Tio Guero is my definition of a great man,
For the longest of time he managed his and his dads household he went to work every day and went to his dads house every day to check on him and to make sure all was well he then went to his house to his wife and family.
As some of us complain that we have to go to visit our parents once a week or one a month he did it every day without hesitation and managed to keep a job be a husband to his wife a parent to his kids and a grandparent to his grandkids, since I first met him in 1988 I knew he was no ordinary man although not a big man he was strong and stern as a bull and looked at you in your eyes when he talked to you a quality very few have today.
my father in law looked up to his big brother and I know he will miss their weekly conversations more than anyone will ever know.
I was blessed to have known him I picked up a few pointers from him. Tio Guero you will be missed I hope today you’re dancing in the sky’s with your parents and sisters, I have much love and respect for you and always will.
To all the Hinojos Family my deepest condolences my heart is crying along with yours I am so sorry.

Grandpa since your passing we have already had many firsts without the man who we all could always count on to make us feel loved in only the way you and Grandma could. We have beautiful memories of you. Your smile and laugh were magical and will be cherished in our memories. You taught us that family is forever and exemplified what true faith in God should be. You were always committed to making each of us feel loved and showing us how important we were to you with your presence at special moments in our lives. You always treasured your family, and we treasure you and Grandma very much. Your huge presence in our lives makes losing you even more devastating as we continue on here on Earth without you reminiscing about the amazing man we all wish was still here. We rejoice in knowing that God welcomed you into His kingdom and we will all be with you again when each of us are called to eternal life. Until that time comes, each of us with carry on the family values that you and Grandma have taught us and pray that we continue to make you proud. The love we have for you goes beyond words. May God continue to bless you our dear Grandpa and Pande. Love always - Kathy, Charlie, Giana, and Marcelo

I have never felt loss like this before. My heart aches and selfishly yearns for you to still be here. You were suddenly taken away from us to reunite with God in heaven. I know you are at peace and this is God’s will but you are greatly missed and it has left a huge emptiness in our hearts. You and Grandma have built this wonderful family with strong roots. We all have a ton of love and respect for one another. We are helping each other grieve. We are having wonderful moments of memories, tears and stories of you and us. We know you took a fighting chance in an attempt to live longer for us here on earth but now you are living eternally in heaven as our courageous guardian angel. We are deeply grieving and are trying to piece our broken hearts together. We hope to continue making you proud of the legacy you left behind. We love you.

Dad, I can’t express how much we’re all hurting, & missing you at this very moment. Our hearts are broken into little pieces. We can’t look at a picture of you without breaking apart. Yes, I know with time it will heal, but you took a piece of our hearts the day you passed away. We still can’t believe you’re gone. Our Lord took you away, because of the wonderful, loving, giving, caring man you were. You instilled so many great values to each & everyone of us, & for that I thank you! We will see you everywhere because you still continue living inside of us. The link has been broken for now, but will be put together, when we reunite with you! Love you, & miss you dearly!

As the days slowly keep passing by, I still can’t believe that you aren’t here. I want to believe this is all a nightmare and that when I wake up, you will be sitting on your chair in the living room watching some western movies. I never knew my heart could break into so many pieces and I can honestly say that a part of me has died with you. I yearn to just have one more conversation with you and to give you one more big hug. Grandpa, I want to thank you for being my role model on what a hardworking and loving man looks like. I’m honored that I was able to experience having a grandfather who was caring, and involved as much as you. I know that you will be watching over me, guiding me throughout the rest of my life and I want you to know that I will miss you greatly. I am proud to be your granddaughter and I promise to make you proud. I love you Grandpa and miss you so much!

Suegro, more than 40 years ago, I had the pleasure of starting a beautiful, lifelong journey with your oldest daughter, Terrie. You, my Suegra and your entire family welcomed me with open arms into your home when you could have easily chosen not to. It quickly became clear to me that was never an option, that kind of behavior was never allowed in your home, I am forever endeared to you and yours for that. Great memories and good laughs are plentiful, there are so many to share with your grandchildren in your honor. Yes, I heard you growl like a grizzly bear, raise your voice on occasion and use some of your favorite choice words, however, it was not long before your heart of gold would show through. No matter the task, the situation, issue or discussion, the end result was a very common one, you were always there to find a solution. Thank you very much for being a supportive father in law, a fantastic grandfather and an inspiration to your great grandchildren, we are all blessed to have you ever present in our lives. Love always, Gil
