Mark Perales

January 3, 1973 — April 9, 2024

Mark Christopher Perales, 51, husband, father, son, Popo and friend to many went to be with 

the Lord on April 9, 2024. 

  

Mark was born to Adela Perales on January 3, 1973, in Rotan, Texas. He married Christiana 

Govea on February 24, 2023. Mark had many hobbies; he loved to sing karaoke and when it 

came to him not knowing the lyrics he would improvise without missing a beat. Mark enjoyed 

listening to all kinds of genres of music, but country and Tejano were his go to. The stockyards 

or better yet “My Backyard”, as Mark would say, and the North Side community were greatly 

loved by Mark. He loved sports, especially the Dallas Cowboys football team followed by the 

Texas Rangers, but the Texas Longhorns were his all-time team. Mark never met a stranger, he 

always made friends wherever he went, filled with lots of joy, love, compassion and a positive 

outlook. He was always a very selfless person that would help anywhere and anyone that he 

saw was in need. Mark always put his family first before himself. Mark was the type of person 

that when things went downhill for him, he would come back stronger than before no matter the 

situation. Mainly, Mark loved and fiercely protected his family, kids and grandkids. 

  

Mark was preceded in death by his grandparents, John and Lenor Perales; his uncles, Alfred 

Perales, Albert Perales and Rudy Perales; his aunts, Minie Perales, Emily Perales and Mary 

Frances Garcia; his grandson, Christopher John Paul. 

  

Those left behind to honor and cherish his memory are his wife, Christiana Perales; his children 

Mark Christopher Perales, Christi Perales, Jacolby Perales, Gilbert Arredondo III, Mariah 

Arredondo, David Patino, Nicholas Patino, Celine Burciaga; his grandchildren Ava Perales, 

Emilia Christiana Burciaga Patino, Nova Renee Arredondo, Adela Perales; along with extended 

family members and a host of friends.
