Javier Nino passed away on January 3, 2022 with his family at his side at the age of 63. He was born on July 13, 1958 to Jose and Juanita Nino in Corpus Christi, TX.
Javier attended Lamar Elementary, Martin Middle School, and graduated from W.B. Ray High School. He attended Del Mar and earned an Associate Degree in Art.
Javier had many talents and he showed them in the careers he chose. He was a chef at a few restaurants in town and was known for his delicious meals he served his family. His true passion was art which he put in play by being a graphic silk screener. He designed many t-shirts for many events. He worked at Padre Screening and Mira’s for a few years.
Javier would paint during his free time, and he was asked to display many of his paintings at an Art Center in Louisiana. This was a great accomplishment that was a great source of pride for him. He continued his sketching and painting until his illness no longer allowed it.
Javier was preceded in death by his parents, Jose and Juanita Nino, and brothers, Joe Nino, Jr. and Richard Lee Nino.
He is survived by his sisters, Maria Beavan, Rosario Trevino, and Grace Nino Hernandez (Jose); brothers, Fernando Nino and Daniel Nino; and the joy of his life, his nephew, David Trevino (Marcella).
The family will receive condolences on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, at Christ the King Catholic Church, 3423 Rojo St; with a Holy Rosary to be recited at 9:00 followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 9:30 AM. A funeral cortege will depart the church at 10:30 AM for Rite of Committal and Interment at Memory Gardens Cemetery.
