Miguel Oscar Fernandez (1973-2019)


Miguel Oscar Fernandez of Colusa passed away on April 3, 2019. He was born in California on January 25, 1973 to Miguel and Maria Fernandez.

Oscar enjoyed nature, exercise, going to the movies, and eating – especially his mom’s cooking. He was the first in his family to graduate from college, completing a degree in History at UC Berkeley. He had a big heart, a creative spirit that expressed itself in his drawings, a natural curiosity, and larger-than-average ears. Oscar was a 49ers fan, and an avid reader and tinkerer. He was most proud of being a dad and found joy through his daughters.

Oscar is survived by his daughters, Juliet and Emilia Fernandez; parents, Miguel and Maria Fernandez of Sacramento; and sisters, Mayra Covarrubias and Haley Fernandez of Sacramento and Sonia Fernandez of San Francisco. He also had numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews throughout California and beyond.
