Mr. Hernández was born on December 31, 1960 in Plainview, Texas to Esperanza and José R.
Hernández. He graduated from Caprock High School in Amarillo, Texas. George worked for

Campos, Sergio Campos, Jonathan Paulsen, Jlyn Garcia, Celeste Rocha, Nevaeh Rocha, Francisco Zamora,
Janelle Portillo, Anthony Marez and many nieces, nephews and extended family.
George loved spending time with his wife, Bea and all of his grandchildren and relaxing with his
fur babies while enjoying a cold Budweiser. You never touched his sweets, especially his Oreo
cookies or it would be a fight. He became a fan of day time drama, namely, The Bold and the
Beautiful , while recovering from surgery at home. Distance never stopped George from
supporting his nephews and nieces in all their sports. The Dallas Cowboys, Tejano music and
Diego ¨The Animal¨ Hernández will never have a bigger fan. He played softball and league pool
for many years. He collected aluminum can tabs which at the moment consisted of 7 gallons.
He never would pass up a chance to test his luck on scratch off lottery tickets-luck was always
on his side. He enjoyed good friends and good times. The party did not get started until
George got there. If you knew George, you would never miss out on his dry humor and quick
wit. George was always brutally honest. He had a big heart and strong convictions-just read
his political memes. George was a fighter and a cancer survivor, but God wanted him and now
he is set free. He will always be in our hearts and will be greatly missed. Until we meet again.
