Michael Hernandez

July 17, 1984 — October 26, 2021

Michael J. Hernandez passed away on October 26, 2021. He was born on July 17, 1984 in Pocatello Idaho.

He attended Syringa E.S., Alameda Jr. High, Century H.S and graduated from Green Valley H.S. in Henderson Nevada. Michael was a part of the first class to attend Century H.S. after it was built in 1999.

Michael’s job in construction took him to several states including Nevada, California, Wisconsin and Kansas. He eventually moved back to Pocatello and worked at ATCO.

Michael had many hobbies and interests he enjoyed. Fishing and boating with his daughter Brooklyn was an activity they loved being able to do together. He was a Die-Hard Raiders fan and followed the Lakers and Dodgers. He was active in basketball, baseball, football and soccer starting in pre-k.

During his free time he liked to listen to music, play and collect Magic cards, and was interested in history and ufology.
Michael had a witty personality and could always make people laugh. He would help anyone who needed it without reservation. He loved spending time with his family and friends, especially during family gatherings and camping.
Nothing made him prouder than being a father. Brooklyn was his entire world and he did everything in his power to make her happy and ensure that she knew how much he loved her.
