Fernando “Fernie” Gilberto Sosa, 49, of Brownsville, Texas, devoted son, father, uncle, brother, and friend, entered into eternal rest on June 27, 2018. He was born in Brownsville, Texas on December 11, 1968.
He is preceded in death by his father Emilio Sosa; beloved niece Rebecca Solis and his aunt Norma Silva. Left to cherish his memory is his mother Ofelia Sosa; daughter Natasha Nicole Sosa, stepson Miguel Hernandez; sister Ana Mae (George) Solis, brother Emilio (Melissa) Sosa Jr., niece Samantha Solis; nephews Matthew Solis, Emilio III, Sebastian, and Sergio Sosa. Also surviving numerous aunts, uncles, and extended family members.
Fernando, known as Fernie to those who loved and knew him best, had many diverse interests. He enjoyed preparing delicious meals that came from the heart for his friends and family, especially barbeque. Even if he didn’t know you, it was ok; you were always welcomed. He could often be found with his guitar in hand jamming out to his favorite songs-an endless playlist of classic rock. He also enjoyed working outdoors, meticulously beautifying landscapes for his family and clients. But most of all, Fernie loved his family, friends, and his ever-faithful Duchess. He wore his heart on his sleeve, letting those around him know how much he cared. His warm hugs and bright smile will be missed.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, June 30, 2018 at Sunset Memorial Funeral Home & Crematory from 2:00 to 9 p.m. with a prayer service at 7:00 p.m. Services will conclude at the end of the evening.
