On Wednesday, January 1, 2020, Macario Herrera, Sr., age 72, surrounded by his loved ones, went peacefully to be with the Lord at his forever home, united with his wife in glory land. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
He was born on February 28, 1947, in O’Donnell, Texas, to Guadalupe and Dominga (Hernandez) Herrera. He was united in marriage to Belinda Hojdea. She preceded him in death on October 26, 2019. Macario was a pastor, father, husband and friend. He was a mighty man of God who for many years was pastor of the House of Prayer in Comanche. He loved beyond measure and was a strong man who never gave up on life. Macario fought until the end and showed us strength, love and, most of all, how we can’t live this life without God. He will forever be in our hearts.
