Obituary for Andres D. Medina Jr.

Andres Medina Jr passed away peacefully on January 24 in his home surrounded by his family. He just turned 82 years old weeks prior.

Andres is survived by his wife, Fely, children, Melissa Medina, Michael Medina (Hang) of Simi Valley and Glenn Medina (Rosalee) of Vacaville, grandchildren: Andrew, Christopher, Rienne, Harlee, Tristen, Kylie, Cyra, Lucas and Jaeden. Andres is also survived by his brother Delfin Medina and sister Angelita Tuazon and Alex Medina. He was preceded in death by his brother Pedro Medina and sister Clarita Frani.

Andres’ military career in the United States Navy spanned 20+ years beginning in a base in Key West Florida. He also served at Pearl Harbor Hawaii, Concord Naval Weapons Station Concord. His most notable time was spent on the USS Enterprise where he served as the Master at Arms. He retired in 1988.

After his military career, Andres embarked on a second career as a dietician at the Napa State Hospital where he helped outline patients’ meals. He worked there until his retirement in 2003.

After his retirement from the hospital, Andres was not satisfied with just tending to his garden. He always had a dream to open his own Filipino deli/bakery. With the help of his wife, Fely, his dream became reality in 2006 when he opened Fil-Am Bakery in Sacramento. His genuine love of feeding people became his new passion. Sadly, he had to sell the bakery in 2008 due to health conditions that made it impossible for him to oversee the day-to-day business. Andres received a kidney transplant in 2015 and successfully adjusted to life as a donor recipient. He and his wife decided to move from Sacramento to Vacaville to be closer to his son, Glenn.

Funeral services will be held on February 14 at St. Joseph Catholic Church Vacaville and immediately followed by a burial with military honors at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon, California.
