Nestor was a loving husband, a very supportive father who spoiled all his children and a doting grandfather. His grandchildren adored him. He enjoyed traveling and watching boxing and shows on HGTV as a pastime. Nestor was an active member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ). He was the 2nd Head Deacon in the Local Congregation of Great Lakes. He devoted his life in performing his duties at church and in helping with the needs of the local and the brethren. At church, he always wore his beautiful and contagious smile that greeted the brethren. As a mechanic, he enjoyed serving others and went out of his way to help everyone by fixing their cars during his free time. He was hardworking and there was a constant line of people at his garage during his days off. There was always laughter and funny jokes going around his shop and people always came back because of the quality of his work, his friendliness and his genuine kindness.
