CASA GRANDE — Federico Siriaco "Fred" Hidalgo Sr., 59, of Casa Grande died on Jan. 4, 2021, at home.

Mr. Hidalgo spent his free time making memories with his family, and he treated close friends as family. He had no casual friends. He wanted his family to be united and hated division. He wanted the young to remember the elders within the family. His Little League fastball pitch is a legend.

He hated to see grandparents left out or forgotten. He wanted the kids to understand the importance of having family parties and gatherings to strengthen their bond. He was about honoring elders.

He is survived by his partner, Esther Apodaca; two sons, Federico S. Hidalgo Jr. and Mark Apodaca; a brother, Lorenzo Hidalgo Sr.; a sister, Lucia Hidalgo; and several grandchildren, including a new grandson.

Viewing beginning at 9 a.m. on Jan. 23 at Apostolic Tabernacle. Graveside service following.

J. Warren Funeral Services in charge of arrangements.
