Ignacio (Nacho) Acosta Sr.

Acosta Ignacio

Ignacio (Nacho) Acosta Sr. went peacefully into the arms of Jesus on August 31, 2021 holding his wife’s hand. He was born in Riverside, California on July 31, 1926 to Julian Valdivia and Rita DeLeon. He is preceded in death by his parents and siblings. He is survived by his wife, children, many grandchildren, great- and great-great grandchildren.

He married his wife Nora in Kansas City, Missouri in 1948 and together they raised nine children. He worked for Swift & Co. meat packing plant as a scaler for nine years before being transferred to a new plant in Tolleson, Arizona. He lived with his family in Phoenix for 29 years and moved to Goodyear 20 years ago.

After his retirement, he became very active in the Immaculate Heart Church as a volunteer for SVDP, became a member of the Parish Council, and did maintenance for the church when needed. He organized a choir for the 12 o’clock mass, played his guitar and sang, and composed songs for the mass.

He was our “Energizer Bunny”; never stopping, always fixing and inventing. He was an amazing and loving father and husband of 73 years, an inspiring, honest, and giving friend to many.
