As far as I can remember, Tio made our moments together memorable. Always a positive outlook on life, no matter the circumstances. Deeply missed, but I know that he lived his life to the fullest, no regrets. RIP Tio.

Dear Daniel and family,
We are saddened by your dad's passing. We have fond memories of his visits to all our families here in FL and his great sense of humor and genial personality. A great uncle, he would send us toys down to Bolivia when we were kids. We know that he lived a life well lived and loved his children deeply. Our deepest condolences. A great guy. Sleep well tio, we will always remember you.
