Joe Cuellar Knight of the Month – October 2021

Joe Cuellar

Maybe it’s time to restart the Holy Spirit softball team (remember that outfit, Patrick Stepniewski?). We’d have a potential ringer in Joe. After graduating from Oliver Wendell Holmes High in San Antonio in 1983, he went on to two-year Howard College in Big Spring on a baseball scholarship to play third base and finished up playing for the University of the Incarnate Word back in his hometown. Joe and wife Teresa, married 36 years, came up to our area when he was transferred by Office Depot. He’s now an operations manager for Pegasus Appliance Repair in Dallas. The Cuellars live in Cedar Hill and have one child and one grandchild; Bianca Camacho-Terrazas and her husband, Nick, have a 2-month-old daughter, Ila Brooke, and live in Duncanville. Joe joined the council in March 2005 at the request of Jim Kowalski, who successfully cornered him at the parish’s fall festival. Joe says he loves to be involved and is naturally outgoing. “I’ve never met a stranger,” he said.
