In memory of Joe Luna,

Joe Luna Red Cross

     Joe Luna, a dedicated Red Cross volunteer, avid rugby player, decorated Vietnam veteran and beloved grandfather, died April 27, 2014. He was 64 years old.
    Joe was born July 18, 1949. He was a Texas City native and a member of St. Mary of the Miraculous Medal Catholic Church in Texas City.
     Following high school, Joe Luna enlisted in the U.S. Army where he served as a staff sergeant in the 1st Infantry Division during the Vietnam War. He earned the Bronze Star and received a citation by the direction of the U.S. President for acts of heroism.
     Joe returned to Texas City following this distinguished service where he worked at the U.S. Post Office for many years. After retirement, Joe’s good friend Jesse Ponce encouraged him to join the team at Carnes Funeral Home where he worked until he died.
     Joe once remarked at a public memorial service that he was honored to serve people at their time of need. He said he considered it a privilege to help them and their loved ones.
     Joe was also a dedicated fulltime volunteer at the Texas City Red Cross where he served on the disaster recovery team. Joe Luna drove large trucks, handled satellite systems, worked with the computers and had comprehensive knowledge of the disaster recovery team unit operations. He and his wife, Jill, were recognized numerous times for their service to disaster victims.
     Joe Luna was also an enthusiastic sportsman and served as a team player in the Galveston Rugby Football Club. He was also active in the St. Mary’s Men’s Club.
     Joe’s family was always the center of his life. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, “PawPaw”, and friend to all.  Friends and coworkers will remember him as a happy man with a servant’s heart who enjoyed festivities, parades and celebrations with gusto.

The Galveston Rugby Football Club is very sad to announce the death of fellow rugby player Mike Malone. Mike was very involved with the Galveston Rugby team both on and off the field. Mike played hooker for the Galveston rugby team. Mike also sponsored the rugby club with his bar ‘The Granite Room’. Mike was a fantastic man, a great friend of the Galveston Rugby team and will be truly missed.

 

RIP Mike
