Many who knew him well, knew he enjoyed playing his guitars and of his love for wine.
He was preceded in death by both his wife, Elvira Guaracha and daughter Dolores Navarrete.
He is survived by His son-in-law Jose Ruben Navarrete; grandchildren Ruben and Jessica Navarrete; granddaughter-in-law Lizeth Navarrete; and great-grandchildren Andre Navarrete , Xavier Navarrete, Nya Navarrete and Aliyah Banderas.
