Rosalio Hernandez, 86 of Hondo, Texas, passed away on Wednesday, February 10, 2021. He was also known as “Chalio” or “Rosie” but to us he was known as Dad.

Rosalio lived in Guadalupe, Arizona and is survived by his wife Angelita Hernandez of 51 years, his children, Ricardo and wife Amanda, Rosalie and husband Fernando, Delma and husband Jesse, Diana and husband Dave, Daniel and wife Imelda, Sally and husband Armando, David and wife Nancy, Irene and husband Roberto, Delia.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Francisco and Ramona Hernandez and his sister Máge Olibarria.

Rosalio loved driving and was a truck driver for over 60 years. When he wasn’t on the road, he was home enjoying his family and friends, collecting and restoring classic cars with his sons and joking with his daughters. In his later years, he took joy in his role as a tata.

A special thank you to everyone who has reached out to us during this time. Thank you for all your prayers and encouraging words.
