Daniel Rey was born April 17, 1945, to Agustin and Inez (Natividad) Rey, Sr. in Midland, TX. He married Jovita Longoria in 1995 in Lubbock, TX. Daniel began working at the age of 10 and never had a gap in his yearly social security statement from that year forward. This is probably why he devoted the last 40+ years of his life assisting people with disability. Daniel loved the Lord, his family, old cars, the Texas Tech Red Raiders, diet Dr. Pepper and his dog Marley – but mostly his grandkids. He was a wonderful man to have on your side – because he was always your biggest supporter in whatever you chose to do. He went out of his way to be helpful and positive and always tried to see the best in in all situations and in all people. He valued everyone he came in contact with and truly made a difference in this world.
Mr. Rey is survived by his wife, Jovita Rey; children, Angie Denman and husband Michael; Michael Rey; Raul Garcia and wife Tasha; Jennifer Garcia; Cynthia Anguiano and husband Leonard; and Candy Mercado; grandchildren, Morgan Rey, Alexandra Rey, Alyssa Garcia, Audrianna Garcia, Miah Saucedo, Gunner Rey, Daniel Rey, Macon Rey, Anthony, Jeremy and Ben Garza; Michaela Mercado; Steven and Santana Garcia and Laura Gonzales; and siblings, Agustin Rey, Jr. and wife Alicia, Tomas Rey and wife Rosa, Angie Pedroza and husband Mario and Luis Rey and wife Judy.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Agustin and Inez Rey; and siblings, Juan Rey, Nieves Rey, Mary Sanchez, Senon Ray and Seneido Rey.
The family of Daniel Rey suggest memorial donations to a charity of your choice in his memory.
The Family would also like to say a special thank you to Lupe Ruiz for being such a close friend to Mr. Rey.
