Adolfo Medina Guel “Loffie”

MILWAUKEE – Passed away on November 15th, 2020 at the age of 71.

Loffie is preceded in death by his parents, Jose and Maria Guel, his siblings Paul, Lupe, Julio, Joe, and Annie, and his grandson Ian.

He is survived by his cherished girlfriend Nancy, as well as his children Adolfo A. Guel, Ernesto L. (Michelle) Guel, Jason M. Guel, and Christabel (Hector Jr.) Rodriguez. Also survived by grandchildren Jason Jr., Jalessa, Hector, Davian, Quinn, Aryia, and great-grandchildren Bentley, and Javion.

Loffie was born in Seguin, Texas, a small town outside of San Antonio on August 8, 1949. In 1966, he moved to Milwaukee, getting a job at Navistar (International Harvester) in Waukesha as a crane operator, where he worked for 30 years and retired in 1995. Loffie enjoyed the simple things in life and liked to spend his free time going on road trips up north to the “hideout” to fish and look at the stars. He loved spending time with his family, especially his children and grandchildren, and spent many days going on trips to see his brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews in Texas. Loffie was known as a favorite uncle to many of his nieces and nephews. He was known to collect any number of treasures to work on at home. He would come through the door with grills, lawn mowers, vacuums, and fishing poles to fix up “for a rainy day” and enjoyed working on these projects. He enjoyed doing burn outs with his Texas Ranger (El Camino) and his red Corvette, and he spent many sunny days fishing at Moose Lake, his favorite spot. He will be deeply missed at family gatherings, as he was always the first person at the grill, waiting to get the first chicken leg, even if it wasn’t fully cooked. With a Big Red in one hand and Tabasco sauce in the other, Loffie was often seen with a big plate of catfish and tortillas. He loved his cowboy movies, Tejano music, and spending time in casinos. He insisted that he had the special recipes to always hit the jackpots. He was a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers. Loffie was kind, loving, dedicated, and never turned down a friend or family member, always doing favors and giving a helping hand.

His big personality and love of family and life will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Visitation will be held Wednesday, November 25th 2020 starting at 11am, followed by a service at 2pm.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or are feeling under the weather, please stay home and extend you condolences via card or phone call.

    You were the glue of laughter that held us together, never a dull moment when we were all together, Family first, always so giving, a gambler, a negotiator, a father, a Tio, a son, a brother, a teacher, a friend and a partner.
    There was no topic that you did not have a thought or opinion on.. you could make friends anywhere you traveled.
    Thank you for the memories, the love, your contagious laughter and love for Texas
    Your Legacy lives on…..

    Love you more!
