Severo R. Cabral, age 91 of Denver, passed away January 5th, 2018 at his home. Severo was born November 6th, 1926 at Las Carreras, Jalisco, Mexico to Prisciliano Cabral and Victoria Robles. Severo had very little formal schooling but was a great cowboy and talented farmer. A few years after marrying the love of his life, Felipa Barajas in November of 1953, he moved to Mexico City where he started a new profession as steel worker. In 1979, he decided to chase the American Dream fulltime and moved to the U.S., where he found greater financial stability for his family in the construction industry. Severo's dedication and love for his family was only surpassed by his love to God and the Virgin Mary. Severo maintained a beautiful green yard, lovely flowers, and vegetable garden. His house was the point of reunion for all his children, relatives, and friends. Severo enjoyed music and dancing to classic Mexican regional music. Within a 19-year period, he fathered 9 children with 8 survivors. Severo was preceded in death by his parents and a son, Jose Manuel Cabral. Survivors include his wife, Felipa Barajas of Denver, and the following 4 sons and 4 daughters: Rosavelia Cabral, Adalberta (Leandro) Madera Cabral, Herminio (Maria del Rosario) Cabral, Olivia (Felipe) Mercado Cabral, Martin (Citlali) Cabral, Jaime Cabral, Adelaida (Sergio) Carrillo Cabral, Juan Manuel (Dora) Cabral; 29 grandchildren; 32 great grandchildren; and 6 siblings: Consuelo Madera Cabral, Cuca Madera Cabral, Martha Madera Cabral, Eusebia Cosio Cabral, Filiberto Cabral, and Jose Cabral; and a host of extended family and friends.
