Arturo Encina Obituary

Arturo B. Encina, 95, entered into the Gates of Heaven on Dec. 27, 2023. He was born in Brownsville, Texas on Nov. 14, 1928 to Vicente D. and Hermina (Bustamante) Encina. Both precede him in death along with his loving wife of 54 years Christina (DelaCruz) Encina; his sons, Johnny “Joe”, Jesse and Francisco “Frank” Encina. Arturo entered into theology at a young age. He became a Minister and a man of God. For 45 years he shared the word of the Lord, instilling his strong faith into his family. He always would say “Without God we have nothing” and “God is watching”. Arturo was the patriarch of five (5) generations which he was very fond of. He enjoyed fishing, cooking, crossword puzzles, doing arts & crafts, building and making different things. Selling and sharing or gifting to family and friends. He also enjoyed watching TV and his favorite were the Matlock series, westerns, and movies. Arturo was a jokester, he could make you laugh, and he had the gift of striking up a conversation with anyone. One of his biggest joys was going to the Flea market every weekend collecting his Knickknack’s, spending time with his family telling stories, sharing his life lessons and his words of wisdom. Arturo is survived by his loving children, Manuel Encina, Hermina Encina, Kathy Martinez, Marta Quintana, Martina (Luis) Gonzalez, Michael (Bertha) Encina and Maria Juanes; 34 grandchildren, 77 great grandchildren; numerous great great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbors and friends who loved and will miss him dearly.
