My sincerest condolences to the entire Anthony Madruga clan. Uncle Anthony was my mentor when I first became Captain of the Aquarius in 1973. I tied up across from his Spartan and he guided my learning experience. Always had the best tailgate spread at the Charger games. He always snuck me in the back kitchen door at the Hall for Festa. Here’s my dad, Uncle Anthony’s big brother Hallett Sr. with me at the 1992 Festa. Now they are together with Grandpa, Grandma, Aunt Kathy and Uncle Eddie. love you Uncle. R. I. P. Captain.

Dear family and loved ones, I was sorry to read about the passing of Mr. Madruga. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. It has helped me and many others to know that the Bible promises that soon God “will swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) and that He will bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones (John 5 : 28, 29) . May “the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,” comfort you during your time of sadness (2 Corinthians 1: 3).
