Ronald “Ron” Teneyuque Pacheco, of Saginaw MI, a loving fiancé, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend left this world unexpectedly on January 1, 2024, at age 59. He was born in Lubbock, Texas to the late Gloria Teneyuque Morales and the late Emelio Pacheco Jr. on August 16, 1964. Ronald moved to Saginaw Michigan as an infant where he was raised and became well liked and respected among his peers throughout his upbringing. Ron was a man of great faith in Christ. He was baptized and made his confirmation in the Catholic Church. He graduated from Saginaw High School. He went on to have four loving children (boys) to his legacy. Ron had finally met the love of his life of 13 years, Guadalupe Olivo, whom he nicknamed “Poopsie” along with his doggy “Biggie”. Ron possessed many skilled talents such as carpentry, mechanics, and welding. He was employed at Michigan Sugar Company in Sebewaing, Michigan where he was respected as a highly skilled welder for 18 years and recently recognized for his years of service there. He often brought enough lunch to share with his co-workers and they looked forward to whatever his wife packed. That’s just how generous and kind Ron was. Family was his heart, and the community respected and admired the bond and how tightly knit the Pacheco family was. Ron was known to be a fierce protector of those he loved and cared for. He honored and was dedicated to his Pacheco family bond and never missed an opportunity to tell them how much he loved them. He was hardworking, charismatic, and often the comedian of the family showering his brothers- in-law and sister-in-law with his jokes, love and laughter. Ron was also known to assign nicknames to many in the family. Those nicknames will forever be cherished. When Ron wasn’t working hard at his job, he spent well deserved time enjoying the fruits of his labor by golfing with his brother Joe Felix, he loved time with his brother and always looked forward to their traditional Father’s Day golf outings. Ron also enjoyed taking family camping in his RV, being the grilling master, and building things with his own hands. There was nothing Ron couldn’t construct using his skills and talents. He worked on his yard constantly to make an oasis for family enjoyment and was in the process of making it more modern in the springtime complete with custom neon signs and an outdoor kitchen because Ron just loved the comfort of his own home. He was so excited for spring to come. He was a big Detroit Lions fan and loved hosting family and friends at home when the Detroit Lions played. The strong qualities of Ron’s character were admired often by many. those who really knew him understood Ron was genuine and true to his character ‘til the day he departed to the Kingdom of Heaven. When his mother Gloria was here on earth, she always told him she was so proud of him. He will be so dearly missed by his loving beautiful Pacheco family who loved him so much. They will lovingly continue his #Pachecostrong legacy.
