Auro Pio Bustillo (1934-2013)

Auro, 79, passed away at his home in San Jose, CA, surrounded by family on March 14, 2013. He was originally from Potosi, Bolivia. One of his great loves was engineering: he was the lead engineer in the first highway in La Paz, Bolivia. Auro graduated from the Universidad Tomás Frías (Potosi, Bolivia) and the University of Ohio. He worked for Caltrans into his 70's where he made some lifelong friends and enjoyed every minute of it!

Auro had a wonderful sense of humor and great love for life. He was well read and well traveled; he spoke several languages and was a master chess player; a teacher and philosopher, a devoted soccer fan and avid reader. But above all, Auro was a loving father, brother, grandfather and husband.

Surviving is his loving family: wife, Virginia; daughters, Pamela and Connie, sons-in-law, Shawn Vecellio and David Chapman; brother and sister Grover Bustillo and Irma Bustillo; sister-in-law Herminia Paz; nieces and nephews, Lola Paz, Margarito Paz and Victor Bustillo; grandchildren, Xavier, Arielle and Lolita.


He will be greatly missed …

Auro Pio Bustillo (1934-2013)

La familia lamenta anunciar el fallecimiento del Ingeniero Auro Bustillo, 79, en su residencia en San José, CA, el día 14 de marzo, 2013. Originario de Potosí, Bolivia, Auro, fue el ingeniero principal de la primer autopista en La Paz, Bolivia. Educado en la Universidad Tomás Frías(Potosí, Bolivia) y en Ohio State University (EE.UU.). Uno de sus grandes amores era la ingeniería. Como Ingeniero de Caltrans (EE.UU.) hasta su jubilación en 2009, Auro formo amistades de por vida.

Auro tenia un gran sentido del humor y amaba a la vida. Era leído y culto ; sabia muchas lenguas y era maestro en el juego de ajedrez; maestro y filosofo, un devota del futbol y lector voraz. Pero sobretodo, Auro era un padre, abuelo, hermano y esposo ejemplar y cariñoso.

Lo sobrevive su familia: esposa, Virginia; hijas, Pamela y Connie, yernos, Shawn Vecellio y David Chapman; hermanos Irma Bustillo y Grover Bustillo; cuñada Herminia Paz; sobrinos, Lola Paz, Margarito Paz y Victor Bustillo; nietos adorados, Xavier, Arielle y Lolita.

Guardaremos su recuerdo en nuestros corazones para siempre …
