Bernardo “Lalo” Merino, age 75, went to be with the Lord on Friday, December 4, 2020 in Roswell. He was born on August 13, 1945 in Namiquipa, Chihuahua, Mexico to the home of Antonio and Maria Merino. Bernardo later married his wife Blanca on April 2, 1967.
Bernardo is preceded in death by his wife of 53 years; parents; sons Jorge and Francisco; brothers Pepe and Rafael and sister Carmela Dominguez.
Bernardo was a genuine family man. He was a hard worker who instilled those values in his boys. He spent his early years as an international truck driver and later worked as a welder/farmhand before retiring. Bernardo was an adventurous soul who enjoyed being outdoors spending countless hours working on various projects or inventions in his backyard. He will be missed for his strong-willed character, his humor, and his loving smile.
