Alejandro Yerena, de 66 años, murió el 4 de agosto de 2022 con su familia a su lado en San José, California. Nació el 27 de noviembre de 1955 en Guanajuato, México, hijo de Silvestre y María Yerena. El mayor de diez hermanos y hermanas fue el primero en emigrar a los Estados Unidos en sus últimos años de adolescencia. En 1985 conoció a su pareja y esposa de toda la vida, Evelyn, juntos tuvieron 5 hijos. Sus momentos más felices los pasaba rodeado de familiares y amigos contando historias y haciendo reír a todos con sus chistes. Era como un segundo papa para sus hermanos, sobrinas y sobrinos. Mostró amor y respeto a todos los que lo encontraron. Enseñó a sus hijos a trabajar duro, a vivir su vida con respeto y amor y a dejar que Dios hiciera el resto. Al crecer disfrutó jugar béisbol, luego fue softball, donde jugó 1ª base o lanzó para el equipo de familia. Más recientemente, disfrutó ver a sus nietas y familiares jugar el deporte que significaba tanto para él. Siempre pudiste encontrarlo animándolos en los campos de softball del Vet’s o en los torneos de fin de semana. Hizo amigos dondequiera que iba y apreciaba sus amistades de toda la vida, algunas que abarcan más de 50 años. Sus historias, sus consejos y su sentido del humor serán extrañados por todos. A Alejandro le sobreviven su esposa, Evelyn; su madre, María Yerena; sus 4 hijas y sus parejas- Mayra y Javier Zendejas, Elizabeth y Nathan Avila, Evelyn Yerena (Manuel), Patricia Yerena (Luis) ; su hijo, Alejandro Yerena Jr; sus 5 nietas y su primer nieto por nacer; Sophia Guzmán, Leandra Zendejas, Maya Ávila, Gianna Guzmán, Lexi Zendejas y Niño-Varón Orozco; sus 3 hermanos; sus 6 hermanas y muchas sobrinas, sobrinos y primos. Fue precedido en la muerte por su padre, Silvestre Yerena. Servicios de la siguiente manera: Velación y rosario: 18 de agosto de 2022, en la funeraria Grunnagle-Ament-Nelson.

He was born November 27, 1955 in Guanajuato, Mexico to Silvestre and Maria Yerena. The oldest of ten siblings, he was the first to migrate to the United States in his late teenage years. In 1985 he met his life-long partner and wife, Evelyn, together they had 5 children. His happiest moments were spend surrounded by family and friends telling stories and making everyone laugh with his jokes. He was like a second father to his siblings, nieces and nephews. He showed love and respect to everyone who encountered him. He taught his children to work hard, to live their life with respect and love and to let God do the rest. Growing up he enjoyed playing baseball, then it was softball, where he played 1st base or pitched for the family team. Most recently he enjoyed watching his granddaughters and family members play the sport that meant so much to him. You could always find him cheering them on at the Vet’s Softball Fields or tagging along for weekend tournaments, rain or shine. He made friends everywhere he went and cherished his lifelong friendships, some that span more than 50 years. His stories, his advice and sense of humor will be missed by all.
