He is survived by his wife Alma Fierro; and daughters - Lydia Willingham (Kenneth), Yvette Matthews, Velma Fierro (Freeman) and Valerie Fierro.  He is also survived by his brothers - Jesse Fierro, Sr. (Queta), Federico Fierro (Romelia), Baltazar Fierro (Marta), Guillermo Fierro (Mary), and Angel Fierro (Jerri); and his grandchildren - Kasandra Tejada (Blake), Echo Hopkins (Joshua), Jamie Mitchell (Cole), Krystle Fierro, Colton Madore (Amber), Anthony Matthews, Sofia Matthews, Christopher Fierro-Williams (Casandra), Michael Willingham, nineteen adoring great grandchildren and many special nieces and nephews.  
Dad instructed us to keep things simple. We are honoring his wishes. What we want you to know about him is that he passed on to us the importance of a good work ethic and give everything your all.  Dad taught us to trust in God’s plan and was dedicated to our Catholic faith.  Dad loved his family more than anything.  
He showed us what unconditional love is. While he will be missed more than words can say, we move forward knowing we were loved by the best and will have the strength to go on because of his lessons.  
Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church.
