IN THE CARE OF

Boice Funeral Home

Ernesto S. Saucedo, a beloved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend passed away at the age of seventy-nine, on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. Ernesto was born in Puerta de Aguilar, Dr. Arroyo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico to Vicente Saucedo and Augustina Sauceda. Ernesto had four brothers and two sisters. He is preceded in death by his father, mother, brother, Ascension “Chon” Saucedo and wife Juana Villanueva Saucedo. Ernesto immigrated to the US as a teenager and set root in Madera, CA. He dedicated his life to both his family and work, his life’s greatest treasures and accomplishments. Ernesto, at a youthful age, befriended Gerald and Dorothy Nelson who provided him the opportunity to do what he loved most for 58 years, which was work outside in the sun and meticulously grow, harvest, and tend to the land that he loved. His love of all things green extended to his personal life where he spent countless days and hours caring for his garden and plants. Ernesto was a teacher of the “Jardin”. He was always willing to educate anyone who wanted to learn about growing and caring for plants. Ernesto enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He would often be found sitting outside in his yard, with his granddaughter Jocelyn and his dogs, Felix, Chimi, and Changa or waiting for his son David, to bring him a newspaper and donuts. Ernesto was Catholic and believed that God always had a plan. He enjoyed watching baseball and soccer. His favorite MLB team was the Cincinnati Reds, The Big Red Machine. He enjoyed trips to San Francisco and Los Angeles to watch baseball and enjoy the ballpark food. He had a wonderful singing voice and never hesitated to sing to his wife and children even if he did not know the words to a song, he would make them up. He adored his grandchildren. He was a friend to all. Ernesto is survived by his siblings, Heriberto Saucedo, Isaac Saucedo, Maria Diaz, Aristeo Saucedo, and Olga Garcia, his children Maria Rodriguez and husband Jose, Jose Saucedo and wife Linda, Vicente Saucedo, Alberto Saucedo, David Saucedo and wife Christina, Carmen Saucedo, Linda Carolina Ortega and husband Peter, Catarino Sauceda and wife Dionicia; twelve grandchildren, Andrew Manley, Celina Saucedo, Leslie Gomez, Nathan Bell, Nicholas Saucedo, Jocelyn Saucedo, Tyra Lutz, Katarina Saucedo, Dayton Saucedo, Chasen Farris, Isabella Saucedo, and Emma Saucedo; four great-grandchildren, Layla Bell, Jaxton Bell, Anna Bell and Elaina Gomez. Ernesto is loved deeply and will be truly missed. Thank you God for his beautiful life. “Love you Dad/Papa/Pops/Daddy/Grandpa/Friend” – “Okie Dokie”, “Dale Gas”.
