Guillermo “Momo” Herrera Jr, 84, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday June 25, 2022, surrounded by his cherished family. Even in his last moments, his strength and loving heart left a beacon of light for all that knew him.

Momo was born in Van Horn, Texas in 1938 to Guillermo and Lorenza Herrera. The eldest son of a tight knit family, Momo was encouraged to succeed and showed an early talent for many things, especially football. He was known as “Mr. Football” at Van Horn High School. Often his athletic achievements were highlighted in the local newspaper. Momo recruited by Northern Arizona University (NAU) and was a key part of the “Chihuahua Backfield.” He retired from Texas Department of Transportation. He was happiest in the company of his family. Guillermo had a unique spirit. His zest for life and growth were incomparable.

Guillermo “Bill” survived by the love of his life and wife of 56 years, Julia F Herrera. Also survived by two siblings Ricardo Herrera and Grace Herrera, his children, Guillermo Herrera III and Aladina Overstreet, his honorary daughters, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He was a beloved husband, brother, Dad, Granddad, great granddad, Nino, Tio and friend. His humor and bright smile will be missed.
