Abraham “Abe” and Alma Razick of Temecula, formerly of Chicago, passed away in the early hours on July 8 in a tragic plane crash. 

Abraham was born on August 7, 1976, to Esther Velez and was raised by Mario Pacheco. Alma was born on September 11, 1971, to Margarito and Elsa Maria Beltran. Abe and Alma were both born into large and loving families then went on to have their own loving and dear family. They were married for 25 years and leave behind seven children: Sam, Daisy, Jasmine, Violet, Hasan, Mario, and Abraham.

Abe and Alma were devoted parents – they lived for their kids. They put their heart and soul into raising them and making sure they had everything they wanted and needed. There was nothing they would not do for them.

Abe was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend. He also was a decorated U.S. Marine, having served four years. He quickly attained the rank of E5 sergeant and earned two Naval Achievement Medals, at 19 and 20, and a Certificate of Commendation. Abe will be greatly missed and leaves an amazing legacy of countless people whose lives he impacted. To know Abe was to love him. He was one-of-a-kind; one of the kindest, most generous souls you could ever meet. He thrived on helping, mentoring, and inspiring people – that’s what gave him joy. He had a heart of gold.

Alma was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Alma was a great lover of music and showed her love to others by cooking for them. Alma was so giving and always opened her home to family and friends. She always made sure you had everything you needed, and if you didn’t, she would get it for you. She was never selfish. As long as she had her big cup of coffee while sitting out watching the sunrise and hot air balloons, she was at peace. Alma was the type of person who would send you a gift or card on your birthday – beautifully wrapped and on time, of course – she never missed a special occasion. She thought of everything, was always on time and never missed a beat. Alma was an amazing mom who truly did it all. She could care for the kids all day on her own, then have dinner on the table for her family after a long day. She was who others around her aspired to be as a wife and mom.

Abe and Alma were inseparable. Abe always talked about unconditional love. Alma and Abe were the perfect example of this. Abe always called them the “power couple.” They always worked together as a team. Alma would care for the kids while Abe drove long hours to his dealerships and neither ever complained. They were happy to help each other in any way possible to support eachother. They spent their last moments together and wouldn’t have been able to live happily without the other. Together, they accomplished everything in life that they had set out to achieve since the day they met. Abe had that passion and hunger for greatness, and Alma was his right hand, with him every step of the way, motivating him and keeping him headstrong. Without each other, they would not have succeeded the way they did.

Abe and Alma were very generous donors, both having played a vital role not just in the lives of Abe’s employees but also in the livelihood of many people. They donated to many charities, giving people hope and opportunity. Abraham and Alma truly paid it forward. Always a giver, Abe also donated a kidney to his mother, who enjoyed a longer and better quality of life for 20 more years and he never let anyone forget it. Abe used to say she had a piece of him with her and Alma joked he was her favorite because he gave her the gift of life. Now they’re all reunited together in heaven.

Along with his contributions and donations, Abe was also known for his many achievements, such as being named Automotive News’ 40 under 40 and Automotive News’ notable military veteran. His dealerships include Fullerton Ford Orange County, Hyundai of Yuma, and Kia of Yuma. Most recently, Abe was chosen to be on the Hyundai Hope on Wheels board.

Abe was a problem solver. If you told him a problem or an issue, before you were finished talking, he would already start thinking of a way or plan to help you remedy that problem and come out on top. He had this way of talking and thinking that made you want to be better and do better. You couldn’t get a way without a motivational speech or quote from him. He was always aiming to motivate others. It was inspiring. He had the heart of a lion.

In one of Abe’s last conversations with his cousin about a week before his passing, he talked about how happy he was, how full his life was, that he had accomplished all his goals and then some. He said if he died tomorrow or next week, he would die having achieved all of his dreams. Something everyone will remember about them is they truly lived. They truly lived their best life, and they didn’t do anything mediocre. That’s something everyone can learn from Abe and Alma. They lived every day as it was their last; they left no page unturned. If Abe or Alma wanted to do something, they did it. They didn’t waste time or procrastinate. They were go-getters, competitive people. They were perfectly made for the other – destined for greatness, TOGETHER.

Abe and Alma’s love and legacy will live on in the hearts of all those who knew them. Their smiles, love, and passion for life are imprinted in every single person they knew. If anyone feels down or unsure of where to go in life, close your eyes and picture Abe’s smile and words of encouragement. Imagine him telling you this (with motivational background music):

“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful. You have to bless to be blessed. Be a lion, not a sheep. Don’t be a victim. And never accept mediocrity. Hoorah.”

Abe and Alma’s last weeks were spent in total bliss with their kids in Puerto Rico. Every day spent there was special; their children will remember it forever. They were blessed to have spent all that time en la isla de encanto with their children. We know Abe and Alma are lovingly held in the arms of Jesus and happily reunited with their family. Although we miss them terribly, we know we will be reunited with them again.

Abraham is survived by his father, four siblings, seven children, and three grandchildren (with one on the way). He is the son of the late Esther Velez. Alma is survived by her parents, four siblings, seven children, and three grandchildren (with one on the way).

There will be a service at Casey & Rios Funeral Home on Tuesday, July 18, from 3 p.m. — 9 p.m. for those who would like to say their final goodbyes and celebrate their beautiful lives and legacy they left behind.
