Adolfo Smith Carrasco Jr. “Bill” was born April 21, 1938 in Kent Texas and was the son of Adolfo and Eva Carrasco. He married Elfreida Faye Hibbs on December 30, 1955 and was married to her for 54 years until her death August 7, 2009.

He is survived by 1 sister, Elsie Rios; 4 children, Terri husband David as well as their children, Darrick, Cristal and Mallery; Deanne and her children, Bruce, Brian, Michael and Melissa; Richard and his son Joshua; Rebecca and her children, Luke and Lena, as well as Caren’s children, Ron, Daniel, Stephanie and BJ.  In addition, he has 20 great grandchildren, 6 great-great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews whom he was very proud of and loved very deeply.

He later married Ivalee Brown and they were married for 10 years until her death on April 4, 2021.   Along with Iva came 2 sons, Rick wife Betty, Scott wife Melissa, 1 daughter Brandi,  4 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his daughter Caren Cowfer, Mother Eva Carrasco, Father Adolfo Carrasco, 2 sisters Lupe and husband Raymond Lara and Ruby husband Manuel Salcido  father-in-law Oley and wife Beatrice Hibbs, sister-in-law Brenda and husband Jimmy Copeland and brother-in-law Ronnie Hibbs.

Bill enlisted in the Air Force at the age of 17 and was stationed at Lackland AFB in San Antonio. There he did basic training, later transferring to Bergstrom AFB in Austin as an administrative specialist where he met Elfreida through mutual friends.  They dated for 3 months before getting married.  Shortly after getting married, they were stationed in Nebraska , where their first child Caren was born.  Shortly after Caren’s birth they moved back to Austin where they made it their home and had 4 more children.  After finishing his time with the Air Force in 1962, he became a glazier for many years, even owning his own business in Bastrop, TX, called Town and Country Glass. Finally,  before retiring, he went on to work as a traffic counting Supervisor for TxDOT.

He was baptized on his 25th birthday and was a faithful Christian for the remainder of his life.   Bill served first as a Deacon, later becoming an Elder at the Church of Christ for many years.  He loved working with the youth and remained friends with them throughout his life.  He was a great example and mentor to all, making friends with everyone he encountered.  One of his loves in life was to laugh and make others around him laugh.

Bill frequently told everyone he knew how he had been blessed with a good life and a great family. He said that he was ready to go when the good Lord was ready to take him home.  He chose not do any treatments at his stage in life, as he had loved ones waiting for him on the other side.

A special thank you to Saint David's Hospice and the staff and doctors at the VA.
