To Celebrate a Life of Love: Alfonso R. Chua, Jr.

January 27, 1947-April 8, 2021

Alfonso Riparip Chua, Jr., was called by God on April 8, 2021, in San Antonio, TX. He was born on January 27, 1947, in Tarlac, Philippines. He is survived by Myrna Chua, his loving wife of 43 years, and his children, Justin Chua and Courtney Chua Stevens.

Alfonso possessed an incredible work ethic. He worked tirelessly as a professional civil engineer and finished his career as a vice-president at Pape-Dawson Engineers. He also loved to care for his home, where he and his family have lived since 1985. He was an avid mountain bike rider and took long bike rides to the Texas Hill Country on weekends. Alfonso was a devout Catholic and attended weekly mass at St. Francis of Assisi since the church’s founding.

Alfonso possessed a fighting spirit and was above all a devoted husband and father. He will always be remembered for his tenacity, strength, and deeply loving nature.
