Bonifacio Madrid, 80, passed into the arms of his Savior on Sunday, October 10, 2021, at 2:24pm, after a sudden and unfortunate battle with Covid that led to lung failure. He was born December 9, 1940, to Bonifacio Lerma Madrid and Consuelo Morales.

Bonifacio was an active member of Lake Pointe Church in Rockwall, TX, where he loved being part of any church event his wife would volunteer them for, and usually (ok it always), involved helping her prepare Mexican Dishes and Aguas Frescas or making tamales and Chocolaté Abuelita caliente during the holidays.

Bonifacio was a kind, hardworking and humble man who loved his wife and family abundantly. He enjoyed watching boxing, loved classic cars and “here and there” would help his family cheer for the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers. He usually was quiet but loved to make his family laugh by saying cute jokes during family gatherings. He would also smile big when he would receive cash as gifts from all his daughters. He would quickly keep it from his wife (couldn’t take any chances) but would later surprise her with something special.

Most recently, he celebrated his 80th birthday, giving his wife, his daughters and all his grandchildren, what would be his last speech on how to live a happy life: “Por cada Familiá que esta aqui hoy representada, la unica manera de conseguir felizidad, es teniendo Amor los unos, a otros, Love each other, is the only way to be happy in this world, there’s no other way, OK, so I love you – Dad “

Boni had a heart of gold, was a true man of God and was an extraordinary husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.

Bonifacio is survived by his wife of 48 years: Elia; daughters: Lupe Rivera, Angie and husband Juan, Consuelo and husband Lance, Glo Madrid, Bonny and husband Elizario, Elia and husband Carlos and Cathy Madrid; eighteen grandchildren; one great-granddaughter; and sisters: Catalina Leyva, Gloria Ponce and Bertha Alicia Gallegos. He was preceeded in death by his father: Bonifacio Lerma Madrid; mother: Consuelo Morales; brothers: Jesus “Chuy” Morales and Francisco Madrid; sister: Josefina Orquiz; and son: Bonisac “Isac” Madrid.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00am, Monday, October 18, 2021, at Reflections at Rest Haven Funeral Home-Rockwall Location. A gathering for family and friends will be held prior to services from 9:00am to 10:00am at The Gathering at Rest Haven Funeral Home. Interment to follow in Rest Haven Memorial Park.
