ALFONSO HERRERA

May 29, 1941- December 12, 2022

 

Alfonso Herrera, 81, joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on Monday, December 12, 2022.

Alfonso “Poncho” Herrera was born in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico in 1941.  Alfonso was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend to those who knew him.  He was happily married to Mrs. Angelina Garcia-Herrera for the past 56 years whom he deeply loved and cared for.  Alfonso was a hardworking man who loved his family, and wanted the best for his four daughters.  He was a proud Dad because all his daughters were 1st generation college graduates who continued on to have successful careers.  Poncho loved to BBQ for his family on Sundays listening to the Cadetes de Linares, was an avid baseball fan, and a lifelong fan of the Tecolotes.  He was also a handyman around the home never finding a project too complicated.  Mr. Herrera was a parishioner of Mother Cabrini Church.  He instilled his morale values and beliefs in his family which will live on.

He was preceded in death by his mother Paula M. Herrera, father Luis Herrera; brothers and sisters, Luis Herrera, David Herrera, Juanita N. Martinez, and Olga Orozco.
