Tribute

ANGEL BALDERAS, age 85 of Geneva passed away peacefully at Accent Care Hospice Center in Naperville, IL, on Saturday, April 30, 2022. Angel was born in 1936 in Odem, Texas. In 1955, Angel and his best friend Benito Chapa decided to move to Illinois searching for a better life. He met his future wife, Mary Rangel who he married on January 19, 1958.  

Angel started his career in Aurora as a barber in the late 60’s and opened up Balderas Barber and Beauty Salon with his wife. In the late 70’s Angel and his wife started their new career in Real Estate and later opened up their own brokerage in Aurora - Balderas Real Estate. 

Angel loved sports and was a great athlete. He was a high school football star, he enjoyed playing softball and baseball, boating and swimming, and was an avid golfer. Later in life, he watched golf from Thursday through Sunday, every week during golf season.  

Ten years ago, Angel received the call we all were waiting for. On a Saturday morning the Loyola Medical Transplant Center called and gave Angel the good news that they had a kidney waiting for him. “Get to the hospital right away, you're getting a working kidney.” they said. Since then, Angel rededicated his life to the Lord, Jesus Christ.  

Angel always prayed for his siblings, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. For the past six months he talked about his life after death. He expressed his excitement to eventually walk those heavenly streets of gold and reunite with his lovely wife, Mary, and his parents.  All four of his children were at his bedside as he departed peacefully.

Angel is survived by his four Children: Hector (Elia); Angel (Sharon); David (Michelle); Eleanor (Phil) Morris; Grandchildren: Adam, Daniel, Tiffany, Billy, Christian (Amber), Joshua (Kayla), Brooke(David) Enrico, Hannah, Eric (Codi) AuCoin; Great grandchildren: Ryan, Natalia, David, Caleb, Finnley, Phoenix, Zen Angel, Jett David. Siblings: Eva, Francis, Mary Grace, Jesse, Oralia, Alice, Janie, Yolanda.

He is preceded in death by his wife Mary, and parents Angel and Geronima and sister Emma.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Loyola Medical Transplant Center, 2160 S 1st Ave, Maywood, IL 60153 or AccentCare Hospice on 2195 W Diehl Rd, Naperville, IL 60563.
