Very sad news indeed. I was already thinking about how to squeeze in a trip or two from san diego to Tj to help his beautiful project.

Tears in my eyes say goodbye Fernando. I feel like a friend has passed even tho I never met him personally.

DEP

Ferna...que descansas ahorra en el cielo y que Dios cuida su familia bonita. Eres grande y los del otro lado tienen suerte tenerte a su lado ahorra.

It has been a tough couple weeks as several friends of ours have passed over to the other side...those of you who know me well know my thoughts on the slow rapture...pondering that at each loss.

What? I'm stunned. Such an outgoing, energetic man. A heart of gold, and whose compassion touched hundreds of lives. Rest in Peace Fernando. Prayers for comfort for his family at this difficult time.

I am stunned!

He was such a young man.

Very kind hearted, and helpful beyond belief. This is one person that will be sorely missed in all of Baja, not just the Tijuana area.

A tear is flowing as I write this.

Danielle, Sofia, Fernando Jr and Simone,

What an extreme loss for all of us.

I love the words of DianaT - "May you find some peace in knowing how much your father was appreciated by so many"

Your family has touched the hearts of mine. With your inspiration the annual toy drive became an event we looked forward to sharing with you.

Today, we share your loss. I will see you tonight, and my daughter Sara and her husband Jesse extend their love from Colorado. We loved your dad! A great man!

Love,

Scot, Sara, Jesse and family.

Nice to see a picture of him. He did so much for the kids. He's in a much better place now.

I have known Ferna for 16 years. He was always kind and willing to share his Baja California with everyone.

Edit to add the first photo I took of Ferna back in early 2000 on the San Clemente Pier at perhaps the first organized meeting of "Baja Internet" people.

I never met the man, or his family. I am also too new to this forum to be aware of his story.

I sounds like that is my loss! DEP Fernando.

It wasn't our first meeting, but after my stroke, I landed in Kaiser Hospital, and who bops into my room, but Ferna.
I said...WTF are you doing here? "I work here" ...he said. I'm sure glad he didn't have a bedpan in his hand.
Same trip...I was wheeled back to my room from testing and Doug was waiting there to spend some time...and I think Wooosh had dropped by with a few ****ty porn magazines. It's nice to have friends.

Ferna was such a gift to this earth. He was happy and knowledgeable, a man filled with dreams who accomplished many things. Always helping someone while sharing that big beautiful smile. We were friends.... and it has been an honor to know him. My deep sympathies to the family.

As with Diane, his number is in my phone. I cannot bear to delete it.
Rest in Peace, amigo.

It's a sad time for family and friends.

I never met Fernando but have followed him on this board and his toy drive. Such a very sad day to lose a man that cared so much for the children and made a huge difference in their lives, a gift for Christmas can mean so much to know that someone cares.
He was there for others in need as well. This world needs more people like Fernando.
Sincere condolences to the family and friends that were fortunate enough to have known this man.
RIP Fernando.

So saddened to hear of Ferna's death. I never met him in person but we had many written exchanges over the years during which I think I got to know him well, and it was all good. He was a truly wonderful person and he will be greatly missed. Que lastima.

Close. On both counts. ;)

My Sincere Condolences to the Family


What a devastating loss of such a good man.

He freely gave his time to advise and encourage me about setting up a refuge for abused women in Mexico.

My heart goes out to his family.

I am crushed! Ferna was literally my wingman a few times when I really really needed a wingman. He had my back.
I honestly wish I could have spent more time with him. I don't say that about many people.
I met his beautiful family and my sincerest sympathies go to them.
