Abelardo was born in Los Fresnos, Chihuahua Mexico to Enrique Tarango and Esther Sanez Tarango on August 30, 1950. He attended school in Van Horn and later moved to Odessa where he spent most of his adult life. Abelardo was a hard worker and had many friends. He was always ready to lend a helping hand. He was a man of many trades and was never afraid to take on a challenge. Material things were of no value to him. He chose to live a simple and humble life. Telling stories was a favorite past time of his even though his stories didn’t always make sense. During his short stay at the nursing home, he would spend time coloring to pass the time. The pictures he colored were gifted to friends, loved ones, and family. Abelardo accepted Jesus Christ as his lord and savior. He will be greatly missed by family and friends. Those who knew him will understand “He knew his rights!”
