It is with great sadness we announce the passing of, JACOBO MICHAEL MAESTAS, 62, a resident of Hernandez. Michael was welcomed into the loving arms of Jesus on Wednesday, October 14, 2020. He enjoyed spending time with his family and grandchildren. Michael was an avid Broncos fan. He had a passion for hunting, fishing, and visiting with friends at the casino. His incredible sense of humor brought many smiles to the faces around him. He worked as a labor, carpenter and enjoyed mechanics with his sons. Michael was always ready to support his family with anything that would arise, from building bunny sheds to driving miles to change a flat tire. He would always say, “I love you” instead of good-bye.
