Juan Hernandez

June 24, 1932 — June 21, 2015

Juan U. Hernandez passed away on Sunday, June 21st at Midland Memorial Hospital in Midland, Texas at the age of 82, due to complications from Alzheimer's.

Juan was born on June 24, 1932 to Francisco and Paz Uranga Hernandez in Marfa, Texas. He was the youngest of 8 children. He married Dora Hernandez on September 12, 1959. Together they had 2 daughters, Patricia and Cynthia.

He made a living as a carpenter and cabinetmaker and spent his extra time in his shop working on wood projects. He enjoyed baseball from the time he was a little boy, and would always tell us that when he was in grade school the teacher just loved to watch him play baseball during recess. He played baseball on the Marfa Indians and Old-timers baseball teams until his mid 40's . While he had to move to Midland a few years ago due to his health, he never forgot his hometown of Marfa and his old friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Dora, and his brothers, Manuel Hernandez, Jesus Hernandez, Pete Hernandez, and sisters, Concha Flores Anita Granado, and Lucia Hernandez. He is survived by one brother Nasario Hernandez of McAllen, Texas, his daughters; Patricia Cowan of Midland, Texas and Cynthia Zamora of League City, Texas and one grandson Brandon Cowan of Midland, Texas and several nieces and nephews.
