Santiago T. Hernandez, better known as “Chago”, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 30th, 2022. He was born in Bishop, Texas on September 2, 1944, to his parents, Alfredo and Prisciliana Hernandez. He was a wonderful, caring, and loving brother, uncle, cousin, and friend who was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
Chago worked for the State of Texas doing road construction. He was a man who celebrated life with joy and happiness.
