Ismael Daniel Moreno of Ft. Stockton passed away peacefully on December 6, 2020, in Ft. Stockton at the age of 84. Ismail was born in Ft. Stockton on July 21, 1936 to Theodoro Moreno and Eulalia Navarette. Ismail was raised by his uncle Theodoro and Aunt Julia Navarette from Marfa for 10 years. Ismael was also known as “dad”, “Uncle Pete” and “Pistol Pete”. Ismael started working at age 9 shining shoes. He was the youngest butcher in Texas and was the Market Manager for Foodway and then Assistant Market Manager for Safeway. He owned and operated a boot and shoe repair shop. He worked for Firestone, Department of Public Safety, Department of Homeland Security and the local electric company. Ismael took great joy being involved with his church, St. Joseph Catholic Church, as an altar boy, member of the Knights of Columbus and Eucharistic Minister. Ismael was die-hard Dallas Cowboy fan and his favorite saying was “there is nothing better than the Dallas Cowboys, Chevrolet and apple pie”. He had been known to kneel in front of the TV during a game when the cowboys were not doing so well and would give anyone not owning a Chevrolet a hard time. He had a knack for telling jokes. Once he got started, he couldn’t stop, and his audience couldn’t stop laughing. Ismael always told his family that his priority was God and his immediate family. He would do anything for his wife and children and would try to protect them from harm or mistreatment. He worked part-time for many years so his children would have the opportunity to get a better education. He was a loving husband and father.Mr. Moreno is survived by Ismael Moreno Jr. (BB); daughter, Elva Moreno; daughter Loretta (Lorie) and husband Hector Bustamante and two grandsons.He is preceded in death by his wife Frances Moreno; parents, Theodoro and Eulalia Moreno; sisters Bessie Parisi, Albeza Villalba, Criselda, Bertha Ruiz, Belsora Melcher, and one cousin to whom Ismael called brother, Ruben Navarette.
