Fernando B. Nunez was called home to be with our Lord peacefully on Friday, August 14th, surrounded by his loving family. Fernando (“Junie”) was born in Fromberg, Montana to Fernando M. and Natalia Nunez and spent his early childhood in the town of Fromberg, just outside Billings. His family then moved to California. Fernando was raised in San Bernardino where he attended school and made it his home. Fernando was the brother in the middle of 7 other brothers (Raymond, Rafael, Julio, Tony, Roy, Ruben, Gabriel) and 2 sisters (Amparo, Carmen). He worked throughout the Inland Empire, first at Kayser-Roth Hosiery, then at Elliott Precision Block Co., Ameron Steel, and Angelus Block Co. before retiring in 2002. Fernando enjoyed playing his guitar and singing songs for many years and for many people. First, with the fabulous “Nunez Bros.” local dance band of 1965-70, then with his “Trio Nunez” brothers. Very artistic, his hobby was creating various pieces of art in his outdoor workshop thru carving, welding, and building. There was nothing he could not make himself. Fernando enjoyed 4-wheeling and working on his jeeps. His favorite sport was basketball. Always a Lakers fan, he enjoyed playing the game on Saturday mornings well into his 50’s. Most of all, Fernando always loved gathering with family & friends to celebrate life and enjoy each other. Fernando is survived by his wife of 60 years, Jennie; His son Freddy and daughter Michelle. His other daughter Lorraine went to be with our Savior in 2013. Fernando has 7 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. As in his life by faith, Fernando did not leave any one of us behind. Instead, he went ahead of you, just to see if he could help our Lord Jesus prepare a place for you…“since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.” (Hebrews 11:40) “Peace to the brothers and sisters, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Ephesians 6:23)

There is a lot of things this world has to teach someone, but I am glad you were part of my world grandpa. You gave me the foundation of who I am today. The times we shared in your jungle like backyard, the painful to the fingers guitar lessons, the playing basketball until we burned, and so much more.

I would like to think that everyone that shared a memory with my grandfather not only remembers him, but also looked at something to pass along to their family, as I have.

You know....the blessings one has today are not always clear but during hard times, I ask myself "What am I grateful for?" and everything just seems a bit more easier because I had you grandpa.

I love you grandpa. I know I will see you again. Just get ready for me to ask for an eternity of guitar lessons.

In this life, whenever I remember my Dad, it has always been the good times we had growing up, his smiles, and words of encouragement. Camping, off roading in the Jeep, and fishing with my Dad and the rest of my family live in my heart forever. My dad could do anything. He could build it, fix it, create it, you name it. He did many things and believed each one of his kids, and grandkids, could do the same. I know that belief and encouragement is a large part of our success today. Thanks for your love & memories Dad. Until we all meet again in heaven.
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4‬:‭13-18‬ KJV)

Fernando and I were childhood friends. We didn’t see each other much over the years as we both grew into our own lives. However, early life experiences have an impact on us. I will always remember Fernando as a quiet, thoughtful young man with a welcoming beautiful smile. Peace be with you my friend. Till we meet again. Vaya con Dios.
