Julio Cesar Vazquez Bautista


 

 

Julio Cesar Vazquez Bautista, 28, gained his wings on August 25, 2019 in Center, Texas. He was born on September 27, 1990, in San Jose Acateno Puebla, Mexico to Victor Manuel Vazquez Garcia and Maria Magdalena Bautista Mendez.


A visitation will be held from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Thursday, August 29, 2019 at Mangum Funeral Home Chapel. 


He was his parents pride and joy. When other kids his age would be out there getting into trouble or playing around, Julio was working and making his own money. At the age of 18, Julio left his home in Mexico with very little notice as he did not like goodbyes. He then traveled to Nacogdoches, TX. He first worked in several small jobs until he started with 4G Contractors in Logansport, Louisiana on July of 2011 and later moved to Shelby County. He was welder helper and later became a welder. 4G contractors was not just his place of employment, it was a place where he met friends that later became his second family. He was loved by many and always described as an honest, true and loyal friend. A friend whom you knew you could always count on. He was always willing to help anyone, without expecting anything in return. Julio was proof that even in a world like the one we live today; there were still people with a great heart like his. 

 

Julio is survived by his wife; Esther Karina Lopez Morales; parents, Victor Manuel Vazquez Garcia and Maria Magdalena Bautista Mendez; brother, Victor Manuel Vazquez Bautista; sister, Diana Sarai Vazquez Bautista.

Arthur Melvin Waller


 

Arthur Melvin Waller, 67, of Center, Texas, passed away on August 23, 2019 in Nacogdoches, Texas, after a lengthily illness. He was born on October 25, 1951 in Kerrville, Texas to Arthur Pershing Waller and Jimmie Louise Yarborough Waller. 

 

A memorial service will be held Saturday, August 31, 2019 at 10:00 AM at Center Christian Fellowship Church. 

 

Melvin graduated from Center High School with the Class of 1970. He worked for several large companies before establishing Waller Construction, servicing Shelby County and the surrounding areas for 30 years.  Deciding to continue his education, he obtained a teaching certificate in April 2011 and began educating young minds in Construction Technology at Center High School. 

Melvin was dedicated to his family and never hesitated to help out and do whatever was necessary to fill any need.   He was instrumental in teaching work ethics and values to his nephews and nieces. Spending time with family was one of his favorite things to do.  His wit and humor kept us all laughing and waiting to see what was going to happen next.  Melvin had such a generous heart and as a matter of fact one could say that his heart was too big for his body.  His life's motto was "give to others" and that was exactly what he did.  No sacrifice was too great or small. He was a master builder and could build just about anything and enjoyed whatever he did.  He was also loved artwork at which he was equally gifted.  He was a Christian and not even death can steal the memories that he leaves with us all. 

 

Melvin is survived:

 

Brother:

Thomas Waller and wife, Brenda of Center, Texas

 

Sisters: 
Kathy Hagler and husband, Jimmy of Center, Texas
Annie Waller Fisher of Hot Springs, Arkansas

Family workforce, nephews, and nieces:
