On March 12 th 2014 the love of his life Beatriz passed away. Although they were no longer together they remained close friends who always looked out for each other. Soon after her passing he began to experience health issues. In 2015 he became a permanent resident of Tracy California to be closer to his children and grandchildren. Even though his health was declining he never stop trying to work and nothing could stop him from being at all the family functions and events. He adored and loved his family and made it a point to always be present.

His hilarious stories and charismatic ways will be dearly missed by all of those he touched. His passion for God ,life ,family,and work will not be matched …yet will be missed remembered forever!
