Alfonso Hernandez Memorial Fund

Alfonso Hernandez was a loving father, son, and grandfather who unfortunately passed away from complications with COVID-19. He fought very hard in the ICU for three weeks and four days, but God called him to rest on January 2nd. He is survived by his wife, Maria Guadalupe Hernandez, five children, three grandchildren, and two beloved pets.

We're hoping to raise funds to support the medical expenses he incurred while he fought the disease. We would greatly appreciate any and all contributions.

Thank you and God bless!

Obituary:

Alfonso Hernandez, a Packaging Specialist at Enginetech and lifelong resident of Farmers Branch, TX, died from COVID-19 on January 2, 2021 at the age of 62 at Dallas Medical Center in Farmers Branch, TX.

Alfonso is predeceased by his parents Francisco Hernandez Jimenez and Salome Rodriguez Castro; sisters, Maria del Consuelo, Elvira, and Franciso’s twin who passed in the womb; brother, Marcos; and his pets Browny and Bella.

Alfonso is survived by his wife, Maria Guadalupe Hernandez; his children, Alfonso (Ponchin), Juan Carlos, Elizabeth, Maria Del Rosario, and Fatima Rita; his siblings Josefa, Maria de la Luz, Alfredo, Norma Alicia, Francisco, Maribel, Maria de Jesus, Miguel Angel, Elisa; his grandchildren Natalie, Noah, and another one on the way. He is also survived by his beloved pets Chula (whom he loved to call Popo), and Nyla (whom he loved to call Nylito).

Alfonso was born in San Vicente, Coahuila, Mexico on February 12, 1958 to Francisco Hernandez Jimenez and Salome Rodriguez Castro. In search of a better life, he immigrated to Texas at the age of 19. A few years passed and it was then that he met his future wife Lupe, at the company Surface. He pursued her for many years until he conquered her heart. They married on May 28, 1989 in Dallas, Texas. They planted their family roots in Farmers Branch, TX shortly after where they welcomed their first child in 1990. As the years passed, God blessed them with four more children.

Alfonso was a devoted son, father, and grandfather. In his younger years he loved to go out to socialize and play baseball. He enjoyed the simple things in life such as visiting family, grilling fajitas, and watching his favorite sports teams: Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers. He was a man who never failed to provide to his late parents despite the long distance. He was a giver: a man who would do anything to help others, especially his family. Despite his kindness, my dad made it a point to never let anyone take advantage of him or those around him.

Alfonso nació en San Vicente, Coahuila, México el 12 de febrero de 1958, hijo de Francisco Hernández Jiménez y Salomé Rodríguez Castro. En busca de una vida mejor, emigró a Texas a la edad de 19 años. Pasaron unos años y fue entonces cuando conoció a su futura esposa Lupe, en su trabajo Surface. La persiguió durante cuatro años hasta que conquistó su corazón. Se casaron el 28 de mayo de 1989 en Dallas, Texas. Plantaron sus raíces familiares en Farmers Branch, TX poco después, donde dieron la bienvenida a su primer hijo en 1990. A medida que pasaban los años, Dios los bendijo con cuatro hijos más.

Alfonso era un hijo devoto, padre y abuelo. En sus años más jóvenes le encantaba salir a socializar y jugar béisbol. Disfrutaba de las cosas sencillas de la vida, como visitar a la familia, asar a la parrilla fajitas y ver a sus equipos deportivos favoritos: los Dallas Cowboys y Texas Rangers. Fue un hombre que nunca dejó de proveer a sus padres fallecidos a pesar de la larga distancia. Era un que daba: un hombre que haría cualquier cosa por ayudar a los demás, especialmente a su familia. A pesar de su bondad, mi padre nunca dejo que nadie se aprovechara de él o de los que lo rodean.
