Cemetery Burials


Armando Tijerina Sr.

Armando Tijerina, Sr.


Armando Tijerina Sr. unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, January 6, 2018.

He was born on October 27, 1950, in Chihuahua, Mexico. Our husband, father, brother, grandpa and best friend, the man with a heart the size of his right bicep, will live forever in our hearts.

He lived a life of service, always putting other’s needs ahead of his own. If you came across him, chances are he gave you his shoes or the shirt off his back.

We loved him just the way he was and he loved us just the way we are. Our hearts are broken. The glue that kept our family together has left and the family’s mighty leader’s shoes will be hard to fill.

Never was there a greater “Jefe.” We will rebuild, we will live the kind of lives needed to be worthy to see him again.

He is preceded in death by his father, Delfino Tijerina, and his mother, Maria Galindo.

He is survived by his loving wife, Blanca Gandarilla Tijerina; 3 children: Marta Tijerina, Armando Tijerina Jr. (Cari) and Tyson Tijerina (Olivia); and 10 grandchildren who adored him: Andi, Jaxon, Braydon, Collin, Miya, Bella, Gabe, Alexis, Max and Liam.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at the Berg Drawing Room Chapel, 185 East Center Street, Provo, Utah. Friends may call Monday, January 15 from 6-7:30 p.m. and Tuesday from 1-1:50 p.m. prior to services. Interment, Provo City Cemetery. Condolences may be expressed on www.bergmortuary.com

Donations appreciated in lieu of flowers.
