Macario Favar Hernandez, 96, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, September 19, 2020. Macario was born December 25, 1923 in San Antonio, Texas to parents Petra Favar and Epigmenio Tinajero Hernandez. Macario was a migrant work who traveled all over. He met the love of his life, Celia Hernandez while working in Brownsville, Texas. They married in 1951 and were married for 68 years and had 4 children. Macario and his family moved to San Angelo, Texas where he raised his children. His life was one of hard work, devotion to God and Family. He instilled in his children high ethical standards, honesty, integrity and charity. He emphasized that they had a moral obligation to Justice and fairness, to the rights of all, but more so for the less fortunate and disenfranchised. He saw history made, and in a small way was a part of it. A devout Catholic, his faith stemmed from his own parents who’s despite his mother being half Jewish, were so close the church. He wanted for his children to learn everything possible, as a voracious reader, he was interested in every subject. In the 1940’s and 1950’s he worked at everything from seasonal farm jobs, the Sante Fe Railroad, and myriad other jobs. One of the Jobs he had while in his 20’s was with the New York King Architectural firm which had commissions throughout the world. He was an assistant/chauffeur to Mr. King and traveled among many places. He loved nature and animals. He was proud of his children, Mike, the youngest, being a quarterback for the Central High School Bobcats in the mid-70’s, his only daughter, Blanca, a hardworking, smart and creative person, Joe and Frank who he steered towards Law, both graduating from U of H Law School. He loved his daughters-in-law, Mary Mediano Hernandez and Monette H. Molinar, Monette being the only one that would stand to his sometimes strong character and did more for him and his wife, Celia than anyone else. He is preceded in death by his parents, his son, Frank Efrain Hernandez and his beloved pet Coco. Macario is survived by his wife, Celia, his son, Joe Hernandez and wife, Dr. Sylvia Soto Hernandez of San Angelo; his son, Mike Hernandez of San Angelo, Texas; his daughter, Blanca Hernandez of New Braunfels, Texas and daughters-in-law, Monette H.
