Obituary


Max Ferrero Garcia, 91, passed away on December 31, 2017, because of complications from a stroke he suffered exactly one year earlier, on December 31, 2016. (As Max would probably have said, "I bookended it.") Max was alert and in good spirits despite the stroke and remained a fighter to the end. Max was born on February 26, 1926 in El Paso, Texas, the eldest of five children. The family settled in the Delano area in 1928. Max attended Richgrove Elementary and Delano High School. He served in the Navy during World War II.

Max Ferrero Garcia, 91, passed away on December 31, 2017, because of complications from a stroke he suffered exactly one year earlier, on December 31, 2016. (As Max would probably have said, "I bookended it.") Max was alert and in good spirits despite the stroke and remained a fighter to the end. Max was born on February 26, 1926 in El Paso, Texas, the eldest of five children. The family settled in the Delano area in 1928. Max attended Richgrove Elementary and Delano High School. He served in the Navy during World War II.

Max worked for the Co-Op and Perelli-Minnetti Wineries, and later for Delano Growers Grape Products. Max spent around 50 years in the grape and wine industries. Max had a great sense of humor and enjoyed concerts, sports, gardening, and his family. He survived his parents, Martin and Teresa, a brother, Johnny, and a sister, Margaret. He is survived by his daughter, Martha, and sons, Jerry (his wife, Elyse, and their daughters, Elizabeth and Rachel), Fred, and Paul. He is also survived by a brother Albert (Tito), and sister, Alice, and the families of his brothers and sisters. (We would tell you who they are but we lost count a long time ago.) Martha and Paul were especially helpful during the time Max suffered from the stroke and they wish to thank other family members, Max's many friends, and the staff of the Blue Pearl Home for their kindness and support.
