September 3, 1930 to July 30, 2019
Ernesto Jimenez of Calexico leaves behind his loving wife, Rosa, his beloved children Ernestina of Roseville, Ruben of Palm Springs, Edward of Oceanside, and Evelia of El Centro. Ernesto loved his grandchildren to no end, Dr. Edward S. Jimenez of New Mexico and Jacqueline K. Vetter of San Diego.
His heart and smile bloomed brighter with the love, happiness and joy his great-grandchildren Hallie, Caliegh, Ellie, Orion, Ricardo and Maya brought him and whom he had hoped to someday teach to drive a sand buggy by the lake.
In heaven, his sons Raul and Robert, his brothers Pedro and German, and his beloved mother, Angelina, will all embrace and welcome him to a heavenly reunion. Ernesto loved his family and friends who made his life full and brought him many wonderful memories filled with laughter, joy, great food and beer. Ernesto was a kind, gentle soul who inspired many, and was the anchor in our family. We love him to no end and miss him dearly.
A church service will be held at Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala Friday, September 6, at 1 p.m.
