Roy G. Cano, age 64, went peacefully surrounded by his family to be with our Loving Lord on December 28th 2023 in Kenedy, Texas after a valiant battle with an aggressive cancer.  He was born in Lubbock, Texas on September 16, 1959 to the late Jose and Lena Garza Cano.  

Roy married Audulia (Lula) Munoz on August 25th 1979 and made their home in Kenedy, Texas where they lived a very simple life.  Although Roy and Lula did not have children of their own, they both had a special place in their hearts for children.  They helped raise three beautiful girls, Ruby, Anna, and Daniela Jimenez.  These young ladies along with their children made their lives complete by bringing them many wonderful memories throughout the years.  As Roy battled his cancer, they were by his side to support and encourage him. 

Those left behind to cherish Roy’s memory are his devoted wife of 44 years, Lula Cano, his sisters, Elma (the late Juan) Cortez of Kenedy, Nancy (Gerald) Mooney of Corpus Christi, and Dora (Rudy) Saenz of Kenedy.  He also leaves behind the three young ladies he helped raise, Ruby, Anna and Daniela along with their children and numerous nieces and nephews whom he loved and that will miss him dearly.
