Leroy A. Hernandez
June 26, 1956 ~ April 8, 2019
It is with great sadness that the family of Leroy A. Hernandez announces his calling home to Heaven on April 8, 2019.
Leroy was preceded in death by his parents (Primitivo Padilla, Betty Padilla, Lorene Hernandez) and his sister (Vicki Hernandez).
Leroy will be forever and lovingly missed by his wife of 34 years, Bernice Hernandez; his children (Ralph Ruiz [and wife, Celeste Ruiz] and Latisia Gonzales); his God-children (Leroy Saucedo, Khystar Humphries, Tonia Garcia, Andrena Archuleta, Jordan Manri´quez and Angelyna Alvarado); his grandchildren (Primitivo Ruiz, Ethan Marti´nez, Kamara Gonzales, and Kristina Gonzales); and his siblings (Betsy Martinez, Antonia Hernandez, Nancy Rodriguez, Diane Saucedo, and William Hernandez).
Leroy was born on June 26, 1956 in Denver, Colorado. Soon after turning 18, he served his Country for 3 years in the United States Army.
Leroy devoted his life to his wife and his children. There was no sacrifice he would not make to make his family happy. He cared deeply, not only for his grandchildren, God-children and siblings, but anyone who came into his life. Leroy will always be remembered by as the man who selflessly gave anyone a helping hand, nurturing advice, and a man with many stories to tell.
Memorial services will be held at Autumn Funerals and Cremations in Carson City, NV on April 15, 2019 from 4-8 PM.
Mass and Funeral services will be held at St. Teresa's Catholic Church on April 16, 2019 at 11:00 AM. A celebration of Leroy's life will be held at St. Teresa's Catholic Church immediately following the services.
