Liandio Jose Rios, III, 54, passed away on Sunday, September 5, 2021. He was born April 13, 1967, in Lubbock, Texas to Liandio J. Rios, Jr. and Consuelo (Romo) Rios. Liandio was a well-known Dallas Cowboy and Red Raider fan. He loved rock and heavy metal music. His favorite band was Judas Priest. Liandio loved Mopar cars, for he had a passion for racing and was a dedicated truck driver.
Nothing stood in Liandio’s way when it came to his goals for he was a person that never gave up and kept pushing, a real “goal getter”. His favorite phrase was “Go Big or Go Home!” He was loved by many and well known in society…city to city…across the nation. Liandio was a stand-up man with a heart of gold, a heart of a lion, and was a true warrior of God. He was a very giving and loving person. When he walked in the room it was all eyes on him. Everyone noticed his presence. He will be missed dearly, especially by the ones he truly loved the most, and the ones who truly loved him the most.
His biggest passion of all was the love for his family and being a proud grandpa to his grandson Cheerios. His name and legacy meant everything to him for it was his notoriety. He always said “your name, loyalty, and love are all you got in this world. It is something you take to your grave that no one can take. Never wish bad on anyone, even your worst enemy. Never prey on them but pray for them.” He will be missed dearly.
Liandio is survived by his siblings, Rudy Morin, Alex Rios, Nicole Rios, and Jamaica Rios; children, Liandrio Rios, IV, China Rios, Jacob Rios; his only grandchild, Gabriel Lee Chaves, III; and his best friend, Norma J. Castillo. He was preceded in death by his parents.
