Jose Llanes Obituary

Jose Raul “Roy” Llanes, 88, passed away on September 17, 2023, in College Station, Texas. He was born on September 25, 1934, in Raymondville, Texas to Marcelino and Hermelinda Llanes.  His early years were shaped by his experiences growing up in Raymondville, a man of remarkable character, known for his strong work ethic, and boundless love for the outdoors and sea.

Roy was a hardworking man, but he also knew how to relax and have a good time. He loved fishing and feeding the crowd with some homecooked barbecue. The combination of good food and cherished company made these gatherings truly memorable.

Roy always enjoyed time with his family and friends, but not nearly as much as he loved, fishing, trips to Washington or the Cascades, and going to dances. Those would be days filled with your next best memory if you were around!

In Heaven Roy will meet again his parents, Hermelinda Campos Llanes and Marcelino Llanes; his first wife, Norma (Esperiqueta) Llanes, and siblings, Adan, George (Llanes), Beatrice Llanes (Stephens), Eva Llanes (Garcia), and Delia Llanes Infante.

His legacy will live on through his beloved wife, Martha Joanne (Gowan) Llanes, his children, Roy Llanes, Jr (Tish), Richard Llanes (Cathy), Anna Llanes Perez, Renee Llanes Cain (Charlie), Ruth (Smith) Galindo, Chris Smith (Laurie), Caroline Anderson (Craig), his grandchildren, Monique Sabatino (Mario), Jesi Llanes (Doug), Christopher Llanes (Bridgette), Jonathan Llanes, Junior Perez (Karyn), Daniel Perez (Stephanie), Nicole Perez (Joseph), Michael Perez, Hayden Cain, Jason Galindo (Emily), Paige Galindo, Christopher Smith, Brady Anderson, and Ross Anderson, and his 20 great-grandchildren, and his many-many farms animals.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2023, from 9 A.M. until 1 P.M followed by a chapel service at 1 P.M. at Good Shepherd Funeral Home. An interment will follow to his final place of rest at Raymondville Memorial Cemetery.

The Llanes family would like to give a special acknowledgment to USDA – ARS.
