Jeronimo Laureano De La Cruz

September 30, 1942 — January 30, 2024

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Jeronimo Laureano De La Cruz. “Don Jero” was born September 30, 1942, and passed away on January 30, 2024, after a lengthy illness surrounded by his children and grandchildren.


Jeronimo was raised in Tenamaxtlan, Jalisco and became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 2005, an accomplishment he was ecstatic about. As a young man he would run races against area horses, defeating the four-legged beast in a sprint to the finish line much to the delight of the locals in town and his running skills have been passed down to his future generations.

He enjoyed watching his sons compete in soccer matches, dancing, listening to rancheras and corridos, attending concert performances and rodeos, tending to his rose garden, painting, barbequing, eating Mexican Food, and raising chickens and roosters.

Jeronimo is survived by his wife Matilde, sons José Luís and wife Yolanda, Jeronimo, Jesús, Cuauhtémoc and wife Lucero, Rafael and wife Viviana and daughters Rosa, and María and husband Michael. He was a loving grandfather to 26 grandchildren and blessed with 8 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Irma and son, Juan.

A rosary service will be held at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, February 21st at Perez Family Funeral Home, 600 Central Ave. in Fillmore. The funeral mass will be held on Thursday, February 22nd, at 10:00 am at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 1048 Ventura St. in Fillmore, with graveside services to immediately follow at Bardsdale Cemetery, 1698 S. Sespe St. in Fillmore.

            Friends and family are invited to pay their respects.
