In memory of
Albert E. Rincon
Albert E. Rincon April 7, 1923 - April 12, 2017 Albert E. Rincon was born in El Paso, TX on April 7th, 1923 to Celestina and Juan Rincon. He died on April 12th, 2017, just 5 days past his 94th birthday. May he rest in the arms of our Lord, our God. He is preceded in death by his son, John David Rincon, his parents, Juan and Celestina, his sisters, Antonia, Paula, Mary and Mozelle, brothers Manuel and John, several nephews and a niece. Albert is survived by his wife Adelia to whom he was married to for 69 ½ years. He also leaves behind his children and their spouses, Albert Dale and Billie, Anthony Joseph and Denise, Mark Steven and Alex, and daughter Barbara. Also surviving are his two remaining sisters, Josie Lopez and Carolyn Casaus. Albert was blessed with 6 grandchildren, Joanna, Charie, Alison, Jonathon, Skye and Daniel and 10 great grandchildren. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews and friends. Known as "Uncle Albert" to many of his children's friends he became something of a cult figure to them. Mimicking his voice and mannerisms became a great pastime. Dad was greatly loved and admired. As one of the "Greatest Generation", dad proudly served his country in the Army during WWII receiving the American Theater Ribbon, European African Middle Eastern Ribbon, WWII Victory Medal and Good Conduct Medal. After leaving Seligman Arizona, where he grew up, he spent the next 42 years working for the Santa Fe RR in Barstow. Providing for his family was always Albert's top priority and he often worked two or more jobs to give his family a good life and we never heard him complain about it. His work ethic was a great example for his children. After retiring from the Fe, he generously gave of his time and energy to grounds keeping at Mt. St. Joseph's church and rectory until his hip wore out and became too painful for him to continue. With the help of his wife, he proudly kept his yard in beautiful condition, especially his roses. He was always available to help a friend in need. Albert was known for his generosity and his sense of humor. He looked forward to time spent with his children and grandkids. He was happiest with a baby on his lap. He also looked forward to eating his wife's good cooking, never leaving a scrap on his plate and always having room for dessert. Dad created lasting memories for his family, from churning the ice cream maker in the summer to the car or train trips to visit family in Arizona. You are much beloved. Thank you Dad. May he enjoy a heavenly reunion with all that went before him. Funeral services will be Tuesday, April 25th at Mt. St. Joseph's Catholic Church on the corner of Mt. Vernon and Barstow Road. Visitation is at 9 am with mass afterwards. Burial following at Desert View Memorial Cemetery. Please join the family for a celebration of Albert's life reception after burial at Mt. St. Joseph's reception hall located at opposite from where the church is.
