Michael “Mikie” Vela was born on June 29, 1966 and went to be with His Savior on July 4, 2020. 

Mikie is preceded in death by his niece, Araceli Graciella Hiracheta.

Mikie is survived by his father, Juan Vela, Sr. of Seguin; his mother, Guadalupe M. Hiracheta and husband Jose Hiracheta-Morales of Seguin; 2 sisters; Mary Ann Vela of Seguin, and Amy Hiracheta and beloved nephew Alexander Jai Hiracheta of Seguin; 5 brothers; Edward Vela and wife Beatrice Medina, niece Natalie Vela, and nephew Adrian Luna; Johnny Vela and wife Maggie; nephews Raul Garcia (Rhea) of Minnesota, Denise Beckwith of San Antonio, Johnny Vela (Becky) of New Braunfels, and Gabriel Vela of Seguin; Mark Vela and partner Esther, nieces Emily Talamantez and Jasmine Aguilar of Seguin, and nephews Mark and John Vela of Seguin; Reuben Vela of Seguin, and Carlos Hiracheta (Tammy) of Seguin; as well as his aunts, uncles and numerous cousins and friends. 

Mikie had a smile that lit our hearts and every room he was in and he had a heart that few carry today.   He was never known as one to say, “no,” and will always be remembered for his great cooking.  Although we know our beloved Son, and Brother is in Heaven, he made sure to have left a piece of himself with each of us here.  Till we meet again, rejoice and be glad thy good and faithful servant.

The family of Mikie would like to thank everyone for their prayers and condolences. 

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date and time.
