Fidel Venegas, age 50, of Flatonia, Texas, passed away in the comfort of his home surrounded
by family and friends on Wednesday, May 31, 2023. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2020.
Fidel loved playing soccer on the weekends, back in the day. He was a goal keeper. He was
very handy with tools and loved doing construction and fixing up the house or anything that
needed reconstructing. Fidel liked things to be in order at home. He always made sure the
house was nice and clean. He would do the household chores; sweeping, mopping and dusting,
but always made sure he was blasting music while doing it!
Fidel was always busy and being productive was important to him no matter what he was
working on or doing.
Fidel worked for Cal-Maine in Waelder for many years as a machine operator. He enjoyed
being with his coworkers and working long hours with all of them. Fidel was well known. He
enjoyed being with family and friends, no matter what the occasion was. He was an amazing
and very loving father to his children. He enjoyed watching them play sports and glowed with
pride at all of their accomplishments and was so excited to get to meet his first grandchild.
Anyone that was close friends with Fidel knows that he always repped his last name and made
sure y’all knew it! #PPV
