Obituary

Miguel entered peacefully into the Kingdom of Heaven on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 in Salinas, California. Born in La Feria, Texas on July 5, 1931.

Miguel along with his wife and children migrated to the Salinas Valley in 1967. He worked as a migrant agricultural farm worker since childhood and retired from that vocation. He was a man of many talents; he loved to sing church hymns and rancheras, he was an excellent guitarist and accordionist, he was great with cars and automotive repairs, he dabbled in construction and could build you a shed on-demand. He was an animated and engaging storyteller, captivating one’s attention for hours on end. He had a sense of humor like no other and would crack jokes on the fly, making all those in his presence laugh continuously and uncontrollably. One of his most notable gifts was the ability to give wise words of counsel and guidance from those who sought it. A God fearing family man, Miguel was a member of the Apostolic Assembly of the Faith in Christ Jesus and his favorite bible scripture was Isaiah Chapter 55.

Miguel was preceded in death by his wife of 61 years, Herlinda Reyes Yanez, his son Luis “Louie” Yanez, his parents Hilaria Rivera Yanez and Hilario Yanez, and siblings Rogelio, Nazario, Jose, Antonio “Tony”, and Tomasita, Teresa, Juanita, and Margarita.

He is survived by his children; Miguel “Mike” (Mary) of Salinas, Ezequiel “Zeke” (Rosa) of Merced, Rosalinda “Nenita” of Salinas, Alfredo “Frey” of Texas, Fernando “Nando” (Laura) of Salinas, Herlinda “Laly” of Fresno, Jesus “Jesse” (Irene) and Hilario “Lalo” of Salinas, and 22 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild and numerous nieces and nephews throughout the states of Texas, Iowa, Idaho and California.
