Mario P. Cortes, Jr., born February 23, 1945 in San Antonio, TX, went to be with the Lord on October 2, 2010 after a short but hard-fought battle with pancreatic cancer. He is preceded in death by his father Mario P. Cortes, Sr., mother Armandina Castillo and brother Orlando Cortes. He is survived by his beloved wife Sally Cortes, sons Robert Cortes (Santha) and Bryan Cortes (Rochelle), daughters Patricia Cortes and Karie Cortes-Costa (Andy), brothers Eddie (Estella) and Lionel Cortes (Marta), sisters Rosie Montemayor (Tom), Sylvia McGowne, Diana Verastigui (Frank) and Norma Kresta (Ronnie), uncles Arturo and Amador Martinez, grandchildren Vincent, Matthew, Abriella, Bryan Darrin, Judy, Danielle, Delaney and Dylan, great-grandchild Elena Lelani, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins as well as numerous local musicians and a host of beloved friends.

In addition to this, the family would like to offer their special thanks to Odyssey Hospice for their loving care and support in this difficult time.

Mario was a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother. Mario was a past master of Victory Lodge 1160, past district deputy grand master of district 39A and a member of the Alzafar Shrine. Mario was a well renowned trumpet player in San Antonio for the past 43 years and had an enduring passion for music that he demonstrated on a daily basis. Most recently, he had his own mariachi band which he reluctantly gave up due to his fading health. We love you and will miss you and you will live in our hearts forever.

Visitation will begin Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at 3pm with a rosary to be recited at 7pm at Castillo Mission Funeral Home. A funeral service will be held at 11am on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 at Castillo Mission Funeral Home with burial to follow at San Jose Burial Park.
