Felipe de Jesús Aguilar Hernández

JACKSONVILLE — Felipe Aguilar, after struggling with health issues, finally slipped away from the bonds of his family's affection for him on Saturday, March 15.  Felipe was born on February 5, 1961, in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico, to Jesús and Rafaela Aguilar. He leaves behind his companion and loving wife of 28 years, Elizabeth Aguilar. They formalized their union on November 23, 1999.  

Felipe had an awesome sense of humor; he always lit up a room whenever he entered.  He loved plays on words.  He often wore a T-shirt that said "Everyday I wake up more handsome, but today I exaggerated."  

Felipe spent most of his money-making time doing day labor, such as yardwork, property cleanup, small carpentry jobs, and the like. When Felipe was younger, he was kind of hard on himself and it was later in life when he realized he needed to change many of his habits.

Besides his wife, Felipe leaves behind a big family:  brother Juan José, step-children Víctor  Romero, Emanuel "Jerry" Romero, Nohemí Dina González, Edna Lozano, Ana Elizabeth Senisch and Juan "Johnny" Romero.  Several step-grandkids: Víctor, Erick, Raúl, Jonathan, Matthew, Vanessa, Jeannette, Christopher, James, Noemí, Max, Isaac and Samantha.

On the day of Felipe's death, the family got together to speak of their fond memories of Felipe.  His remains were later cremated under the care of Autry Funeral Home and a memorial service will be held for Felipe at the Templo Senda de Luz at 6:00 p.m., Saturday, March 22.  Felipe will be

sorely missed.
