On Saturday, November 21, 2009, my father passed away. He lived a great life and so much more than can fit on a small column. My dad served in the Vietnam War. He was first in his family to graduate high school. Dad was a huge Fresno State fan. SF Giants and SF 49ers fan. He brought true value to this world.
Papa will always be remembered as Santa Claus to his grandchildren, as they brought him his greatest joy in life. It was his pleasure to spoil them with love and whatever they wanted.
He is preceded in death by his father, Carlos Aleman; and his brothers, Miguel and Roberto. They are now all together again. May they bring each other comfort knowing that their children, grandchildren and loved ones will not forget and will continue to love each other unconditionally, as they have taught us.
He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Mary Aleman; his daughter, Susan and her husband James; his son Frank Jr. and Leekham; his daughter Cristina and her husband Hector; and his son Tony and Murrisa. Also his seven grandchildren James III, Matthew, Ryan, Mia, Tony Jr., Francisco Jesus Miguel III "Baby" and the youngest Nyssa Elly.
We will celebrate his life and we will always miss him.
