Moises A. Rivera


01/16/1921 - 01/04/2014 Obituary
Moises A. Rivera was born on January 16, 1921 to Calixtro and Francisca Rivera in Topeka, Kansas and passed away in Bakersfield California on January 4, 2014. Moises is survived by his daughters, Dr. Rebecca Rivera (Joshua Garza), Olivia Delgadillo (Victor), Patricia Rivera (Juan Johansen), and Francisca Gonzalez; sons Jose Rivera (Yvonne), and Victor Rivera; 20 grandchildren; and 17 great grandchildren. Moises was preceded in death by his loving wife and soul mate Angelina.
We all said our goodbyes, shared stories, and sang our favorite church hymns as he took his last breathe. Moises was blessed to be among his loving family when he went to be with our Lord and Savior. We thank God for the time we had with this wonderful man. We are comforted in knowing he is with Mom and finally resting in peace. We are sure that heaven's newest angel will join Mom and continue to watch over our family.
Special thanks to the entire Emergency Room staff especially Dr. Cheryl Reeder, Jonathan Hernandez, RN; Brice Hagen, RN; the ICU staff Kelli Boyer,RN; Jenni Kripner RT, and the physicians that cared for our father; Dr. Sam Ratnayake, Dr. Nick Hansa, and Dr. A Ashraf. We appreciate your compassion, professionalism, and the dignified way you cared for our beloved father. You made a difference in the quality of his life. Thank you for allowing my father to experience his end of life journey with dignity.
Forever grateful, The Rivera Children
