Cayetano "Tano" Aguilar, 90, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on July 2, 2012. On this day, he joined his beloved wife Hortencia and dear son Armando in heaven. He worked for many years at ASARCO, during which time he also established and ran a lawn and garden business. The business flourished and upon retirement he dedicated all his time and effort to serving his clients. Tano was an inspiration to his sons who continue running the business with dedication and commitment, skills instilled in them by their hard working father. He will always be remembered for his dedication to hard work, loyalty to his family, enthusiasm when watching his Dodger team, and his friendly smile. There were no strangers in Tano's life, just new friends. He will be deeply missed by his children Raul, Salvador, Cayetano, Jr., Antonio, Hortencia and Alma. His 13 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren are left with cherished memories of their loving grandpa.
