Eleazar (Tony) Herrea, son of Maria Villegas Ramirez and Ramon Herrera Amaro, was born in Paredones Baja Califonia, Mexico, on August 23rd 1957 as the youngest child in a large family. He is survived by his children Matthew and Amy Herrera, his brothers and sisters Linda, Irma, Evelia, Herman, Juan, and Raquel along with many other close family members.
Tony lived between Sherman Oaks and Burbank, California until his son, Matthew, was born before moving to Lake Oswego, Oregon where his daughter, Amy, was born. After moving to Lake Oswego he eventaully started his own construction and insulation business. He hoped to build a life he could pass on to his children through his dedication so that they wouldn't have to work as hard as he did. His friends and family were the most important things to him.
Tony loved his loyal friend, Max(The Dog), fixing cars, fishing, family, road trips, and being outdoors at the beach or redwood forests. He was fascinated by far places and outter space. He was always happy and excited by even the smallest things in life. Fun and easy going even in the toughest times, he never dwelt on the negative and put anyone and eveyone before himself, even strangers. It's impossible to summerize his life or the joy he brought to others in these statements.
Tony did everything the right and fair way and is greatly loved and missed by his many, many family members and friends. There's an irreplaceable spot in everyone's heart for him and Max, his constant companion. His children will continue to carry on and live as he taught them.
As his family, we don't feel that it's right to use the money he'd worked so hard for to pay for his own funeral so we started a GoFundMe account. If you'd like to contribute to the memory of this great man and his friend Max anything is welcome. https://www.gofundme.com/eb4xf-help-with-funeral-cost
