Family and friends gathered to celebrate his life at 2:00 PM, Thursday, June 9, 2022, at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Andrews, Texas. Visitation was onTuesday, June 7, 2022, from 5-8 PM at McNett Funeral Home. A Rosary was held on Wednesday at 7 PM at McNett Funeral Home Chapel.

Amador was born on April 30, 1942, in Camp Wood, Texas to Gregorio Revelez and Santos “Garza”. He married his Baby Doll Maria Elena “Quiroz” January 27, 1962, in Midland, TX., and they have spent the last 60 years together.

Amador apprenticed with an upholstery business in Midland becoming a master upholsterer. In 1973 moved his family to Andrews, TX starting his own business A&E Seat Covers an eponym for Amador and Elena symbolizing their life long bond. Customers and friends knew when ever you saw his 1976 “Old Blue” Ford truck in front of his shop he was open. A place for business and a mecca for his many friends to visit.

Amador loved God and Family. He was noted for judgement and insight thinking before he spoke holding his head up with honor; for he believed in his own integrity, talented, witty and clever in speech and thought. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, reading and watching westerns, and listening to music. We will never fear his loss because he will always remain here in our hearts.

Preceded in death by his parents, Gregorio and Santos Revelez, and brother, Manuel Revelez.

Amador is survived by his wife, Elena Revelez of Andrews, Texas, son, Jaime Revelez of Midland, Texas, daughters, Lisa Revelez Thomas of Andrews, Texas, and Marcy Revelez of Atlanta, Georgia, brothers, Greg Revelez of Andrews, Texas, and Robert Revelez of San Angelo, Texas, sisters, Enedina Torres and husband Albert of Andrews, Texas, and Juanita Downey, and husband Kevin of San Angelo, Texas, grandchildren, Justin Thomas of Andrews, Texas, and Dereck Thomas of Andrews, Texas.

The family would like to express their gratitude towards the staff at Andrews Home Hospice for their care of Amador.
