Adolfo Avilés-Medina We celebrate the life of Honorable Adolfo Avilés-Medina, age 91, our beloved father, husband, grandfather, uncle, and friend who passed away on January 28, 2021. He was born on January 3, 1930 in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico (PR) son of deceased parents Petronila Medina-Vega and Eladio Avilés-Aulet. He is survived by his lovely wife Hilda Reyes de Avilés of 65 years of marriage, his daughter Dr. Nilka Avilés-Reyes, Celia Saenz, his son Adolfo Avilés-Reyes, wife Evelyn Avilés-Pacheco, grandson Adolfo Avilés III, wife Alyssa Avilés, grandson Adolfo Andrés Avilés and girlfriend Noy Inthisone. He is also survived by his sister Amparo Avilés, many brothers and sisters in laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, colleagues, and many friends. Adolfo served in the U.S. Army from 1951-1953 and was station in Germany during the Korean War. He was a graduate of the University of Puerto Rico and worked as a servant leader in the educational field for 30 years and in politics for over 25 years. He taught English, History, and Science to middle and high school students in Barceloneta, Florida, Arecibo, and Guaynabo, PR. Later he was the principal of primary and secondary schools in Hormigueros and Guaynabo, PR. During the last years of his career, he worked in the Puerto Rico Department of Education as General Supervisor and as the Director of the School-Community Relations Program. He held the positions of Municipal Council and City Council Manager over that body for more than 20 years. He was appointed Vice-Mayor of the Municipality of Guaynabo for three years. In 1996 he moved to San Antonio, Texas to reunite with his immediate family. He was very passionate about his work in advocacy and public policy on behalf of parents, students, and the community, especially the most marginalized. His charisma and his great sense of humor are attributes that distinguished him. He was very active in La Gloria de Dios church as an elder where his son is a pastor. All who knew him witnessed his love for the land, for planting and harvesting. We will be missed dearly, but the memories and love we share will always remain in our hearts. We will meet with “Papi” one day when the Lord calls us to his house.
