Beloved Amarillo Restaurant Owner Has Passed Away, Memorial Service Open to All
If you've been to El Patron's Tex Mex restaurant, then you may have seen the slogan assuring customers that "You're the Boss".
That's the sign of someone who believes in quality customer service. And he was. Unfortunately, Ruben Gonzalez, the owner of El Patron, passed away on January 16 after a battle with cancer.
The family made the announcement on the Facebook page for El Patron on Saturday. There will be a viewing starting at 6pm at the Schooler funeral home and a memorial service will be held at 11am on Thursday at St. Mary's Catholic Church.
The memorial service is open to any and all who wish to attend.
There has been an outpouring of supportive comments and memories left on the social media pages by current and former customers of El Patron. All take care to underscore the impression Ruben's commitment to customer service left on them.
From all of us at 96.9 KissFM, Mix 94.1, 101.9 The Bull, 98.7 The Bomb, and 940 NewsTalk, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the Gonzalez family on their loss. Our thoughts and support are with you in this time.
