Gilberto Garcia Hernandez
Gilberto Garcia Hernandez (known affectionately as PoPo), passed away Aug. 2, 2018. He was born May 31, 1930 in Gregory, Texas to Romάn and Antonia Hernandez. He married the love of his life, Leonor (Noné to those who loved her). They had one son, Gilbert, they loved him with all their hearts. Sadly, he lost both of them when God called them home. Gilberto truly devoted his life to God and his family. He was the perfect example of a good Christian man who practiced his faith and led by example. He found the goodness in everyone and helped guide them down the right path to the Lord. When his health started to decline, his grandson, Nikolas along with his wife Ashley, moved here to help me give him the love and care he needed. The last year of his life was lived to the fullest and he leaves behind so many beautiful memories for everyone to cherish. PoPo was not afraid to die because as he told us toward the end .... “Noné and Gilbert are waiting for me on the other side of the window. I want to go with them to Heaven.” He leaves behind his grandchildren, Nikolas (Ashley) and Nathan Hernandez; two great-grandchildren who he loved dearly, Kallyn and Jaritt Kimbrell. A Rosary was and Mass were held Friday, Aug. 10 at Mary’s Star of the Sea Catholic Church.
