October 5, 2020, 52, Seven Springs
Seven Springs-Pablo Flores Venegas, 52, received his heavenly reward on Monday, September October 5, 2020. Pablo was born May 19, 1968 in Durango, Mexico to the late Pedro and Oliva Flores. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his siblings, Acension Flores, Francisco Flores, and Lola Flores.
Pablo’s life can be described in one word: miraculous. Following an accident that left him in a coma for more than 7 months, his physicians said there was no hope, yet Pablo survived. When told he would never walk again, he fought and worked to regain his strength, learning to walk again. Nearly two decades later, Pablo was severely burned and told he may not survive. Pablo fought again, surviving despite another hopeless situation. Through Pablo’s determination and the mighty prayers of his mother, Pablo became a walking miracle.
With great bravery and fierce determination, Pablo continued to overcome every obstacle placed in his path. He never allowed his disabilities to get in the way of living life. Pablo was very giving, strong, and intelligent. He was willing to help others, no matter their circumstances, and he saw everyone through the eyes of compassion.
His greatest feat of bravery was sacrificing his own health and safety for his brother, Francisco. During Francisco’s battle with COVID-19, Pablo cared for him and made sure he received the help he needed. Romans 5:7 says, “Scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.” Pablo selflessly laid down his life for his brother, being his greatest sacrifice.
A service to honor and remember Pablo’s life will be held Sunday, October 11, 2020, at 11 a.m. at Iglesia Aliento de Vida, Seven Springs, with Minister Alejandro Flores presiding. Interment will follow in the Flores Cemetery.
Pablo is survived by his beloved wife, Blanca Estela Pineda Gomez, and siblings, Ramon Flores, Manuela Flores, Armando Flores, Gonzalo Flores, Martin Flores, Ubaldo Flores, Edith Flores, and Maria Del Flores.
The Flores family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday evening, October 10, 2020, at Iglesia Aliento de Vida. Online condolences may be expressed at www.rousefh.com. Arrangements are entrusted to Rouse Funeral Home, La Grange.
