Oscar G. Ortiz Jr., a loving and spirited individual, passed away on September 20, 2023, in Corpus Christi, Texas. He was born on July 29, 1973, in Alice, Texas, to his beloved parents, Oscar R. and Herminia Ortiz.
Oscar was preceded in death by his mother, Herminia Garza Ortiz; paternal grandparents, Octavio and Gertrudes Ortiz Sr.; maternal grandparents, Calixtro and Gregoria Garza; uncles, Carlos Garza, Octavio Ortiz Jr., and Juan Jesus Ortiz; and aunts, Otelia Gutierrez, Raquel Garza, Maria Salinas, and Paula Salinas.
Left to cherish his memory are his father, Oscar R. (Isabel) Ortiz; son, Oscar Israel Ortiz; daughters, Crystal Jewels Ortiz and Emily Rose Ortiz; step-daughters, Jovita Dion (Mathew) Lopez, and Alina Manuel (Josh) Rode; brothers, Jesse (Shelly) Ortiz, Tony Ortiz, Danny Lee Ortiz, and Oscar Octavio Ortiz; aunts, Lionicia Ortiz, Juanita Ramon, and Noelia Pacheco; uncles, Luis Ortiz, Canuto (Eloisa) Ortiz, Marcelo (Terry) Ortiz, and Librado Ortiz; and nine grandchildren, numerous cousins, nieces, nephew, extended family, and dear friends. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him and loved him.
Oscar attended school at the Orange Grove Independent School District where he was known for his friendly demeanor. He was a hard worker who dedicated many years to the oil field, drilling rigs, and driving 18 wheelers. Known as a jack of all trades, Oscar could fix anything and was always ready to lend a hand.
Oscar lived his life with passion and joy. He loved going to the lake, barbecuing, and savoring a cold Bud Lite while listening to rock music or singing along to the tunes of Michael Salgado or Ramon Ayala; always with a big smile on his face. Oscar was also passionate about bodybuilding, weightlifting, and riding his Honda Motorcycle. But more than anything, he loved spending time with his family, always making sure they didn’t need anything, ready to help, and provide or assist anyone in need.
