He will be buried alongside his wife at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens in Caldwell, ID. Secundino Loera was born in La Primavera (Las Moras) Calvillo, Aguascalientes, Mexico on April 9, 1917 to Carlos de Loera Rodriguez and Teodora Salas Rojas. A loving spouse, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great great-grandfather that always worked very hard to provide for his family. He worked at Symms Fruit Ranch from 1980-2000 and was known as “Abuelo.” He is reunited with his beloved wife Maria Asuncion “Doña Concha” Loera, whom he never forgot and was very anxious to see again. He loved to listen to his music by Las Jilguerills, gardening and make frequent trips to Jackpot to test his luck. His favorite pastime was sitting outside reminiscing about the good ‘ol times. A fan of Antonio Aguilar & Los Hermanos Almada movies and Jaripeo shows, he loved his old Mexican culture. Raised on beans and flour tortillas he was a simple and humble man. His laughter came from many things but one we all remember are the nicknames he gave to the “adventurous” family members. Just to name a few – Gabino Barrera (Jessie), Doña Julia and Ana Barbara (Lupe), Asavache (Mickey), La India (Yesenia), Masorraque (Daniel) y Gorda (Vero). He will be remembered for driving around the canal roads on his four wheeler, picking up groceries and buying scratch tickets at Mike’s Sunnyslope Market and watching his novelas every evening. We loved to hear all his stories; how he met his wife, growing up in Mexico, being present at the horse races of “El Moro de Cumba” and at a very young age working as a “Bracero” in the United States. His favorite quote was from his father “Live your life the way God intended it.” We were all very lucky to have known and shared 95 years with him. God graced us with his presence, morals, and manners. We will miss him and his memory will live in our hearts. He has left us in pain but we know he is in a better place and will be looking down at us. “We love you Dad/grandpa, Thank you for everything you did for us.” He is survived by his siblings, Antonio Loera, Juan Loera, Samuel Loera, Jose Loera, Leocadia Reyes and Guadalupe Loera. His eight children, Jesus (Guadalupe) de Loera, Abel ( Jesus) Loera, Oliva (Pablo) Rodriguez, Jose (Celsa) de Loera, Noe (Maria) Loera, Carlos (Sabina) de Loera, Martin (Cynthia) de Loera, and Manuel (Raquel) Loera. 56+ grandchildren, 114+ great-grandchildren and 9+ great-great-grandchildren.
