Donato Zapata Cisneros, 97, of Fort Worth went to be with the Lord on November 7, 2023 in Fort Worth, Texas.
Donato was born to Encarnacion Cisneros and Beatriz Zamora Zapata on August 7, 1926 in Pilares, Texas. He loved the
outdoors so much that every opportunity he had, he was doing something outside. He was talented with his hands, he devoted plenty of time being a handyman, doing yardwork, construction and later in life he owned a bar on the city's North Side.
Another past time he enjoyed was baseball, the Texas Rangers, whether watching them in person or on television. He will be greatly missed and always in the family's hearts.
Donato was preceded in death by his parents; his loving wife AdeIla Herrera; his stepchildren Paul, Patricia, and Eddie Chazarreta; his grandchildren Houfemia Arredondo, Joe Ortiz, Carmen Jean, Adella P. and Robert Chazarreta Sr. and his two great grandchildren.
Those left to honor and celebrate his memory are his stepdaughter Rose Linda Chazarreta of Fort Worth; his stepson Santos Chazarreta Jr. and wife Deborah of Fort Worth; his 19 grandchildren, 57 great grandchildren, and 38 great great grandchildren along with numerous extended family members and a host of friends.
