Molina, Jr, Alberto

-

Alberto Molina, Jr. was born April 22, 1967 in McKinney Texas to Alberto Molina, Sr. and Marina (née Lopez) Molina. Alberto was raised in McKinney and graduated McKinney High School in 1985. He spent his entire life in his beloved hometown until relocating to Garland, Texas in the spring of 2016.

Alberto was married to his longtime childhood friend, high school sweetheart, and love of his life, Norma (née Ayala) Molina until her passing in December 2014. Losing her was very hard on him…he had a lifetime enjoyment of cheering on his favorite sports teams & collecting autographs from his favorite players, especially his Dallas Cowboys. He also enjoyed rocking out to his favorite bands most notably his 80s rock (Van Halen, GNR & Motley Crue), re-painting sports figures, doing photo edits & doing his own custom framing. These hobbies all kept him busy until he was reunited with Norma.

Alberto is preceeded in death by his parents Marina and Alberto, Sr., little sister Monica (Molina) Cruz, and loving wife Norma. He is survived by his daughters Melanie Molina and Kristina Molina, little brother and built in best friend, Ricardo Molina, nieces Alex Cruz and Marina Molina, and his beloved 3 cats, Gibbsy, Selina K, and Harley Q.  He will be very missed. As Jason Aldean sings in a song Alberto loved, “let’s not say goodbye…I’ll see you when I see you.”

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at North Dallas Funeral Home 2710 Valley View Lane Farmers Branch, TX 75234 at 4:00PM

Al,
My buddy and brother I will definitely miss our debates about our favorite sports teams. Our talks about life and the similarities in lives even though we grew up 1500 miles apart. Bro it’s been awhile since we saw each other but we never fell out of step when we linked back up. I am going to miss you my friend especially now that football season has started. Rest easy with your lovely wife bro. Love you always brother.

Daddy,
What am I going to do without you? I thought I would be old when you left us. My heart is shattered and I miss you so much. You were the BEST Daddy we could ever ask for. You taught us so much and you were my go-to guy for all my life questions. Although I’m glad you are with Mommy again and in a better place than anyone on earth, it’s going to take time for me to accept that. I will see you again. Rock out with Eddie and save me a seat. Tell everyone “hi” from me. I will love you and miss you always.

Your “Baby Girl”

Melanie M says:

Daddy,
I cannot believe this. Less than 7 years after Mom….I thought I would be old when I had to say goodbye to you. You were the BEST Daddy and I will miss you always. Go be with all our loved ones again. I will be waiting for the joyful day I see you all again. Love, your “Baby Girl”
