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.”
