Lorenzo A. Hernandez, of San Angelo, TX passed away on 06-29-2020 at the age of 71 years old. After months of failing health, he passed away peacefully in the comfort of his home in San Angelo.
Lorenzo was born on August 10, 1948, in Navasota, TX to Apolonio & Dolores Hernandez.
Mr. Lorenzo was a mechanic by trade & knew what was wrong just by hearing the sound the vehicle was making. He worked at the Ford House in Floydada & Lockney TX. His nickname was “Ford” to his co-workers and “Lenchito” to his family. He loved his music and taught himself how to play the accordion just for fun. He loved to play pool, cards, and dominoes with his family, and was always ready to go eat or go see to a movie. His favorite pastime was at the slot machines or the casino.
He was a good Father to his kids, a loving & proud Grandpa to his grandchildren, a caring Brother to his siblings. Dad was known to stop to help people who were stranded on the side of the road and get them back on the road. He never spoke a harsh word about anyone. Pierce Holt once told Lonnie “Your Dad is like walking with God” and his Sister Rosa has always thought he was a saint. He was highly thought of among everyone who knew him. It’s been said him & Tia Angela won a dance contest.
Lorenzo was a strong, proud and good but yet stubborn & a stern man. He is loved and will be greatly missed by many!
He is preceded in death by parents, Apolonio and Dolores Hernandez; infant granddaughter, Crystal Ann Jimenez; brother, Norberto Hernandez; and sisters, Bertha Flores & Angelita Ramirez.
Survived to carry his legacy are his children, Lorenzo Hernandez Jr. and spouse Sandra Hernandez, Lisa H. Beltran and husband Emilio of San Angelo, TX, Lonnie Joe Hernandez of Lubbock, TX and Larry Hernandez of Kennedale, TX; 8 Grandchildren, Aaron Mark Aguirre, Lonnie Cain Hernandez, Michael Lorenzo Hernandez, Joseph Greg Aguirre, David Ray Hernandez, Sable Nicole Hernandez, Madelyn Elise Hernandez and Sophia Gabrielle Hernandez; mother of his children, Lucy Amador and her family as they have always thought of him as their Brother & Uncle; Brothers, Thomas Hernandez (Virginia) and Santos (Rosa) Hernandez of Floydada, TX; Sisters, Rosa Medders (Edwin) of San Antonio, TX and Luz Castillo of San Angelo, TX along with many nephews and nieces.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude for the loving care, help & support Tia Rosa & Tia Luz provided. Thank you is not enough for all they did. A special thank you to Kindred Hospice nurses & staff for keeping Dad comfortable.
A memorial service will be held in Floydada, TX at a later date.
