He was the grill master when it came time to BBQ, he had his own unique style, and he loved making his famous salsa. Can’t forget his love for his Ford bronco. He was that kind of person who was willing to help out whomever he can. He loved his morning cup of hot coffee and fresh donuts.He loved his cold beer on hot summer nights.
