True to his nature, early riser that he was, Rene Navarrette passed to an eternal state in the early morning hours of October 1, 2020 to fulfill the job that he had long rehearsed while on this Earth— to rock with the angels and sing his heart out in the presence of Jesus.
Rene Navarrette made his debut on January 12, 1974 to his beloved parents, Rosendo and Simona Navarrette. His first friend and love was born six years later, his baby brother and only sibling, Ross. Rene was a “Proud Soul” when it came to being a big brother and took his role extremely seriously. He loved his brother deeply and wanted only the best for him always, even in his last days. Though he only had one brother, he had a very special kinship with his cousins, Chris and Levon Barragan and Moatze Hadad who he also saw as bonus little brothers. They spent their time laughing, joking, and calling each other funny nicknames. They called Rene names such as “Reneboy Cowboy,” “Chirokee” and “Renesito.” Rene lived to spend time with his family. He understood the value of time well spent with those he loved and would often forgo hanging with his friends as a teen so that he could spend time with his cousins in West Texas. A true romantic who always dreamed of marrying a girl he could spoil, his dream came true when he met and married the love of his life, Amber Conwell Navarrette in an autumn wedding at the Ft. Worth Stockyards. Rene was a doting husband who adored his “honey.” He would often surprise Amber with flowers, take her out dancing at the Ft. Worth Stockyards, plan special outings to celebrate her birthday and their wedding anniversary. He helped with the cooking and cleaning, but most of all, enjoyed taking care of Amber and showing her love in all the ways he possibly could. His proudest moment arrived when he became a father to his one and only son, Colt Waylon Navarrette. Colt was Rene’s world. He absolutely adored his son and it is only fitting that his final FB post was addressed to Colt, “You're without a doubt the greatest gift God has blessed us with! We Love You!!” Because he worked out of town during the week, Rene would video chat Colt every day— helping him with homework, reading books to him, and watching him play with his wrestling figures. He was a larger than life figure in Colt’s life.
All who knew him will remember Rene’s sunny disposition, positive vibe, hilarious personality, and most of all, his kind heart. He could make anyone smile and make a new friend feel like they were old buddies. He was known to be an incredible listening ear and a very loyal friend. His favorite pastimes included, listening to Texas country, heavy metal, and many other genres of music, fishing, enjoying the beauty of the West Texas sunsets and its starry skies, and drinking cold beer. He was an incredibly talented artist who could draw beautifully and who could write in all sorts of scripts, even some he created. He often drew characters for Colt to color. His loved ones will always remember him for his famously all-enveloping bear hugs that would make even the deepest sorrows melt away, and those he loved were blessed that he chose to share them so generously. Rene was a good soul, many would say a gentle giant, and we would all be well served by spreading as much love as he did while on this Earth. We rest realizing that he is in the arms of Jesus and knowing that, "in the end, somewhere in the fields of heather, the proud souls laugh and they love together."
He is survived by his wife Amber Navarrette, his son Colt Navarrette, his parents Rosendo and Simona Navarrette, his brother Ross Navarrette, his niece Lybertee Navarrette, his nephew Ryland Navarrette, many aunts, uncles, and cousins all of whom adored him and will miss him terribly.
He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Rosando Navarrette and Delphina Carrasco, his maternal grandparents Monce and Raul Tarin, his uncle Ramon Tarin, his aunt Mary Janks, and his cousins, John Tarin, Joseph Tarin, and Patsy Tarin.
