Elias Villegas

Elias Villegas was born on September 20, 1934 in General Terán, Nuevo León Mexico and came to Orange Cove, California in 1956 when he was 22 years old and married his beautiful wife Sira in 1957. They had seven children Elias Jr “Leo”, Eliud, Sylvia, Sandra, Sulema, Susie and Fernando. He had 14 grandkids and 21 great grandkids. He worked in agriculture as a crew boss for more than 45 years in Orange Cove. He was a very well known, respected hard working man. He was our rock, our example and he taught us the meaning of family. He was very much loved and will be dearly missed but never forgotten.

Abuelo, all my life I\'ve worked hard to show my respect and gratitude for everything you sacrificed, to be the man that you were for us. When life got hard for me, I would think of what you accomplished for us and I would carry on. You have always been my drive to give my own family the strong foundation and the loving, wonderful family life that we all have, because of you. Saying goodbye to you is the hardest thing I\'ve ever done, but I know that your memory will burn even stronger in my heart now, and you\'ll be by my side forever, every day. I promise my children will know what you gave for us.
