He had a great work ethic that began when working with his parents in the fields during summer breaks. He also worked at the family restaurant “Poncho’s Place” with his parents. He last worked for Cal OES for 16 ½ years.
In February of 2002 he was blessed with his one and only daughter Ariana. And just recently in November of 2022 he became a grandfather to his one and only granddaughter, Aurora, who is 3 months old.
Some of his passions included fishing and CB radios (his CB handle “KG6LYN”)
