For 32 years Primitivo has been a loyal employee of Ivanhoe Blueberry Farms. One of his greatest joys in life was working.
Primitivo was a loving husband, daddy, granddaddy, brother, uncle, cousin who took wonderfully good care of his family. He enjoyed attending rodeos and family gatherings. His kind spirit, gentle smile and spontaneous laughter will always be remembered. Primitivo’s passing leaves a big hole in our family circle

Sherry,and girls, extended family members. Frankie and myself are so vary sorry to learn of Primmie's passing. Its always said that our good lord doesn't guarantee us tomorrow, never have those sentiments been more true. To me, the times I spent with Primmie was of friendship and admiration. Me and Frankie would often speak of the love he had for his family, and his loyalty towards his girls. Although our paths didn't cross all that often, and our heritages and lives were from different parts of the world. Primmie had the ability to bridge the gaps between people of different cultures. He always made us feel welcome with a contagious smile that excuberrated the soul of a great man. Primmie will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. Please accept our deepest condolences, and our prayers will continue to be sent your way throughout the difficult days and times ahead.
