Raul Fuentes

Obituary of Raul Flores Fuentes

Raul Flores Fuentes is a husband, father, brother, son, friend,

Marine, and most of all a phenomenal musician. He was born in

Harlingen Texas and spent most of his time at his Grandparent’s

ranch. At the age of 7 the family moved to Aurora, Illinois and

after high school he enlisted with the Marines. He served his

country and was able to enjoy traveling around the world. In

1979 he was stationed at Camp Pendleton, California and in

1980 Raul was blessed to meet his now and forever wife Maria

Del Carmen Guerra Fuentes. He became a family man with his

daughters Inez, Jessica and son Lil Raul.

Making his life in San Diego, he worked for General Dynamics

building airplanes. Raul loved playing the piano in the band and

making music. He always stayed in school and his favorite class

was acting. He always did what he loved and believed in

learning at every opportunity.

The highlight of his life was spending time with his grandkids

and family. With five grandchildren to keep him busy by

teaching them music, making music, telling them old school

stories, attend their sport events and just hanging out. He loved

being on the phone talking to his sister’s, nephews, and nieces.

Raul is a loving, caring, very extra, funny, dramatic,

enthusiastic, positive and his silly self. He will be deeply missed

and forever in our hearts.
