Fred Cruz Resendez Jr. Obituary
March 28, 1950 - May 24, 2016 Fred C. Resendez Jr. passed away peacefully in Covina, CA on May 24, 2016. He was born in Sun Valley, CA, son to Fred C. Resendez Sr. and Ramona (Diaz) Resendez. A prominent Brown Berets figure, Fred led hundreds of Abraham Lincoln High students during the 1968 East LA walkouts to enhance education for Mexican-Americans. He will be missed for his generous heart, hardworking nature, and great sense of humor. Fred loved family, friends, the Dodgers, new eateries, corny shirts, CA scratchers, and classic westerns. He is survived by his eight children, five grandchildren, three siblings, and the numerous nurses that he charmed. He is at home with the Lord now.
