Fermin lived in Abernathy off and on for 35 years, but always found Abernathy to be home. He enjoyed getting to be on stage and playing his bass guitar. Fermin loved the outdoors, especially camping, being at the lake and bar-be-queing. He enjoyed the challenge found in a game of pool. He loved his family, but his real joy was being with his children and grandchildren.
