Mr. Ramon Serna, Jr. passed away on Thursday, July 15, 2021, at the age of 91 in Laredo, Texas. Mr. Serna was a strict but loving, hard-working father. He was better known as “el jefe” to his 16 children. For most of his life, he was a migrant farmworker who traveled with his whole family to look for work in the northern states and when they returned, he took pride in running his own business which was his famous “fruit stand’. He enjoyed spending time with his friends at the flea market during the weekends. He also had an eye for classic cars, as well as western wear. He would never go a day without drinking coke. Our dad was heartbroken when his beloved wife of over 70 years of marriage passed away, but we are comforted to know that they are together again and now both are watching over all of us. May he rest in peace.
He is preceded in death by his beloved wife Maria del Carmen Serna; children, Natalia Nelda Serna, Enrique Alberto Serna, and Maria Berta Serna.
Mr. Serna is survived by his children, Jose Luis (Berta) Serna, Victor Manuel Serna, Sara Serna (Ivan Gomez), Ramon (Vera) Serna, Jr., Jesus (Angie) Serna, Juan Ruben Serna, Natalia Ramoncita Serna, Eduardo (Sandra) Serna, Alejandro (Nelly) Serna, Diana Laura Serna, Juan Antonio Serna, Antonio Juan Serna. He is also survived by numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, friends, and relatives.
