Fidel S Hernandez

March 23, 1944June 4, 2018

Fidel Hernandez, 74, of Evans, died Monday, June 4 peacefully at his home with his wife and children by his side.

He was born March 23, 1944 to Justo and Leonor (Sanchez) Hernandez in Lampasas, Texas. Mr. Hernandez grew up and attended schools in Greeley. In 1976 he met and married his wife, Regina Degi. “Grandpa Feef” was an avid fisherman who loved the Denver Broncos and the Colorado Rockies. He was actively involved in all of his children and grandchildren’s activities – from T-Ball to Cub Scouts (and even served as a cubmaster). His favorite past-time was anything involving his kids, a fishing pond, and an old radio. He is fondly remembered as the one who “helped me catch my first fish”, who always had time to throw a ball, take a walk, draw with some sidewalk chalk, or tell a good story about “Rag Town”. His lifelong friends and teammates, the Gabmucs, will remember 25+ years of softball and friendship.

Survivors are his wife of 43 years, Regina Hernandez; Sons Elias (Dorothy) Hernandez of Evans, Brett (Deanna) Baldavia) of Denver, Zachariah (Laura) Hernandez of Greeley, and Zebulon (Katie Ann) Hernandez of Bountiful, UT; Daughters Adella Hernandez of Denver, Chantelle Hernandez of Denver, and Jazmin Hernandez of Loveland; Sisters, Cata Rodriguez and Clara Garza of Texas; Brother Luciano Gonzales of California; Fifteen Grandchildren and Fifteen great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, adopted grandchildren, and cherished friends.

He is preceded in death by one son, Sandy Hernandez; his parents, Justo and Leonor Hernandez; Sisters, Lupe Gonzales, Luisa Perez, and Catalina Alvarado; Brothers, Nestor (Ernie) Hernandez, Hinio (Gino) Hernandez, Aurelio Gonzales, Esidoro Gonzales, and Marcelano Gonzales.

A celebration of life will be held on Monday, June 11 at 10:30 a.m. at SummitView Church (801 27th Street; Evans).

His laugh, is what i remember most. Fishing at Seelies Lake with him, my Dad, Ernie and Uncle Gino. I used to play in the water and wonder what could be so funny. Now... I can only imagine. God bless you and I pray for peace and comfort for all your family.

Friend, brother, teammate for life. Truly will miss Fidel. No matter when and where we played you could find Fe at a waterhole. Fishing. Trips around the state to play ball was always fun. What memories I’ll always have.

So many memories of Fidel. I can only sum them up as he was a great Gabmucs teammate, a wonderful friend, a loving family man, and he was very funny with a great sense of humor. In short he was one of the best people I have ever met. Love you Feefee. Love you Regina. Love to the entire Hernandez family.
