Fidel Partida Sr. Obituary

On January 03, 2024, Fidel Morales Partida, 82, of Sunnyside, WA, passed away peacefully, quietly, and surrounded by loved ones. Fidel was born on April 23, 1941 to Leopaldo and Irene Morales Partida in Edinburg, Texas. Fidel was a proud Texan, he was a hard worker and took pride in his strong work ethic. Fidel began working in the fields of Texas and did the same when he moved to Washington state in his 20’s. Fidel married Mary Robles Partida in 1963, and they started their family in 1964. Together, they raised 8 children, Anita, Fidel Jr., Roel, Danny, Raul, Michael, Ida, and Dolores, 29 grandchildren (including 4 fur-babies), and 33 great grandchildren. According to his wife their marriage was like a rosebush, occasional thorns but very happy. They did their best to raise their family with love, peace, joy, and compassion in mind. Fidel’s strong work ethic laid the foundation for the same in all of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Fidel was always on the go. When he wasn’t, he was at home with his family tending to his collection of CB radios, watching his favorite Western movies, or working on his yard. His yard
was green and pristine and if yours wasn’t, he was working on it. Toward his final years, Fidel walked to and from church every Sunday morning until he was no longer able to. His unwavering, re-commitment to faith didn’t go unnoticed. Fidel was a private, quiet man, but make no mistake, he had a big heart, a beautiful smile, and he loved his family.
Fidel was preceded in death by his sons, Fidel Partida Jr., Michael Partida, and son-in-law Frank B. Zamarron. He is survived by wife Mary Robles Partida, Anita (Lorenzo), Roel (Esthela), Danny, Raul, Ida, and Dolores (Mike), numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Thank you for all the beautiful years Grandpa, until we see you again. Undertaker, Border Jumper - Over and out.
