Tucson late 1970's. We were boys building and cruising lowrider bikes. Big O was always like a big brother and watched out for us. Soon we were getting cars and joining the lowrider movement. Big O was always part of that scene. He is and will always be an icon in the Lowrider community ---- Picture is from a Lowrider Happening in Hayden Az 1979.

Big O was not only a dear friend but he made me a part of his family. He was on of the funniest men I have ever met. He always had a smart remark or a wise crack. He had the biggest heart ever. He was such an amazing father and grandfather. His personality and energy made people gravitate to him. It has been such a great privilege an honored to know you my friend and to have been a part of your life. May you rest in peace my backlog. I will carry you in my heart forever 💔
