Francisco Anibal Moreno

Joe Denoyer - April 1, 2024 4:34 pm

Francisco Anibal Moreno, 35, passed away on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Wichita, Kansas.
Born on January 21, 1989, in Chihuahua, Mexico, Francisco was the beloved son and firstborn son of Francisco and Rosario (Gutierrez) Moreno. He graduated from Stanton County High School and later attended Seward County Community College, where he developed a passion for auto-mechanics.
On November 5, 2010, Francisco married the love of his life, Isabel Martinez, in Liberal. The enduring love and commitment they shared during their union will continue even after his passing, proving the remarkable strength of their bond.
Francisco worked as a foreman for Panhandle Oil Field Services, where his dedication and commitment to his work earned him the respect of his colleagues and superiors. He was a great leader, capable of inspiring those around him.
Francisco was a man of many talents and passions, and he lived his life to the fullest. He found joy in simple things like watching a baseball or soccer game with his family, or fishing at the lake. He enjoyed going to the casino and loved the thrill of a good game.
But Francisco’s true passion was his family. He loved nothing more than spending time with his wife and kids, playing games, traveling, and creating memories they would cherish forever. He was known for his skill in grilling, and he took great pride in preparing meals for his loved ones. He also loved listening to music at all times.
Francisco was not only a loving husband and father but also a great mentor to his family and friends. He was always there to support them through tough times, offering advice and a listening ear. His kindness and generosity knew no bounds, and he would go out of his way to help anyone in need.
Francisco was a kind and hardworking man who will be deeply missed by all who knew him. His warm smile and gentle nature touched the lives of many, and his untimely departure has left a void in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to have known him. Although Francisco is no longer with us, his memory lives on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
Francisco is survived by his wife, Isabel Moreno of Liberal, Kansas; his son, Francisco Eden Moreno; his daughter, Zulema Moreno; his father, Francisco Moreno Mendoza, and his brothers, Alexis Moreno and his wife, Yazmin of Liberal, Kansas, and Aron Moreno and his wife Lizett of Johnson, Kansas.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Rosario Moreno and his daughter, Yadira Moreno.
