Tony was born on May 22, 1956 in Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico to Blasa Carrillo Mascorro and Antonio Mascorro and passed away on November 4, 2020 in Lubbock, TX. Tony loved his grandchildren and was loved by his grandchildren. They affectionately called him Nampa, Brampa, Grandpa Goober and Grandfather. He loved to go shooting outdoors and made sure that anyone wanting to learn how to shoot a firearm knew the proper mechanics, rules and discipline necessary to be skilled and safe. He loved attending gun shows and car shows. He enjoyed listening to the oldies and always had a smile on his face. Tony was very service-oriented, always helping anyone in need, as he had a heart of gold. All who knew him loved and respected him for the great man he was. Never one to complain about anything, we considered him our "Superman". Anyone who knew Tony, knew of his love for his precious Dallas Cowboys as he proudly wore their blue and silver colors. Tony worked at the Lea County Detention Center in Lovington, NM for fourteen years as a transport officer and was known as T1. He was very proud to work for the Detention Center and made it his priority to ensure that the safety and security of his co-workers was first and foremost. He was preceded in death by: his parents: Blasa Carrillo Mascorro and Antonio Mascorro Gaytan: his adoptive grandparents: Matias and Maria Carrillo; and step-son: Salvador Aguirre Jr. He leaves behind his wife, Genevieve (Beva) G. Carrillo of Lovington, NM; three grandsons: Remi, Tein and Salvador Aguirre III; two children: Tony Carrillo and wife Stephanie, two grandchildren: Colt William and Paisley Carrillo; and daughter: Melissa Ruiz and husband Andres: his step-children: Criselda and husband Jon Mardo and grandchildren: Hannah, Jonathan Jr, Isaac, Caeli, Lachoneus, Spencer and Christopher Mardo; Amanda Aguirre and grandchildren: Lorren and Bibianna Morales; his stepmother: Rosa Isela Mascorro Alvarado and four sisters: Maria C DeAnda, Magdalena and husband Jesus Mendoza, Maria Isabel and husband Carlos Montes, Rosa Isela and Mascorro Alvarado: one brother: Antonio and wife Yvette Mascorro Alvarado.
