Albert Jr. Medrano

Albert Jr. Medrano

March 11, 1952 — June 21, 2018

Albert Jr. Medrano was born in Belton on March 11, 1952. He departed the earth on the evening of June 21, 2018.

He was a man's man, a hard worker, a lover of life, a prankster and a best friend to many. His crooked smile will be forever missed.

Junior was a friend to many, he loved his family; but he cared for all his friends too. He felt alive when they were all surrounding him. He was very tender hearted and loved to joke around with everyone.

He was great to talk to and had many stories to tell, and he usually had an ear in the middle of things and always had a way of making you smile. He loved his car/boat/truck racing. Junior had his daily morning routine with the same ol’cats chatting over coffee or chatting it up with his brothers. He was always down to meet up at local bar and watch people.
