Julio had a huge impact on my life. He represented loyalty, honor, commitment, and joy. I’ll miss his unconditional love and dry-witted sense of humor. Rest In Peace, Julio!

I had the pleasure of working with Julio during the time that he worked for The American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program, Inc. We were not only co-workers but also good friends. We used to travel to visit our office sites and also with the replica of the Viet Nam Memorial wherever it would be on display. Julio remained a good friend after he left the American GI Forum and he would always call me just to see how I was doing.
He will truly be missed and I know that he is now in a better place.
RIP my friend.

Julio has left many memories to all whom he has love. Julio may be gone but his memories live on in each and everyone he has touched. When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. One day we will all meet again.
