Alfonso Sanchez Dominguez Jr., born on April 8, 1932, in San Antonio, Texas, passed away on July 5, 2024, in Arlington, Texas. Alfonso was a man of great character, dedication, and love for his family and passions.

Alfonso’s early life in San Antonio was filled with joy and dreams. He grew up in a close-knit community and went straight into the military after high school, proudly serving in the Air Force during the Korean War. His service to his country was a source of immense pride for him; he received the Korean Service Medal and the United Nations Service Medal. After his military service, Alfonso attended some college at St. Mary’s before moving to California to pursue his career.

As an Aerospace Engineer, Alfonso’s career was nothing short of remarkable. He worked tirelessly, often putting in overtime to support his family. He was involved in significant projects, including working for Howard Hughes on the Telecommunications satellite, and various types of bombs and jets. He retired from Northrop Grumman where his final project was most notably the B2 Stealth Bomber. Alfonso’s contributions to these projects were a testament to his hard work, intelligence, and dedication to his field.

Alfonso met the love of his life, Ennedina, in Phoenix, Arizona. Together, they built a loving family and a life full of joy and shared passions. Alfonso was known for his love of playing pool, watching football and basketball, and his deep appreciation for country music. He always wore his cowboy boots and had a love for dancing with Ennedina. Alfonso was a man who loved to read and expected his family always to do the right thing.

Even after retirement, Alfonso could not sit still. He continued to volunteer at Catholic churches and helped in any way he could. His love for life extended to his yard, where he enjoyed planting new flowers and watching them grow.

Alfonso was preceded in death by his loving wife Ennedina Dominguez, and son, Alfonso “Boy” Dominguez.

He is survived by his daughters, Monica Lloyd Bowen and husband, Mark, Veronica Rivera, Alma DeMorat and husband, David, Mary Greene and husband, Brian, Cecilia Merritt Lillie and husband, Christopher, Melinda Davis and husband, Stephan; sons, Felix Dominguez and wife, Desiray, Isaac Dominguez and wife, Kathryn; grandchildren, Jeremy, Michael, Ashlyne, Alyssa, Grant, Travis, William, Danielle, Megan, Maria, Andrew, Gabby, Isa, Marek, Danek, Gavin, Skyler, Anthony, Robert, Shelby, Desiree, Erica, Lolly, JJ, Kyle, Broderick, Cecilia, Arryn, Angel, Stephan Jr. (Stephie), Alyssa, Genevieve, Israel; and numerous great-grandchildren.
