Lorenzo R Berumen Sr, passed away on January 27, 2021, having just recently celebrated his 75th birthday.
Born and raised in Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, Lorenzo was the youngest child born to Jose Abigael and Santos Roman. Lorenzo spent 2 years with the US Armed Forces, stationed in Fort Bliss, Texas and Fort Collins, Colorado, and later worked for the Coca-Cola Bottling Company as a truck driver and salesman.
He met his wife, Leonor Rivera, in her hometown of Douglas, AZ and they married in 1969. They moved to the tri-community, settling down in Oracle, AZ in 1979. Lorenzo worked for the Magma Copper Mine for 30 years. Upon its closure, he received an education at Pima Community College and went on to work for Tucson Electric Company for 11 years, retiring in 2010.
Lorenzo enjoyed sports, coached little league and umpired for several years, was a loyal Dallas Cowboys fan, enjoyed hunting and the outdoors. He was often fixing things around the house, had a knack for painting and making others laugh, and loved being a Tata. While he was a man of few words, Lorenzo had many profound moments over his last days.
