Phillip John Fernandez


Phillip, lovingly nicknamed “Buzzy” by his Aunty Cassie, was born into the world April 22, 1966, to Esequiel and Charlene Fernandez, in Los Angeles, California. He grew up in Bakersfield, CA, where he graduated from Foothill High School. He then attended the University of La Verne. Soon after, he went on to study at California State University Dominguez Hills and earned a bachelor's degree in sociology. He loved playing football and rooting for his favorite team, The Cowboys. He loved to cook and would often feed the homeless and help others in need.  “Buzzy” would spend time with his friends djaying, sharing his dream of creating and producing music.He was a genuine friend to all. One of his favorite quotes: “No man is an island who has friends.” He was hired to work at Rio Counseling Center by Able Fernandez, where he helped people work through their traumas. 

Phillip is survived by his children Marisa Rose Fernandez and Alyssa Fernandez, his mother, Charlene Fernandez, sister Margarita Medrano, brother Cruz Fernandez and numerous uncles, aunts and cousins. He will be greatly missed by ALL.

Such a humbling experience to have known Phil. I will truly miss the friendship we shared over the 30 years I have known him. I can't appreciate enough the positive influence he had on my life. Truly a remarkable man that was so generous.
