, he did not suffer from low self-esteem. In his free time, he enjoyed guns and window shopping. He loved to eat spicy homemade salsa and drink his favorite atole. Adalberto was a very calm man, taking life day by day. He never looked at the negative aspect of things and did not worry about the things he could not control. A devout Catholic, Adalberto spent a lot of time in prayer at home.
Adalberto leaves behind his beloved wife Maria, his son and daughter-in-law Alonso and Dixciana Hurtado, his daughter and son-in-law Veronica and Martin Hurtado, his son and daughter-in-law Juan Antonio and Maria Hurtado, his son and daughter-in-law Alberto and Teresa Hurtado, his son and daughter-in-law Javier and Erica Hurtado, his son and daughter-in-law Miguel and Christina Hurtado, his son Jorge Hurtado, and his sixteen grandchildren. He will be deeply missed.
To honor Adalberto’s life, his family has planned a time of visitation for Tuesday, November 13 from 2 to 7 PM at Hillier Funeral Home of College Station, followed immediately with a rosary service at 7. He will return home to Mexico for burial.
