This biography chronicles countless accomplishments of his wife of 43 years, Dolores Fuentes Theodore, and attempts to unravel the mysteries clouding her Mexican family upon their early 20th century arrival in Texas. As a second-generation Mexican American who only spoke Spanish when she entered kindergarten, Dolores lived a life marked by major assimilations into different cultures. Her intense desire and self-discipline to achieve influenced many. Her assimilation into the Hellenic culture and Eastern Orthodoxy provided the focus for her philanthropy. Dolores’ final two years marked an exemplary struggle against non-smoking-related lung cancer, complicated by stroke-induced verbal aphasia—never complaining, but reveling in the love of her grown daughters and their families. Those last years became symbolic of the way she lived her entire life—a compact upbeat moment in time of how she affected people positively throughout her life.
