Mingo served in the United States Navy for four years, right after graduation from Devine High School. He came back to Devine and worked for Graham Tin and Plumbing for over 20 years before he started his own plumbing business in 1984. His brother Onofre, Jr. joined him, and has worked for him ever since. In his younger days, Mingo enjoyed going hunting, when he had the chance. He loved plants, and always had a garden up until about a year ago, sharing his many vegetables. Mingo even tried his hand at “hydroponics” with his tomato plants using his own hand-built set-up, which worked pretty good. (This was before they came out with all the marketing items.) He really liked trying his own ideas.
A visitation for family and friends will begin at 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 18, 2023. The Rosary will be recited at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel of the Primrose Funeral Home, Devine. A Celebration Mass will be held at 10:00 a.m. in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Devine on Friday, May 19th. Interment will follow at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Devine.
Maria and Onofre, and especially Mingo, would like to thank the community for all their support for the past 9 months, but especially since Herrera Plumbing opened in 1984. They plan to continue the business into the future.
