To Celebrate a Life of Love: Toribio Julio Saucedo

June 1, 1945-July 31, 2019

Mr. Toribio J. Saucedo, age 74, passed away peacefully on July 31, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.

Toribio was born in Laredo, TX on June 1, 1945. He graduated from St. Augustine Parochial School in 1963. He proceeded to attend the University of Texas at Austin and graduated cum laude with a degree in Accounting in 1967. He began his career with Peat Marwick & Co in Houston, Texas. He postponed his career to fulfill his military duty with the U.S. Navy, including 2 tours in Vietnam. In 1977, Toribio returned to his hometown of Laredo and spent the next 31 years with The Laredo National Bank, where he ultimately served as the bank’s Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President. He retired in 2008 shortly after a successful merger with BBVA Compass. In 2014, Toribio moved to San Antonio to be closer to his grandchildren.

Toribio deeply valued the many friendships he made throughout his life. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, working in the yard and his morning routine of solving crossword puzzles while having his coffee.

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Patricia Saucedo; his children, Rebecca (Christopher) Dynes and Eduardo T. (Megan) Saucedo; his brother, Ricardo Saucedo; his step-children, Santiago, Kristine and Charles; his grandchildren, Emily, Claire, Evelyn, Anna, Lauren and Katie; and his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Hector Balladares and Gloria Farias. He also leaves behind his sisters-in-law, Rosalinda (Fred) Graves, Sylvia (Dr. Carlos) Vergara, Oralia (Dr. Guillermo) Salinas, Olivia (Dr. Arthur) Santos and Veronica Farias; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, a large extended family and close friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Librado and Aurora Saucedo; his late wife, Diana Varela Saucedo, and her parents, Carlos and Oralia Varela, and his sister-in-law, Laura Varela.

A Mass to celebrate his life will be held in San Antonio on Thursday, August 8th at 2 p.m. at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 4201 De Zavala Rd., San Antonio, TX 78249.
