(Part lll) Fathers Tribute
You never rushed me even though you were probably rolling your eyes saying “ aye roseanna “ Thank you for being my shoulder and ears, I know you listened with all your heart. I learned many things about life from our talks. I will hold tight to all our conversations. You always said to me what will need to happen will happen and It will be ok. If I was able to speak to you again, I know you would tell me just that. That you are ok.

“ Les diré esto en español lo mejor que pueda a los dos, a Edna y a mi padre Dan y yo prometos vivir nuestra mejor vida juntos. para compartir nuestro amor y compromiso como ambos. Siempre le dije a mi papá que quiero que encuentres el amor que quiero que seas feliz y descubrió que en ti edna estaba realmente feliz de que estaba viviendo su mejor vida a tu lado. gracias a ambos por mostrarme lo que es el compromiso y el amor. gracias Edna por amar a mi papá a pesar de todo. ¡Tienes un lugar especial en mi corazón para siempre! “

The moment before the phone call what I felt in prayer was so powerful Pops. As I spent time praying for you and Gods will, the Lord was calling you home. You knew God, he was in your heart, and I know I was alone in prayer with you and him to guide you in your last breath. It was beautiful to me pops and I feel you near me these days . I will miss hearing your voice , I will hold on to that last hug and kiss I ever shared with you as if you are here to give me that every day , and know that you will live on inside of me , until my last breath. Until we see each other again , watch over us all , I love you

(Part ll) Fathers Tribute
He was intimidating to people. Big, tall , proper and his why so serious look -I can see why... He loved his Red and I am grateful that my father and him knew and respected each other. He was Always asking how his Red was doing, always reminding me “ don’t mess it up mija “ A Father just knows when the right man comes around and he was happy for the love we found in each other . Thank you pops , for loving me and Red and my kids to the absolute fullest. We felt how much you loved and cared for us . He was a man who did things the right way - no short cuts in his book of life . Especially when it came to cooking. Thank you pops, you taught me how to do things the right way , everyday , all the time , in everything . I see more clearer the ever who exactly I take after . Except for cooking , asking you how to make the same dish over and over again. And of course your directions never changed. Your food was the best food, you put your heart and soul In it and I will miss bugging you with how to cook. He put his heart and soul in all he did . He was a man of honesty, some times too honest . But I love the heck out of him for it. Again, thank you pops - when I reflect on myself ,I truly am my Fathers daughter. I will always carry a piece of you with me and I find so much comfort in that. I will never forget the day we were on the phone and he said I am so proud of you Mija. It was one of our heart to heart conversations and we spoke about religion that day , he was proud that I found my relationship with God. Pops, you were the closest person to me , you were the person I would call first if I ever needed to talk, or needed your words of wisdom and truth , or just vent over anything , you were the person who understood me, and always calmed me after our talks. I loved every talk we ever had, and laugh at how we would start with one thing and awhile later we have talked about everything and anything.

( Part 1) Father’s Tribute ..
Tough , that is who my Father was . Tough in love , tough in character , tough in all the ways . He was tough even up until his last breath. I have always described him as tough love, and I loved that about him in all his years. There was a time where I got upset at his tough love . I was stubborn , something he also knows a little about . But There came a time when I reached out to him, because I needed my Father . From that day on , I never strayed away from him and kept him even closer to my heart than ever before. I held on to all he had to give me- His love in his way . Thank you pops, for being a Father to me, for your truthfulness even when it hurt, I know you loved me with all your heart. . He was one cool dude, Always clean cut and looking so fresh , he was a Big Dog , and there was a time where that’s all he wore was Big Dog. He was Always bringing laughs out of people , making jokes and comments , and always laughing or smiling along. He always meant well. Even when it came off rude, that was just who you were pops and I for sure loved you for it. He definitely was a cool Uncle on both sides of my family . Leaving so many of us with memories that involved him and his goofiness . I know that Family meant a lot to him. I know that when his kids and grandkids could gather with him and his , it made his heart so happy. Pops , thank you for showing me that family knows no distance. Thank you for always including me and mine in family get togethers. No matter what, your love always remained for me, and I felt that love.

From San Carlos Irrigation Project-IW,
We send our deepest condolences and prayers to Fernando’s “Sonny” Family and all who knew him and loved him. Sonny will be missed and he will always be remembered. Sonny worked for SCIP-IW for 5yrs and in that time he touched lives, inspired some and he was encouraging and a positive individual. He loved to joke around and loved to laugh and reminisce about his younger days but what Fernando loved the most was to talk about his family and how proud and blessed he was to be a husband, dad and Tata. God Bless Fernando and God be with him on his journey home to Heaven.

Remember him as a “little guy” growing up in Parker, lost touch until he went to work in Sacaton then transferred to Coolidge.

Always looking how to work smarter and use of technology to make jobs/tasks easier for fellow employees.

Heartfelt condolences to the family.
