Felipe Lara Obituary

Felipe Andrade Lara, a man of God, a beacon of light, and an unwavering pillar of strength, was called home to be with the Lord on October 1, 2023. Felipe was born on July 10, 1948, in the heart of San Felipe Orizatlan, Hidalgo, Mexico, where he cultivated his faith and carved a life of honor, dedication, and love.

Felipe was a rock for his family, a guiding light, a beacon of hope, and an endless source of wisdom and kindness. His love for his beloved wife, Elvira Delgado, was a testament to his commitment and dedication. Their love story was a beautiful tapestry woven with threads of respect, love, and mutual admiration that spanned over half a century. Together, they raised a beautiful family that included their children, Maria Carmen Andrade Delgado, Rosa Nelly Andrade Delgado, Felipe Andrade Delgado, Norma Elena Andrade Delgado, Dayra Elvira Andrade Delgado, and Armando Andrade Delgado. Felipe also had a special bond with his sister, Guadalupe Andrade Lara. His life was further enriched by his twenty-four grandchildren and thirty-six great-grandchildren, each one a testament to his legacy.

Felipe's life was a testament to his faith. As a member of the Iglesia De Dios Torre Fuerte, he embodied the teachings of Christ, living a life of service, kindness, and love. His dedication to his church was evident in his unwavering commitment to his faith and his community. His spirit was infectious, his kindness legendary, and his faith unshakeable.

Felipe was a man who cherished his family above all else. His love for them was boundless, his dedication to them unwavering. He was their hero, the man they looked up to, the man they aspired to be. He lived his life with honor, treating everyone he met with kindness and respect. His spirit was infectious, his kindness legendary, and his faith unshakeable.

In the words of the renowned theologian, John Wesley, "Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can." Felipe lived these words every day, embodying the spirit of kindness, generosity, and selflessness. He was a man who not only spoke of faith but lived it.

Felipe was a beacon of hope, a pillar of strength, and a testament to the power of faith. His legacy will live on in the hearts of those he loved, those he touched, and those he inspired. As we say goodbye to this noble man, we find solace in knowing that he is now in the presence of the Lord, continuing his journey of faith and love.

In the spirit of Felipe Andrade Lara, let us remember to live with kindness, to love with all our hearts, and to keep our faith steadfast. For in the end, it is not how much we have, but how much we have given; not how much we have won, but how much we have done; not how much we have saved, but how much we have served. That was the life of Felipe Andrade Lara, a life well-lived, a life worth celebrating. May his soul rest in God's eternal peace.

2 Timoteo 4:7-8
He peleado la buena batalla, he acabado la carrera, he guardado la fe. Por lo demás, me está guardada la corona de justicia, la cual me dará el Señor, juez justo, en aquel día; y no solo a mí, sino también a todos los que aman su venida.
