Abraham (Abe) Eli Bruce Wise–Hermosillo


Abraham was born October 24, 1980, to parents Cloverdale Pomo Ricardo (Rick) Hermosillo and Sheryl Wise.

He died suddenly on June 17, 2023, at the age of 42 in Ukiah, California after suffering a heart attack.

Abraham will be greatly missed by friends and family.

He is survived by his mother, Sheryl Wise, of Cotati, California; his stepfather, Rick Lewellyn of Eugene, Oregon, and siblings, sister Elizabeth Hermosillo, of Ukiah, California, and her children, Marcos, Alexandria, Adriana, twins Anthony and Catori, and twins Jazmine and Violet; sister Jaimie Lewellyn, of Salem, Oregon, and her child, Margaret, and by his grandfathers John Wise of Medford, Oregon and Del Lewellyn of Salem, Oregon.

Abraham is predeceased by his father Rick Hermosillo of Cloverdale, California and grandmothers Blanche Knight Hermosillo of Cloverdale, California, Louise Burke of Medford, Oregon and Peggy Lewellyn of Salem, Oregon.

Abe is also predeceased by his four-legged best friends, Scotty and Kilo, and leaves behind Loomis.

Abraham was raised in Cloverdale, California and Eugene, Oregon.

Abe was an avid fisherman and hunter. Abe got his passion for fishing after catching two huge fish in the ocean at the age of 9 and never looked back.  He also loved diving for abalone and angling for steelhead and salmon. His favorite place was to be in a drift boat fishing for steelhead.

He learned to hunt on the Lewellyn Ranch in Eastern Oregon where he spent every hunting season hunting elk and deer.

Abraham had an affinity for gardening. He loved to cook for and feed anyone he loved. Abe was a jokester and loved to make people laugh, always with a big smile on his face.

By the age of 13, Abraham knew he never wanted to work under a roof. He was taught the skills of construction by his stepfather, Rick, and utilized those skills, becoming a successful contractor.  One of his crowning achievements being the design and construction of a beautiful tiny home as well as several cabins on the ranch.

Abraham also enjoyed teaching his nephew, Marcos, building skills.

Abraham lived by the philosophy that we only have today and he never let you leave him or get off the phone without telling you he loved you.




We only have today.
