    Dr,Aguirre was the most humble person. I remember seeing him cleaning our break room. He was taking the full coffee containers
    out of the trash can and pouring the coffee into the sink and then throwing them back into the trash. I told him you know we have a
    cleaning crew..He replied he worked as a custodian, I think he said High School and hated when he would take out a trash bag and
    liquid would spill all over the floor. I was humbled myself by this and to this day I will never look at common courtesy as someone
    else’s job. He will be missed so much it was a pleasure to work for him.

      Dr. Aguirre will truly be missed. He was an excellent doctor full of humor and great patience. A humble man I had the privilege of knowing. Tears have been shed with a heart that aches for
      his departure from this world. Praying for comfort, healing and peace for his immediate family, his family at Mcgregor and all that knew him. God made a masterpiece.

    He was so compassionate and trustworthy.
    A brilliant physician but at the same time very easy to talk to.

    I miss him. I offer my deepest sympathy to his wife, the Aguirre family as well as the MacGregor family.

    He was definitely one if a kind.

    I’m so saddened by this news. I’d purchased an “Anniversary” card for Dr. Aguirre, thanking him for “our” 22 years together. The pandemic struck and the card never got sent. I discovered the found the card on Monday, May 11, and intended to take it to MacGregor this week. Sigh.

    He was a great guy and I had to remember he was my doctor during our visits…he was more like a friend helping me through the medical obstacles of life. If I miss him this much, I have an idea of how much his family, friends, and MacGregor peeps must feel. My condolences to all. Thank you, Dr. Aguirre.

    Dr Aguirre was my doctor for over 19 years! Always kind and patient, he made you feel like you were the only patient he had that day. When our daughter unexpectedly passed away and we had to take on the role of raising our 7 year old grandson in our mid 60s, he sat with me and just held my hand and talked. That personal caring meant so much.
    We also are neighbors and had many fun discussions about things in the area, and not so fun stuff like the hail storm of 2016 when we all sustained significant damage to our homes.
    Such a special guy, fantastic doctor, and sweet friend.
    Our deepest condolences to the family amd his Macgregor family. I will miss you always, fly free now!

    Dr. Fernando Aguirre, my doctor since McGregor Facilities opened, he was the best doctor I have ever had. I would go in his office crying and come out feeling 100% better and happy. I will forever cherish his motivational advice and kind words and his ways of making me feel at ease with his undivided attention and patience. May the Lord receive him with open arms, for I am sure he has earned his place in heaven and until we meet again, may the Lord provide peace strength and comfort to all his family, who were fortunate to be part of his life on this earth. My deepest condolences to his wife and family, thank you for sharing your dad/husband with so many people that needed him. God Bless You.

    Dr. Aguirre was my first real doctor. I always just used emergency clinics or the like when I got an injury and went on my way. I deal with what they call white coat syndrome and was very nervous when I first went to see him as a referral from a family member. He was so kind and understanding when talking to me. He didn’t make me feel bad in any way for not going to see doctors sooner, instead he formed a plan for me and just talked to me like he had known me for years. He kept me informed and put me at ease with the issues I was dealing with. Instantly he came off as a person who was just there to help others get better. I was so sorry to hear that he had left the practice and today I am shaken to learned he passed away. I wish I could have thanked him before he left the practice, but I thank him now for being there for all of us. May he rest in eternal glory with his ancestors, and may his family, friends, and coworkers find some peace in this time of mourning. Thank you Dr. Aguirre for everything you did in your time here.

    My sincere condolences to Dr. Aguirre’s family. Dr. Aguirre was a caring and easy to talk to physician. He was always so cheerful and always greeted me with a warm handshake and pat on the back and would say “how can I help you”…i miss him, cause I know he cared about me and my family….it’s hard to find a good caring doctor. Rest in peace Dr. Aguirre you served others so well…

    Dr. Aguirre was our family doctor for 20 years. He not only treated our medical ailments but took time to educate ((always had a good health book to share) and enjoyed talking about our hometowns in West Texas. He truly exemplified what a treating physician should be! I offer my my heartfelt condolences to his Aguirre family and MMC family. A rosary novena for his departed soul will be recited. May he Rest In Peace and May Perpetual Light Shine Upon him. Amen 🙏🏼😇❤️

    He had been our family doctor for a very long time. He was a great Dr. always had the best bed side manner, he was one of the few Dr.’s that actually listened and took his time with his Patients. He will be greatly missed.

    I am so sad to hear of his passing. 19 years ago he saved my life. I went in with a severe headache. In his calm reassuring way, he insisted I not go home, but rather see a friend of his who was a specialist. A neurosurgeon. I had a cranial aneurysm. Dr. Aguirre could have sent me home with migraine medications. He could have determined it was any number of things. I was blessed to have him as my doctor. He saved my life. I keep him and his family in my prayers. God Bless you Dr. Aguirre.

    I just learned of Dr. Aguirre’s passing and I can hardly type this. What an extraordinary person he was. I echo all of the comments made above by others. He was a warm, caring and thoughful person who really knew his patients. His skill as a medical professional and his ‘bedside’ manner in my opinion were without equal and always reminded me of the doctors of the past who took the time to truly care for the welfare of their patients rather than just rushing off to the next appointment. My heartfelt condolences to his family and rest assured he is with our Lord and saviour, Jesus Christ.

    My deepest sympathy and condelences to his family and McGregor family office. All the dress in this office are awesome. May he R.I.P.


    I am heart broken to hear this. One of the kindest, caring people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. He was my Dr for just shy of 20 years and saw me through several trying times. We always started our office visit with a brief discussion of his beloved Longhorns. He was a wonderful man and my heartfelt condolences go out to all his love ones.

    just heard the news of his passing. He was doctor for 25+years he said I was one of his first patient since graduating. He helped me with my cancer and always making sure I was taking care of myself. Always there to hear whatever you were going thorough life and provide answers. Will always be in my heart God Bless him!

    As a sit here and read all the heartfelt comments I am filled with an enormous sense of wonderment.at how many lives Dr.Fernando Aguirre touched. He was my physician for over fifteen years and, during that time, became a friend as well. I always felt I was somehow his “special:” patient to whom he listened patiently and advised gently. I see now that all his patients were special. for he possessed the grace and the humbleness of a true healer. I will miss you, Dr. Aguirre and to say your shoes will be hard to fill would be an understatement. Special prayers for your family, friends and all those you leave behind. The world will be a lesser place that you are gone. May you rest in gentle peace. .
