Victor Tijerina, 66, went to be with the Lord on January 15, 2018. He retired from the Houston Fire Department after 28 years of dedicated service.

He truly enjoyed every moment that he spent with his wonderful grand-daughter, Mercedes Rose Tijerina.
Before his death, he got a chance to cross off a momentous event from his bucket list ~ to see the Houston Astros win the World Series, with his son, Sergio Tijerina, whom he loved and adored with all his heart.
He is survived by his loving wife, Rosalinda Tijerina and children: Sergio Daniel Tijerina and wife, Cristelia and Sonia Marie Tijerina; and an amazing grand-daughter, Mercedes Rose Tijerina.
