Clemente “Tete” Muñoz Jr., 55, of Chandler, Arizona, was called home to be with our Lord and Savior on September 25th, 2021.
Clemente was born August 21st, 1966, in Phoenix, Arizona, to Clemente Sr. and Maria E. (Machado) Muñoz.
A beloved father of Vanessa (Luis) Flores and Clemente “Duncan” Muñoz III.
Loving Tata of Luis Jr., Noah, Ethan, and Kai Flores.
Beloved brother of Jesse Muñoz, Yolanda (Raymond Sr.) Leos, Luly Muñoz, and Daniel (Anna) Muñoz Sr. Further survived by many nieces, nephews, and relatives.
He is preceded in death by his father, Clemente Muñoz Sr.
Clemente was a welder for 28 years and a man of many trades. He was the family’s handy man who enjoyed working on cars and home projects in his spare time.
He loved spending time with his children and grandsons. He spent many hours thinking and researching the most unique gifts and activities to entertain his grandsons. His greatest joy was seeing his grandsons happy and having fun.
Clemente will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a loving father, proud grandfather, loving son, caring uncle, invaluable friend, and the life of the party. Before he walked into a room, his presence was already known. His boisterous laugh, humorous jokes and comical stories will be greatly missed.
“I don’t need very much now,” said the boy. “Just a quiet place to sit and rest. I am very tired”, “Well” said the tree, straightening herself up as much as she could, “Well, an old stump is good for sitting and resting. Come, Boy, sit down and rest.” And the tree was happy.
