Catarino Garcia Hernandez
April 30, 1934 - December 23, 2015
Catarino Garcia Hernandez, 81 has left us to join our family in heaven on the 23th of December, 2015. Catarino was born April 30th, 1934 in Linares Mexico, to Genaro Hernandez and Eliosa Garcia. In 1955 married (se-robo) the love of his life Dora Alicia Agado. In 1969 moved to "el Norte" the north with his comadre' Julio Barrientes, where he worked in the fields, Simplot, etc. to provide for his family.
Our dad loved to visit his compadres and being the life of the crowd with his jokes and charm. He was a very caring man who would help anyone and give them his shirt on his back. He always had big dreams and was very strong willed. Oh, and let's not forget some of the little things he loved - Milky Way, scratch tickets, recycling cans, and his KFC.
His past 25 years were a bonus to us all, after suffering a severe stroke.
He is preceded in death by his sons, Alejandro and baby Abel Hernandez; his parents, Genaro and Eloisa Hernandez; and siblings, Romualdo, Carlota, Jose (Pepe), Jose - Fedil, Rosenda, Fidel, Fiélix, and Nemorita.
He is survived by his wife, Dora; his children, Arnold (Terri), Alonzo (Laura), Meli (Balta), Aleida (Vince), Fonze, Elia (Claudio), Catarino Jr., Elodia (Saul), Abel (Laura), Abelardo, Freddy (Christine), and Emily; 41 grandchildren; and 23 great grandchildren.
Our family would like to give a special "thank you" to our second family at the Kindred Canyon West Nursing Home - You are amazing - Thank You. Words cannot begin to explain the loss we have endured with the passing of our beloved Catarino, his presence, his memories, and our love for him will forever be instilled in our hearts.
