George Hernandez Sr. born on May 13, 1930 and passed away on May 17, 2013. He had a 30-year career at Lee Way Motor Freight before retiring. George went on to spend 13 years as a School Bus Driver for the E.P.I.S.D Like many people who crossed paths with George, the children were moved by his kind personality and engaging smile, quickly becoming his biggest fans. George was proud to be the first person they would see each day and they were greeted with treats on holidays that he and his wife had prepared the night before. He grudgingly leaves behind his beautiful wife of 65 years, Maria Luisa Hernandez, who never left his side. George is preceded in death by his son George Hernandez Jr. and is survived by his daughter Maria Elena Perez and his son Alfred Hernandez and Daughter-in-Law Marina Hernandez. He was a proud grandfather to Anthony Perez, Lisa & Raul Gonzalez, Christine & Dr. Jaime R. Gomez, George & Mireya Hernandez III, Yvonne & Sonny Feria and Nina Loray Hernandez.
