Jaime Fernandez

April 26, 1941 — January 21, 2017

Jaime Fernandez, 75, of Meadows of Dan, VA, died on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at Pioneer Community Hospital. He was born April 26, 1941 to the late Noemi Frausto and Arnulfo Fernandez Sr., in Agujitas, Sabinas, Coahuila, Mexico. The family migrated to the U.S. in 1955 as farmworkers, first arriving in Dousman, Wisconsin, then Des Plaines, Illinois, and eventually settling in Chicago.
