Saddened to hear about the passing of Judge Ruben Guerrero. This #TBT pic is from 2004 at the Texas Dem Convention. In 1992, he was appointed by Gov. Ann Richards to serve as Judge of the 263rd Criminal District Court. Later, he was part of the 2008 Democratic sweep, elected to the 174th Criminal District Court where he served two terms. He was a frequent visitor to our Kingwood Dems group. #QEPD
We lost my sweet father, Judge Ruben Guerrero, today. He fought hard and overcame much for us to have a few more months with him. Today he went to be with the Lord and with my mama, who he has missed every day since she passed in November. I thank the Lord we were able to be there with him.
Daddy accomplished much in his life, as a Vietnam veteran, a successful attorney, regional director of the Small Business Administration and a district court judge. He loved the law, and his time on the bench was unquestionably the highlight of his career in public service. He met many of his best friends through his work, the kind who stuck beyond the time he carried influence in the courthouse. He presided over his court with compassion and took joy in mentoring young attorneys. Quick with a joke, eager to pick up the lunch tab and never afraid to speak his mind, I learned so much from him.
He was justifiably proud of his political accomplishments, but he was most proud of his kids and grandkids. Whenever I would venture into Houston on assignment or stop by to meet Dad for lunch, I always met Houston reporters, lawyers or courthouse employees who already knew so much about me because they knew my dad. He bragged about me and my sister all the time.
When he became a grandfather, he would drive 45 minutes one way to our house, just to hold Mia for five minutes. He was in awe of her.
Mom and Dad gave us a great life, full of meaningful work and funny stories we will hold dear.
Back in April, when had recovered from Covid but was struggling with a subsequent infection doctors thought would kill him, the hospital let us in to see him. Daddy had rebounded overnight, and when we walked in, he said “Hi Mija!” As Ryan and I left that day, his recovery far from a certainty, Dad said “Bye, honey. Don’t forget about me.”
I told him then, and I told him again today, Daddy, you are unforgettable.
Details on Covid-sensitive services will follow, and when this virus is past us, we will have the big party he deserves, with lots of tacos and lots of laughs.
I’m sad to hear about the passing of Judge Ruben Guerrero. The first year that I started practicing law, Judge Guerrero was the Judge of the 263rd Criminal District Court. He later served the citizens of Harris County as Judge of the 174th Criminal District Court before retiring from the bench.
He graduated from the University of Houston and later attended Thurgood Marshall School of Law. Here’s a picture of Judge Guerrero, Ephraim Tito Del Pozo and me at one of the University of Houston tailgates. He was a proud Coog.
Rest In Peace, Judge Guerrero.
“I don’t think he’s gonna answer your questions, Mr. DeGuerin.”
To state District Judge Ruben Guerrero who declined to hold me in contempt despite me refusing to answer Dick DeGuerin after he ambushed me by calling me to the witness stand for questions about pretrial publicity: Rest In Peace.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
