He was a respected and charastmatic elder in the Mexican Community. Known for his generosity, he always gave help to anyone in need, regardless of race.

His language barrier was nothing more than a challenge, one of many he overcame. He did not take no for an answer and loved a challenge. He loved his animals, gardening, fishing and the Raiders.
Most of all he will be remembered for his unquestionable dedication to his family, as well as his teaching-duty bound by blood, embracing a challenge, taking the opportunity to prove oneself, and always bettering oneself, and remember ones humble beginnings.
