Antonio worked as a welder for several years and attended St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church. He was a loving and kind father who would treat everyone with respect and would never hesitate to help someone in need. Antonio enjoyed traveling to Mexico to see his family, eat good food, make cheese, and watch his favorite telenovelas from time to time. He was also a snappy and elegant dresser who enjoyed the classic Ranchero look; he always pulled this look off very well. Antonio will be missed greatly by his loving family and many friends.
