Hernandez, Jimmy

Obituary

Jimmy was born November 28, 1949 to Inez and Jimmy Hernandez in Dallas, Texas. When Jimmy Gilbert Hernandez passed away May 8, 2021 the world got a lot less fun. As the first-born child, Jimmy was shown a lot of love from his parents, especially his beloved mother, and some would say he was spoiled. Soon after, Jimmy, or ‘Corky’ as he was nicknamed by his family, became big brother to three sisters: Linda, Nancy, and Debra.

A class clown and ladies’ man, Jimmy made a lot of friends throughout school and life. He never met a stranger and kept friends for many years. Jimmy loved joking around, kidding his friends and family and just having a good time.

Jimmy was an avid sports fan, especially the Dallas Cowboys. He was so passionate about football you could hear him yelling at the TV from outside. As a young man, Jimmy also enjoyed playing golf with his cousin, John Chavez.

Jimmy had two great loves in his life. From these two remarkable ladies he fathered four children: Christie Hernandez, Michelle Harmon and Michael and Tony Hernandez. He loved his kids and did his best to provide for them.

He embraced being a great grandfather towards the end of his life when his first great grandchild, Jackson Jennings, was born. He never got the chance to meet and dote on his first great granddaughter, Evalyn Gelina.

Jimmy passed away after a brief illness and spent his final days surrounded by his children, family, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Inez, sisters Linda Hernandez and Nancy Ovalle.

Jimmy is survived by Father Jimmy Hernandez, daughters Christie Hernandez and Michelle Harmon, sons Michael and Tony Hernandez, stepson Richard Harkrader, sons-in-law Will Castillo and Eric Harmon, sister Debra Gardner.

He is also survived by his grandchildren Elizabeth Nicholson and Christopher and Justin Gelina, great-grandson Jackson Jennings and great-granddaughter Evalyn Gelina.

Other beloved family members included nieces Linda Ovalle, Analisa Munoz, Cortney and Mia Garner and nephew Alex Garner and many great-nieces and nephews.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
