In Memory

Josue Elizondo

Funeral services for Josué D. Elizondo, 37, of Lufkin, will be held Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Iglesia Bautista La Casa Del Alfarero in Redland with Dr. Javier Elizondo officiating. Interment will follow at the Garden of Memories Memorial Park.

          Josué was born May 12, 1982 in Muenster, Texas, to Rev. Marcos Elizondo and Raquel Sifuentes Elizondo and died Wednesday, May 22, 2019 in Houston.

          Josué is the son of Rev. Marcos and Raquel Elizondo. He was the youngest of two sons. Josué attended Lufkin High School and was attending Houston Baptist University for a degree in Journalism and Video and Film Editing. He worked as sports editor, and editor in chief of The Collegiate Magazine. Josué loved writing stories and reading books that would help him on his major.

          Josué, like his brother Juan Marcos, loved for his parents to pray with him. He was a good podcast critic. Josué would share with us on why a podcast was or wasn’t good. He was excellent on guessing which company would do good in the stock market. All of these good guesses came out of what he was reading. Another good thing was that he was an excellent cook, just as Juan Marcos was. They could cook in the house or in the open. Whatever they cooked, came out great. Fishing was his first love. When Juan Marcos and Josué were little, their parents would take them fishing at Lake Texoma. That was a great experience for them.

          He is survived by his parents, Rev. Marcos and Raquel Elizondo; his beloved niece Averie J Elizondo; uncles and aunts, Iaías and Alma Sifuentes, Antonio and Romelia Camargo, Juan and Maricela Sifuentes, Herlinda Monsiváis, Javier and Sandee Elizondo, Yolanda Elizondo, Joel Elizondo, Roberto and Elizabeth Martínez, and Alberto Elizondo; many cousins; and his pet English bulldog, Cosmo.

          He was preceded in death by his dear brother Juan Marcos Elizondo; grandparents, Juan and Faustina Sifuentes, Pedro Elizondo, and Eleazar and Julia Sáenz.

          Pallbearers will be Toby Derrow, Alex Forney, Robert Forney, Peter Chhay, Isaías J. Sifuentes, and Alberto Elizondo.

          Visitation will be held on Saturday, May 25, 2019 at Iglesia Bautista La Casa Del Alfarero from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. prior to the funeral service.
