Our grandfather was a true hero. After serving two tours in the Korean War he returned home to serve his Lord. He started a family with a beautiful woman (Isabel Argumaniz) and had five children. He then became ordained as a Deacon in the Catholic Church where he served actively for 32 years. After a spinal cord surgery that left him paralyzed, he adjusted to living his last seven years in a power chair. He continued to serve his family and church despite his disability.

The Lord called him home yesterday, Sunday February 3rd. He is survived by his wife, 5 kids, 14 grand children, 23 great grand children, 6 brothers & 2 sisters. He will be greatly missed but we know he will be dancing in heaven! We love you papo!

    In honor of my “gentle giant”, you always loved each one of your children equally. We each had our unique ways of doing things and you, along with our beautiful mother, always supported us. I remember listening to you give a sermon at Mass and always being in awe that the church was completely silent while you spoke. I love you daddy.
