Faustino Lerma Jr.

January 7, 1940 — October 18, 2022

Faustino Lerma Jr, 82, of Hamby, Texas passed away on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer the last several months. He died at home surrounded by his loved ones. Faustino was born in San Ygnacio, Texas on January 7, 1940 to Faustino Lerma Sr. and Elia Martinez Lerma. He was the only son and brother to three sisters. Faustino was no stranger to hard work even as a child, picking crops with cousins and family to help sustain their home. As a young man, he enrolled in the United States Army and served his country for several years. He worked for the US Postal Service two different times, finally retiring after many years of service. He married Minerva Garcia in 1967, with whom he had 5 children. He was known as Grandpa Lerma to 14 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. He will be very missed by his family and friends that knew him, but we now rejoice in the fact that he will suffer no more. He has joined his Maker and will reunite with loved ones gone before him. Faustino is survived by his wife of 55 years, Minerva Lerma, his children Luis Lerma (wife Annette), Elia Smithson (husband Bob), Minerva Milne (husband John), Norma Kilgore and Faustino Lerma III. He was preceded in death by his parents Faustino and Elia Lerma and his 3 sisters Belen Cardonita, Abigail Arredondo and Martha Mendoza.
