Antonio P. Medina Jr., 81, of Brownsville, Texas, devoted father, grandfather, brother, great-grandfather, and friend, entered into eternal rest on June 5, 2021, at Valley Regional Medical Center surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Villa Nueva on February 11, 1940, to Antonio Medina and Maria del Refugio P. Medina
He is preceded in death by his parents Antonio Medina and Maria del Refugio P. Medina, his first wife Wynema Medina, second wife Marta Cisneros; and his son Elario Medina.
Left to cherish his memory are his daughters Nancy Medina, Tonia Medina; sons Rolando Cisneros and Antonio Medina III; siblings maria Luisa, Carolina, Elvira, Angelica, Wolfe, and Gualberto Medina; and numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Antonio will be remembered as a family man, widowed 2x over. He raised his children into adults. He was a man of “action”, he demanded it, working to his very last days, selling and trading acquired goods. Always surrounded by friends and family, like a moth to flame, he attracted company. Always the first to strike a conversation with a stranger nearby. Making those new friends feel like old friends and go deep in conversation about the news, weather, or a life event. You are unforgettable and will be missed dearly.
