Dad worked tirelessly as a baker for all of his life, making bread for everyone, everyday. His humor and wit continuously made us laugh. His compassion for all was beyond comparison. He taught us to provide for our families and to care for all who are hungry and in need. He accepted everyone equally. His daily devotion and passion for the care of his wife, especially in her last years, was inspirational and Christ like. He prayed for all his children and their families, each by name, every night. His love never dies. Our father will live in our hearts forever. Memorial contributions can be made to El Buen Pastor, PO Box 7334, San Antonio, Texas 78207 (financial contributions only).
