Joe L. Hernandez Obituary
NOVEMBER 24, 2018
Joe L. Hernandez, Attorney, passed away on November 24, 2018. Joe attended Tulane University and UT Austin before serving in the Army. He earned his law degree at St. Mary's University in 1963 and then served the City of San Antonio as an Assistant City Attorney and Chief Prosecutor before entering private practice for the next 45 years. He continued his public service as a State Representative in the Texas Legislature from 1973-1985, representing District 57-J on the City's westside for six consecutive sessions, and then briefly served as the Bexar County Democratic Chairman. Joe will be missed by all who knew and loved him, but by none more so than Clelia Bautista Hernandez, who selflessly cared for him until physically unable to do so; his dutiful son and law partner, Tony, and his loving daughters, Desiree, Geri, Deirdre, and Angelita, all who adored their Daddy and followed in his professional footsteps. His manners and grace will forever be their standard by which all men are measured. Visitation will begin on Friday, November 30, at 5:00 P.M. with a Rosary to be recited at 6:00 P.M. at the Angelus Chapel. Visitation will resume on Saturday, December 1, at 12 noon with a Funeral Service to be held at 1:00 P.M. at the Angelus Chapel. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Citizens United for Rehabilitation of Errants, http://www.curenational.org/
