"The music of your life will be missed"

Born September 16, 1931 in San Miguel, New Mexico, to Elias and Guadalupe (Lupita) Atencio Miera.

His life was filled with friends, family and music.

Fermin came to Salt Lake City in 1946 from San Miguel, New Mexico where he began work for the Portland Cement company as a heavy equipment operator and remained there for the next 34 years until his retirement in 1981.

Fermin was an avid fisherman and loved to spend his weekends in the Uintah Mountain lakes and rivers with friends and relatives. He loved the outdoors and spending time with his children and grandchildren. One of his greatest joys was his music, he could play any instrument that was placed in front of him and for many years played with several local bands professionally. You are loved will be missed. Heaven awaits your arrival Dad.
