Humberto Leopoldo Acevedo Jr. (known to many as Ace) of Fort Worth, TX, age 73, passed away Tuesday, November 15th after suffering a heart attack. He was born on March 12, 1949, the son of the late Humberto and Otila (Pierce) Acevedo.

Humberto is survived by his wife, Donna; daughters Laura (Jonathan) of Atlanta, GA., and Adriana (Justin) of Wimberly, TX., sons Humberto (Erica) and Christopher (Tiffany) of McAllen, TX.; grandchildren Bella and Lexi Hunt; Avery, Addison, and Alyssa Tedrick; Aidan and Aubrey Acevedo; and CJ and Diego Acevedo; sister Patricia (Peter) and nephew Peter Jr.

Everyone who knew Beto felt his big heart and giving nature. His smile was infectious and reached across the miles. As soon as he met you, you were a friend, and he had your six. He will be especially missed by his four children whom he enjoyed so many activities with such as fishing, hunting, watching football, grilling, and just catching up on the phone. Beto had nine grandchildren whom he spent countless hours swing- and stroller-pushing, playing games, eating ice cream, playing lifeguard as well as being their biggest supporter. He will forever be their hero and guardian angel. He was a fan of football, especially the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Longhorns. His idea of a great time was having his whole family together by the grill, with a cold beer and country music in the background. He showed tremendous pride and respect for his country, his time in the Navy, and his 29 years as a US Customs and Border Protection Officer. Saying he will be missed is an understatement. He will forever live on within our hearts and our memories.

        1. Juan and Melinda,
          I was Humberto’s classmate at St Joesph’s. Humberto was a good friend, one of those we later wish we had stayed in contact with as we went on through life, such as ourselves! We always had discussions about rifles and other firearms since his dad was in that business.
          May he rest in piece and our condoences to the family.
          Alvaro and Arabela Lopez!

        Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Acevedo family, Beto “Ace” as I remember him was always carrying a smile on him with a caring heart for people. Ace, may you rest in peace.
        Keep Smiling!
        How about them Cowboys!!!

    A great cousin that I looked up to as a big brother. Our mothers were sisters. So when we visited Laredo it was always straight to grandmas house, the to Tia Tilas house to spend time with the Acevedo’s. My aunt and uncle were great role models for Beto and Patsy. Beto’s skills he learned from his Dad, whom he worked with all his life. I don’t remember if I ever told Beto that our family tree through our Mother’s are two US Presidents, Franklin Pierce, and George W. Bush. George’s mother is a Pierce. We love you Beto, and you will be missed.

  4. My deepest condolences to the Acevedo family. I have known Beto since we were in high school. Everything I have read about him in this feed is so very true. He was such a unique, caring and loving individual. I loved to hear him laugh. He laughed with such gusto and yet it seemed as if he always tried to muffle it. Beto’s smile was one of a kind. Rest in peace, my friend and may perpetual light shine upon you.

  5. To the Acevedo family,
    Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of Mr; Humberto Acevedo, Ace, as we respectfully called him was a true gentleman, colleague, and friend to all at CBP. It was a pleasure to know him and work with him.
    Ace, Rest In Peace my friend.

  6. My deepest condolences to the Acevedo family during this difficult time.

  7. Beto was someone that always had a smile at the ready and made you feel happy just to see him. I am grateful to the Acevedo family for sharing him with the rest of the world, as his spirit was truly a gift. My heart is with you all this weekend and beyond.

  8. Ace,
    You will always be remembered for your greatness. Thank you for your guidance and wise words. It was an honor and privilege knowing and sharing with you . May you rest in peace hermano.

  9. I worked with Ace as a fellow CBP officer for 20 years. We used to talk about life philosophy. His wisdom was simple but true. Ace was a good man. Rest in peace.

    Beto, (Ace) as he was known by, you will forever be in our hearts. I remember you teaching me the ways of driving a car and how to be aware of other drivers. Always making sure we were careful. That will forever be embedded in my thoughts whenever I’m on the road. May you Rest In Peace and will see you again one day♥️
    My deepest condolences to the Acevedo family.

    Dear Donna, Patricia and family, so very sorry to hear of your great loss.
    My beloved cousin was such a loving gentle soul with an infectious boisterous laugh. He’s had it since childhood!
    I was fortunate to grow up with wonderful cousins (Beto and Patsy) that ingrained strong family values and so many great memories.
    Like, Monopoly and Butter Pecan ice cream sleep over nights with the Acevedos.
    Beto, may your beautiful family find strength in each other during this time as you shine upon them from above.
    We love you and God bless.
    Sylvia, Randy and family

    We are so sorry for your loss. Beto was a great man with a good heart and a love for the Lord. No doubt he is in Jesus’ arms as I write this. We regret we were not in town to give our condolences in person. Below is a lovely poem to help remember Beto.
    Love, Queta, Bobby, Lini, Bela, Mateo.

    I am always with you.
    When I am gone, release me, let me go.
    I have so many things to see and do,
    You mustn’t tie yourself to me with too many tears,
    But be thankful we had so many good years.

    I gave you my love, and you can only guess
    How much you’ve given me in happiness.
    I thank you for the love that you have shown,
    But now it is time I traveled on alone.
    So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must
    Then let your grief be comforted, comforted by trust
    That it is only for a while that we must part,
    So treasure the memories within your heart.

    I won’t be far away for life goes on.
    And if you need me, call and I will come.
    Though you can’t see or touch me, I will always be near
    And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear All my love around you, soft and clear
    And then, when you come this way alone,
    I’ll greet you with a smile and a “Welcome Home”

  14. Humberto was one of our classmates at St. Joseph’s Academy from 1962 through 1965. 4 1/2 years ago by chance, myself and another classmates ran into him at the international bridge. Though he never made it to one of our monthly breakfasts these last several years, we considered him as one of our classmates. All of our class of ’68 classmates have been informed of his untimely passing. Our condolences to his family.
