On Saturday, December 12, 2020, Esteban “Steve” Aguayo, loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away at the age of 71. Steve was born on November 28, 1949 in San Diego, Texas to Cruz and Rafaela (Perez) Aguayo.

Steve was a teacher/coach for many years, starting his career in education in Coldspring ISD. Then going on to teach in Huntsville ISD, Trinity ISD, and Richards ISD. During his years of teaching, he would work summers by umpiring the Huntsville adult league softball games. Steve retired from education in 2008 to work on his ranch with his cows. Steve was an active and devout member of St. Thomas Catholic Church. For many Christmases, Steve organized a toy and food drive through the church, for the less fortunate. He always had a giving heart and when he came across a good deal, he would stock up and share with family and friends he came across. Steve was a true fan of the Dallas Cowboys, even when they were on a losing streak. The thing that brought him the most joy was his grandchildren. He would do absolutely anything for them and loved being around them.

He is survived by Belia, his wife of 49 years; son, Michael (Thresa)Aguayo; daughters, Marisela (Miguel)Pineda & Isabel (Daniel)Kirwin; grandchildren, Brenda, Eric, Kinsley, and Adelyn.
