David Enrique “Ricky” Mendez Hernandez, 25, of Gonzales, passed away Sunday, January 26, 2020. Ricky was born on February 15, 1994 to Jeanette Mendez and David Mendoza Hernandez in Bexar County, Texas.

Ricky enjoyed life beyond measure. He lived abundantly whether he was watching or playing basketball, playing video games, cooking, and eating anything and everything. Ricky loved to travel alongside his girlfriend, Adriana. The two thrived on adventure, proving that by their recent trip hiking in New Mexico. However, they cherished the simple things as well. They were often spending their days shopping or out of town, but generally ending the day eating at their favorite place, Whataburger. Ricky enjoyed nature and all the beauty he found in God’s magnificent creation. He found peace in natures majesty. Ricky loved humor and frequently shared his quick and funny wit. Poet Robert Frost wrote, “A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom.” Ricky knew this very well, for he lived his all too short life with delight, and in the end, he was wise beyond his years.

Ricky was survived by his adoring girlfriend, Adriana Gloria of Gonzales, sister, Samantha Nicole Mendez of Nixon, and twin brother, Alexander Joshua Mendez Hernandez and wife Purple of Midland. He was preceded in death by his mother. The family will receive friends from 3 until 4 p.m. on Friday, January 31, 2020 in Seydler-Hill Funeral Home. A graveside service will follow at 4:30 p.m. in the St. James Cemetery, with Deacon Terry Brennan officiating. Pallbearers include: Alexander Hernandez, Adan Cabrera, Damian Perez, Marcus Fitzhugh, Greg Cabrera, Salomon Almaguer III, Boris Perdomo, and Robert Juarez. Friends may leave their condolences by visiting Services are under the care and direction of Seydler-Hill Funeral Home, Gonzales.
