Delfor Maria Alvarez

Delfor Maria Alvarez was reunited with his eternal companion on April 30th, 2019, surrounded by his loving family. Delfor was born on May 29, 1918, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He came to United States with his wife and two children 61 years ago, where their third child was born. Delfor stayed in Arizona the rest of his days. He dedicated his life to his family, friends, and his faith. His life of service to his faith and others set an example for all to follow. Delfor is survived by his children, Elisabet E. Cardona (Hector-deceased), Del M. Alvarez (Jo Ann), and L. Lynette Speroni (Bill), and grandchildren, Shawn, Giselle (Chris), Chari (Wade), Marci (Troy), Lance (Anna), Chase (Tiffany), Briana (Aaron), and Samantha.  Delfor’s greatest joy were his eight grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. He was seldom found without a child on his knee. He made each child feel special and loved unconditionally. He was adored by all of his family. He was a man of few words but was a prolific writer of poetry, through which he expressed his feelings and revealed a man with a very tender heart. He had a deep gratitude for God’s love and tender mercies and blessings and acknowledged the source of his blessings through his poetry. His ability to recite poems from memory stayed with him to the end. He would always remind his family to “Remember the Alamo” … His way of reminding us to remember those things that were most important…We will remember, ALWAYS. Until we are together again for time and all eternity.

    I can only be grateful- I’m humbled & so blessed that I had the honor of being your granddaughter. . Thank you for loving me unconditionally. I loved crawling up on your lap, being cuddled, while you sang Spanish songs. It was the safest place in the world it seemed. Thank you for being a shelter from the storms, thank you for the laughter and the poetry. I promise to always try to live a life you will be proud of. You know what? I love you.

    Daddy, I miss you so much. My protector, my rock. You taught me that I didn’t have to be a boy to do manly things. You taught me that hard work would pay off, even though at times it didn’t seem like it. You had faith in my abilities, you loved me unconditionally. I couldn’t have asked for a better dad. Te adoro Papito. Siempre mi viejo gaucho lindo.
