Edwardo Hernandez Obituary (1978 – 2021) – Raymondville, TX


Edwardo Hernandez, 42, entered eternal rest on Wednesday, September 22, 2021.
He was born on December 26, 1978 to Antonio Hernandez Jr. and Rosalinda Vasquez Hernandez of Weslaco. He was the second child of four children of Mr. and Mrs. Hernandez.
Eddie was the son of migrant workers, who traveled north to work in the fields of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Missouri during their summers. Eddie experienced this life and at the age of 9 or 10 he was also brought up to work in the fields (el azadon) with his parents and older brother. They left him at the head of a field of ranks so that he could watch and learn how the job was done. As morning approached noon, his family returned across the fields to join him for lunch, only to find that he had eaten all of lunch. This was the last field encounter Eddie would have and has since been sent to care for his two younger siblings at home. He went to school and would take care of his little brother and sister, helping them with their homework and cooking dinner for them.
Eddie graduated from the Weslaco High School class of 1998. At school, Eddie was easygoing and made many friends, who quickly became his family. Being the adventurer he was, right after high school, he and one of his best friends Riley left home to work on the barges off the coast of Louisiana. They became apprentice welders and found work on the oil rigs. Upon returning to Texas, Eddie found seasonal work at Pioneer Seed Company where he worked on seed palletizing and enrolled in TSTC as part of the Draft and Design program. While in college, he found part-time work at Magic Valley Electric Company as a GPS collector, then full-time as a meter technician. He worked for MVEC for 10 years.
In 1999, at TSTC, he met his future wife Monica, although she did not know it yet. They dated from 2003 until they got married in 2005. Their marriage was full of adventure and the outdoors. Their love of horses and farm life led them to purchase land in Sebastian, Texas, and the La Amistad Ranch was born. They entertained and welcomed family and friends whenever they had the chance. They have participated and organized many hikes on their ranch. Countless birthdays and holidays have been celebrated at La Amistad Ranch.
Eddie will be best remembered as a humble, kind, and lively man. He was keen on fishing and hunting, and when the weather permitted you would find him hunting in land or fishing somewhere off the coast. His work ethic was only reflected in his generosity. Where he needed help, you would find him there, helping out where he could. His motivation was driven by the lifelong need for Hecharle Ganas. He wore his heart on his sleeve. If you ever got a phone call at 4 or 5 in the morning from him, it was just to remind you that, one- you were burning the light of day, two- To thank God for blessing us with another day, and three- Breakfast was calling.
He is survived by his wife, Monica Hernandez, son, Dylan Edwardo Hernandez, father, Antonio Hernandez Jr., mother, Rosalinda Hernandez, siblings, Antonio Hernandez III (Rosalia), Luis Hernandez (Nora), Patricia Ann Rivera ( Noe), and nieces and nephews, Ashley Kay, Antonio IV, Diego, Gissel, Rosy, Kaylie, Michael, Makeyla, Ryan, Cassandra, Odalys, Crystal, Kassie, Luisito, Celena, Angel (+), Noe Rivera Jr, Misael Rivera, and Ariana Noemi Rivera.
Eddie is predeceased by his paternal grandmother, Teresa Moreno, his maternal grandfather, Francisco Vasquez, and his maternal grandmother, Tomasita Vasquez.
