Atilano V. “Wero” Medrano Jr.

Quincy, WA

Atilano V. “Wero” Medrano Jr., 54, of Quincy, WA, beloved husband and best friend of Maria D. (Casarez) Medrano, 54, was suddenly called home to his Heavenly Father on the evening of June 19, 2013, at his farm, surrounded by the ones he loved, laughed with, lived for. Wero was born in Edcouch, TX on July 28, 1958, to Atilano Medrano Sr. and Amada (Villarreal) Medrano, 82. At a very young age, he moved with his family to the Quincy Valley. On July 15, 1978, Wero married the love of his life, Maria, in O’Donnell, TX. The young couple settled in Quincy, WA, where they raised their three children, Miranda V. (Medrano) Jackson, 33; Monica M. Medrano, 32; and Justin E. Medrano, 28. Wero and Maria shared 34 years of marriage.

Wero is survived by his wife, Maria; his three children, Miranda, Monica and Justin; his mother, Amada; granddaughter, Armonie M. Jackson, 10; his brothers, Estevan Medrano, 62 (Dora), Noe Medrano, 60, Ruben Medrano, 59, and Javier Medrano, 42 (Stephanie); sisters, Rosalinda Garces, 57, Maria Garza, 51 (Arnold), Diana Martinez, 49 (Refugio) and Sonia Arizmendi, 47 (Ricardo); 13 nephews and nieces; and six great-nephews and nieces; as well as numerous relatives from Washington to Texas and many, many treasured, lifelong friends. Wero was preceded in death by his sister, Nelda V. Medrano (1974); father, Atilano Medrano Sr. (1980); brother, Jose V. Medrano (2003); and son-in-law, Tyron L. Jackson (2010). Wero was anxiously and happily awaiting the arrival of his granddaughter, Makaio Mero Medrano, who will be arriving early July.

He graduated from Quincy High School in 1976. He was a jack of many trades, but spent the majority of his career as a Horticulture Senior Inspector for the Washington State Department of Agriculture. In his spare time, you could find Wero on his tractor working on his farm, out at the lakes fishing, road tripping with his wife through the Pacific Northwest, enjoying fun-filled family dinners with his children and grandchild or barbecuing with friends. Through and through, Wero’s infectious laugh and passion for life was present in all he did.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the members of the Quincy Valley/Grant County Emergency Response Team and the Grant County Sheriffs for their efforts and quality care. We thank God for the gift of his life and the blessing of the time we spent with him. Wero’s spirit will live on within us until we all meet again.

A “Celebration of Life” Service will be held honoring Wero on Wednesday, June 26, 2013, at The Faith Community Church, 1005 10th Avenue SW, Quincy, at 11:00 a.m. Pastor John Hardiman will be officiating. A dinner will take place at his farm following the services and, as a true representation of Wero’s big and vibrant personality, he requested that there be no “Gloom and Doom” on his day, therefore we ask that you come prepared to celebrate his life, his way. Scharbach’s Funeral Home in Quincy is taking care of all the arrangements.
