Pablo was born in Chihuahua, Mexico on July 23, 1927 to Manuel Levario and Maria Grado Levario and was married to the late Maximina Saenz Lebario for 49 years. In his early years, his passion for animals and land brought him to Alpine, Texas where he worked as a rancher at the Kokernot Ranch and later worked in the fields and farms of West Texas and the Panhandle area as a contractor. Pablo was a true cowboy in all sense of the word, from his signature hats down to his cowboy boots. He never met a stranger and was always ready to share a story. He will be forever missed. Pablo is preceded in death by his parents and children: Eloisa Lebario, Irene Garcia, Juanita Ramirez, and Paulito Lebario; sisters, Manuela Leyva, Agripina Navarro, Socorro Ramos, Maria Levario, and Josefina Moreno; and brothers, Alvino Levario Grado and Jesus Levario Grado. He is survived by his daughters, Estella Beltran and husband Fulgencio, Grace Prozeller and husband John, Elizabeth Nevarez and husband Javier, and Laura Gutierrez and husband Loui Manuel; sons, Pablo Lebario III and wife Stephanie and Manuel Lebario, all of Midland; daughter, Marisa Lebario Lucero and husband Conrad of Lubbock, Texas; sons, Paul Lebario, Jr. and wife Lollie of Green River, Wyoming, Richard Lebario, and Alonso "Allen" Lebario; daughters, Cecelia Chavarria, Lydia Lebario, Alice Cummings, and Patricia Casias; and by several loving grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and nephews and nieces. Pallbearers will be Pablo Lebario III, Manuel Lebario, Anthony Lebario, Loui Manuel Gutierrez, Brad Olson, Brent Villarreal, Andrew Beltran, Jace Prozeller, Ezekiel Lebario, and Nathenial Lebario. Honorary pallbearers will be Luke Conrad Lucero, Alex Esquivel, Febian Mier, Nickolas Olson, Leonardo Mier, Juan Eduardo Emiliano, Ace Rodriguez, and Jaxson Autry.
