At the age of 17, Antonio joined the United States Marine Corps; where he remained active for 21 years, 5 months and 28 days; and retired an E-8 Master Sergeant, in 1975.

On November 30, 2019, they were married 64 years. Antonio adored his wife – Maria Elena and wanted nothing more than for her to be taken care of. Antonio has 3 children: Leticia A.

Antonio loved his doggies; especially his Buffy, Rocky, Nikko and Lola (Lalo). Antonio was affiliated with various charitable organizations (too many to name); and he could not be stopped from giving! He was passionate about politics, reading, still loved the Sunday Comics and the Dallas Cowboys. Our dad lived his life by the “Golden Rule” and we proudly bury him with full military honors. Daddy, we love you.

Mama, Letty, Noni and Boo Boo
