Filed under: Life,Obituaries |

Tomas Flores Lira, 96 of Cedar Hill, Texas was born September 22, 1921 in Coahuila, Mexico. He transitioned to his heavenly home on November 21, 2017. Tomas passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family.

He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Olivia; their nine children and their spouses; 14 grandchildren, three great grandchildren; and one future great grandchild.

Tomas was a real salt of the earth man and his love of the land was his passion. He never met a stranger and his witty sense of humor had his home full of laughter. His strong will and work ethic strengthened the LIRA family bond. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
