Filiberto Serna, 78, has come to his rest in the presence of our Lord on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.
Mr. Serna was an exemplary dedicated husband, father, grandfather and a true servant of God who loved and served the Lord with all his being. Mr. Serna proudly served his country in the Air Force in the 552nd FM Squad. He loved working on his ranch using his tractor and working with his hands. He enjoyed going to the ranch with his childhood friend Andy Ramos and his good friend Rudy Lerma.
Mr. Serna was an award-winning Barber who studied in Chicago, ILL. Then he started to work with Adolfo’s Barbershop. Soon after, he opened his own shop with his friend and partner, Rudy and Filiberto’s Barber Shop, for over 25 years.
In 1987, Filiberto and his wife started Border Beauty Supply, where he loved working alongside Susana every single day, not ever missing a day of work. He was a very hardworking man. Filiberto was lovingly called “El Sir” by his employees, friends, and family.
He truly appreciated the business advice he received from his close friends, Moy and Henry Goldberg.
Filiberto was an avid reader who was always eager to gain more knowledge.
He also enjoyed taking morning walks in historic downtown Laredo.
Filiberto was a Coca-Cola connoisseur, loved playing his guitar, and most importantly, he was a man who adored spending all of his time with his loving family.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 38 years of marriage, Susana Serna; children Susie Laurel, Joshua Serna, Filiberto Jr., Marco, Daniel, Michelle and Ricardo; granddaughter Leila Graham; siblings, Apolonio Serna, Jose Serna, Homero (Rachel) Serna, Amanda (Carlos) Torres and Hector (Laura) Serna, nieces, nephews, relatives, grandchildren and friends.
