Oscar Nuncio Moreno, 85, of Kerrville, TX, passed away peacefully on May 23, 2023, in Kerrville. Born in Nava, Mexico to Onofre and Elvira Moreno on October 24, 1937. He was married to Alma G. Moreno on April 1, 1986, in Kerrville.
Oscar was a Kendall County Sheriff's Department Deputy, retiring in 2010. He also retired from Camp Stanley Army Facility in San Antonio. He enlisted in the U. S. Army and was honorably discharged in 1957.
Oscar was a Texas Hill Country legend to those who knew and loved him. He was an avid fisherman, hunter, outdoorsman, and small rancher, spending many years attending to his own piece of the Texas Hill Country. He was an amazing carpenter, stone layer, and overall hardworking man. There wasn't anything he couldn't build or repair. When he shook your hand, one always noticed his incredible grip strength. Oscar's true passion in life was law enforcement. He was proud to serve the people of Kendall County and later served the County Judge as a bailiff.
Oscar was a serious man but had his own sense of humor. His family and those that knew him will remember many conversations and all the stories. He loved to talk about his childhood, the Army and working at Camp Stanley. When Oscar wasn't attending to the needs of others or his animals, he could be found watching his favorite Westerns or playing the lottery. He loved his scratch-off tickets!
Oscar was preceded in death by his parents, Onofre and Elvira Moreno; sister, Feliz Page; brothers, Claudio, Onofre Jr. and Hector Moreno.
He is survived by his wife, Alma Moreno; sisters, Aurora Moreno, Linda Lemn and Yolanda Pacheco; children, Mary Baker, Diana Moreno, Norma Moreno, Victor Moreno, Sylvia Harrison and Melinda Wind; 12 grandchildren; and 8 great-grandchildren.
Visitation will be held from 4-6 PM, with Rosary following at 6 PM, on Monday, May 29, 2023, at Grimes Funeral Chapels.
Mass will be held at 10 AM, Tuesday, May 30, 2023, at Notre Dame Catholic Church, with Father Rafal Duda as celebrant. Interment will follow at Garden of Memories Cemetery.
The family wishes to extend their sincere thanks to the Kerrville Veterans Administration Medical Center for all their loving care and kindness.

Your passing hurts but at the same time, it makes me happy to know you are in a better place. I will never forget the times we spent together, the memories we shared, and moments you smiled. Catching you smile was rare but when it happened, it was true happiness. I appreciate the love you showed our family and always blessing us with your time when we visited. You watched me, Amber, and Micah grow up. Hearing you say how proud you were of us meant everything to me. You had a positive influence in each of our lives. I will miss our talks about life and your stories that always seemed to have a lesson behind it, but most of all, I will miss your presence. I will make sure your great granddaughter and grandsons know how you lived and who you will always be to me.
Until we meet again,
Love your grandson (Bryan)

So sad to hear of Oscar’s passing. I worked many years at the courthouse in Boerne as the district court reporter. Oscar was always so kind and was a wonderful bailiff. He will be greatly missed.

You epitomized what being a Texan was all about. I met you in 1986 when your wife's daughter, Sylvia and I started dating. I found you to be a mountain of a man. You intimidated me. You loved the Texas Hill Country and because of that, I couldn't wait to come for our annual two weeks visit. You taught me how to hunt, skin a deer, harvest livestock, and so many things. You didn’t stay mad at me too long when I shot your favorite hen instead of the roosters you set me out to kill. We had so many family BBQs with friends and family. You and I dressed our own hog, mutton and made homemade chicharron’s while manning the beer and BBQ. I appreciate the times you took me on patrols when you were a deputy. I will always remember, together we would try and drink all the beer in Texas. Of course, that was back in the day. You seldom showed emotions, but one could tell you were always excited every time we pulled into to the driveway. You adored our children, and our children revered you. Thank you for being my kid’s grandfather. Your passing hurts! Heaven is a better place. I will see you again.
I will always love you!
Your son in-law, Paul
