Senator Van de Putte Mourns Passing of Her Father

(Austin) — It is with great sadness that the office of Senator Leticia Van de Putte reports the passing of Daniel San Miguel, Jr., the Senator's father. He was 82.

Mr. San Miguel was a proud Army veteran of the Korean War era. He was a native of San Antonio, born in 1931 at what is now Baptist Hospital to Daniel and Velia San Miguel.

Mr. San Miguel passed on the afternoon of Friday, June 21, in an automobile accident near the intersection of Loop 410 and Perrin Beitel in San Antonio. Preliminary police reports indicate that Mr. San Miguel may have suffered a medical episode that contributed to the crash.

The Senator appreciates the news media and public's respect for her family's privacy during this time of mourning.
