Lucio A. Herrera

Lucio Antonio Herrera passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Friday, August 19, 2022.  He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War– Tet Offense.  A proud member of Second Platoon, C Troop, 3/4 CAV, 25th Infantry Division, survivor of Tan Son Nhut and Hoc Mon One, and Hoc Mon Two; a loyal friend and dedicated American, who received two Purple Hearts and the Bronze Star.  Returning from Vietnam in September of 1968, he began his career with Central Power & Light, now AEP, and retired after 33 years of service.  Lucio was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. A man of great integrity and wit; however, if he ever offended anyone, it was his unique way of showing his love for you.  Lucio was known as an outdoorsman and enjoyed fishing, hunting, bbq, and fish fries; however, Sundays were reserved for the Dallas Cowboys.

A man of many trades, Lucio proudly built each home his family lived in with his bare hands.  God truly broke the mold when he made Lucio.  He was a man worthy of respect, a joy to be around, and worth remembering. He will be immensely missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Lucio Cristobal and Presciliana Lilia Herrera; in-laws, Emilio and Paula Perez; nephew, Eddie Ray Gomez; and niece, Ana Marie Gomez.
