R.B. "Sonny" Trevino, Jr.

August 14, 1926 - March 22, 2020

Rufino Balboa Trevino, Jr., 93 was called home to his place in heaven on Sunday, March 22, 2020. He was born August 14, 1926, in Corpus Christi, Texas, to Rufino and Rosa Balboa Trevino. R.B. Commonly known as “Sonny” to his friends and family, lived in Corpus Christi most of his life until moving to Beaumont to be closer to his son and family. 

Starting in 1944, R.B. served in World War II for the United States Army and continued his service in the United States Marine Corp where he served as a military police officer. After his tour of duty, R.B., returned to Corpus Christi and began working as a detective with the Corpus Christi Police Department. In the early 1960’s R.B. began his long career in retail at J.C. Penney. His dedicated clients relied on him for all of their special occasions and he was blessed to call all of his customers friends. R.B. retired from J.C. Penney after fifty years.

On December 30, 1959, R.B. married Elizabeth Cazares and were happily married for fifty-one years until her death in 2009. R.B. was the proud father of one son, Paul Trevino (Kelli Hayes Trevino); three grandchildren, James Jeffrey Trevino (Emily), Mary-Caroline Trevino, and Anne Kathryn Trevino; and one great-grandchild, Elizabeth James Trevino, all of Beaumont, Texas. 

A memorial service in celebration of R.B.’s life will be determined at a later date in Corpus Christi, Texas. 

The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to all of the physicians, nurses, and staff at Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital and Altus Hospice for their excellent care and compassion they provided to R.B. over the last several weeks. May God bless and keep R.B. in His peace and love always.

It is sad to hear of my grandfather passing. It's even harder to deal with when people are purposely neglected or left out, especially at a time when we lose a loved one. My name is Richard Trevino, I am the son of Charles Trevino, who was Rufino Trevino's first born son with his previous wife, Delia. I will never understand why family, especially us Hispanics cant seem to just let things be the way they should and find peace in offering love to one another at a time like this. I used to go see my grandfather, there at his home on Meadowbrook and when I needed him he was there to give me advice in not making the same mistakes he made in his younger years. I will forever be in debted to him for the talks he shared with me and the love he showed myself and my first born daughter, Micaela. It pains me to see that my dad, Charles was left out of this obituary and it pains me even more so to not be able to see my grandfather one last time before he's laid to rest. To whom it may concern, my grandfather had another son, and other grandchildren and even great grandchildren to carry the Trevino name. I don't mean any disrespect, it hurts and this is the time when family is supposed to come together to cope with the loss and move forward. Respectfully, Richard A Trevino
