Fernando passed away on July 6th, 2021 at the age of 23. He was a beloved son to his parents, Maria Higareda and, Fernando Amaya. He was a beloved brother to his siblings, Miguel Pineda, and sister Monse Amaya. He was a loving uncle to Valentin Amaya.

Fernando was such a hard-working man who had a bright future ahead of him, but was taken too soon. He was very protective over his family; he would have given his life for each and every one of them if it came down to it.

Fernando’s friends described him as a loyal friend, he always had their back. He was the life of the party. As soon as he walked into a room, he would make people laugh and bring joy to anyone who ever met him. Friends like Fernando don’t come around often, and he will be dearly missed.
