He was most recently residing in Indio, CA but had community ties in both Santa Maria and Oxnard, CA where he dabbled in politics, community affairs and helping those who didn't have a voice. This big guy had a big heart and I should know. I'm his only daughter.
I'm calling on those near and far to help in any way you can by contributing to this memorial fund to help pay for funeral expenses as they have quickly added up. While my father was a Vietnam Veteran and will be receiving a military funeral, they do not cover the full expenses that come along with it. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Funeral arrangments should be confirmed shortly. I will post an update once information is available.
