On January 30, 1948, Martin Adame Herrera (Daddytin) was born to Sixto and Felicita (Adame) Herrera in San Perlita, TX. He married Elvira Rodriguez on November 16, 1964. He then moved to Brownfield in 1968 and started working for Brownfield Seed & Delenting, and became a farmer, where he dedicated his life to provide for his family. He built the place from the ground up, from the deleting machines, to the warehouses, harvested cotton, milo, wheat, black eyes, pinto beans, sorghum. Many farmers trusted Daddytin with their seed. He was a well-known, loyal man of his word; trustworthy. He received the Terry County Farmer Award in 2015. Daddytin loved his family. Every Spring Break, summer, and Christmas vacation, off we went to the south; Poteet and San Perlita were his comfort. He never left behind strawberries from his niece’s farm, or Chile de Monté he would pick from his mom’s tree, to the valley lemons he would stop and buy on the side of the road. Visiting Progresso, Mexico and San Juan Virgencita, and South Padre Island was a must on his trips. We definitely can’t forget about his stops in Mason for some good old BBQ. Daddytin took care of lots of people including migrant workers needing a job and place to stay. He was even a sponsor for several to receive their citizenship. He made sure his baby sister, nieces and nephews, his grandchildren, and the two babies he recently had at home were all well. Daddytin loved his wife, Elvira. She was the only Queen which existed in his world. She never went without. He always made everything happen for her. At family gatherings, Momma and Daddy always stole the show; her with her sparkly dresses and him with his crocodile Stacy Adams, which he had a closet full. He loved to go to the movies and dance with her, whether at a family gathering or right in his living room. He never went without making her feel special. Those two were definitely made for each other. God definitely spent a little more time on those two. Daddytin loved all his siblings, but he especially loved spending time and taking trips with his brother Donce. Those two would jump in the truck, take off to Washington State and head back with a trailer full of apples and memories to last a lifetime. Daddytin made sure everyone was going to be okay until his last day. He was always so humble, generous, and in control of every situation. He always kept his word. Daddytin will definitely be missed by many; he just couldn’t live without Elvira, where they are both now dancing in heaven.

Survivors include his children, Anita Jimenez, Roberto (Teresa) Herrera, Nora (Martin) Rodriguez, Misty Morin, and Sixto Herrera; eight grandchildren, Christina Cox, Dolores Acevedo, Briana Herrera, Nathaniel Herrera, Jotham Rodriguez, and Martin Rodriguiez, Jr.; seven great-grandchildren; and siblings, Abdon Herrera, Ernestina Briones, Eduvina Herrera, and Diana Yanez.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Elvira Herrera; son, Daniel Herrera; daughter, Dolores Herrera; sisters, Celia Silva and Francisca Gomez; brother, Teodore Herrera; and son-in-law, Larry Jimenez.
