Dad enjoyed making his friends and family laugh with his jokes. His favorite game shows were Wheel of Fortune, Let's Make a Deal and Jeopardy.

His favorite Movies were The God Father, Warriors, Public Enemy and Tombstone.

His favorite TV shows were Gold Rush, Swamp People, Seal Team, Survivor, Carbonaro Effect and Joel Olsteen on Sundays.

His favorite football team was the Oakland Raiders, loved watching Golf, Boxing and some Basketball. Our dad's love of sports transitioned to his children. It all started by taking his daughters to wrestling matches. Dad was lucky while playing Texas Lottery and scratch offs.

On the weekends he enjoyed having breakfast tacos and coffee with his best friend Benny at Tommy's restaurant on Nogalitos. Dad also spent time at his neighborhood Picnic Food Mart since he had become good friends with the owners Sabul and Sonny.

Dad enjoyed weekend visits from his companion Maria and her daughter Rosemary. They watched various cable network shows and enjoyed each other's company for many years.

Dad mainly loved Mexican food. His children loved his home cooked Chili, Menudo and Caldo.

Our dad was the happiest just knowing his children were happy.
