Julio Cesar Hernandez, affectionately known as Julio, has peacefully passed away on September 1, 2023, in Modesto, CA. Born on June 15, 1974, in the vibrant city of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, Julio was the beloved son of Cristina Zamudio and Ramon Hernandez, and the eldest of four children.
Julio was an exemplary brother to Christine Quintero, Burt Rodriguez, and Joel Zavala. His role as the eldest sibling was one he cherished deeply, always setting an example of love, kindness, and responsibility. He was also an uncle to the highlight of life, his niece Nicolette Monte Diaz also known as "Baby" whom he dearly loved. His family will remember him as the pillar of strength, always willing to lend a hand and protect those he loved.
Julio was not only a dedicated family man, but also a hardworking individual who spent a decade as a laborer for a temporary agency. Despite the demanding nature of his job, he always approached it with tenacity and a positive spirit. His co-workers remember him as a man of integrity, someone who was always ready to go the extra mile.
A lover of life and all its simple pleasures, Julio was a die-hard fan of the Raiders. His passion for the team was infectious, and he never missed a game. He also had a soft spot for boxing, a sport he followed with unwavering enthusiasm. However, his interests were not limited to sports. He enjoyed the sweet taste of blue Kool-Aid, the refreshing crunch of watermelon sprinkled with Tajin, and the comfort of a good old peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Julio will be remembered as a man who was as funny as he was loving and kind. His sense of humor was one of his most endearing traits, often bringing a smile to the faces of those around him. He had a knack for making people laugh, even in the most challenging times, a quality that will be sorely missed by his friends and family.
Julio is survived by his son, Julio Hernandez Gaxiola, who will forever hold memories of his father's love and laughter in his heart. Julio's legacy will continue in his son, who will always remember his father as a man of kindness, humor, and unwavering dedication to his family.
In the words of the renowned author Dr. Seuss, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." This quote perfectly encapsulates Julio's spirit and his approach to life. He embraced every moment with joy and gratitude, leaving behind a legacy of love and laughter that will forever be cherished by his family.
Julio Cesar Hernandez was a man of many virtues, a beacon of love, kindness, and humor in the lives of those who knew him. His memory will forever be engrained in the hearts of his family, friends, and all those whose lives were touched by his presence. His spirit will live on, reminding us all to embrace life with joy, laughter, and love.
