OBITUARY

Antonio Cantu Sr.

Passed away on March 10, 2019

We want to thank everyone for your condolences thus far. We are honored to be able to celebrate my dads life and to invite all of you to share in his light with us.

Our Dad passed away on March 10th of this year at 1:40 in the morning with my sister Imelda Christina Cantu at his side. He went peacefully in his sleep. Earlier he was surrounded by all of my brothers and sisters as well as my mom, Imelda Cantu Martinez.

If you knew my dad you knew that he didn't stray from a good dad joke and he had a pretty spectacular sense of humor. He never cussed, worked extremely hard every day of his life, and was a man of few words...unless telling one of his horrible but great jokes. He was very proud of all of us and of all his grandchildren.

We'd love to invite all of you to celebrate his life with us. Come and share space and love with us as we reminisce on the good, the bad, and everything else. Without him, we would not be here and we are glad to have shared in such a full life.

My dad was passionate about a good meal so we will be honoring him with some of his favorites. Many of you have offered to share your beloved family recipes with us through home cooked meals and we know that my dad would have loved that so please bring what you can and fill your bellies with good food and great stories of a life filled with the ups and downs of living.

His favorite was Fried Chicken from Churches Chicken so there will be plenty of chicken, coffee, pan dulce and other brunch food and drinks. (No Alcohol permitted!) Feel free to bring food to share if you’d like! Daddy never turned down food even on his last weeks on earth! By the way daddy was not a fan of vegetables so even if you sneak some in well ....in his honor Galen his youngest grandson will not eat them!! Lol 😂 thank you again for all the love and condolences sent! Love to you all from all of us!
