The world loses a wonderful Man!!!

The world lost one of its greatest this week. Our Father, Jimmy Ontiveros, passed on October 5th in the late evening, from severe cardiac trauma. Those of you who knew him loved him. You couldn't help yourself. Every life he touch was filled with joy, cheer and love, thanks to his presence. Known as one of Santa Barbara's best Carpenters, Jimmy-O, as he was affectionately called by his friends and clients, was dedicated to the Perfection of his craft, equally matched only by his dedication to the love of his family. Our Father, Jimmy, was a lover of life and took joy in all its simple amenities. A wonderful father and loving husband there are no words to describe his graciousness. He was a true friend who built his relationships on things like honor, honesty and most importantly love. Jimmy was the most reliable companion one could have asked for in their life. Never one to abandon a friend in need Jimmy was always there with an open hand, never a closed fist. Jimmy, my dad, was not a wealthy man of money his wealth lay far beyond what we could ever imagine he was rich in love, caring, family and friends. Unfortunately due to his sudden passing Jimmy did not have all of his final Arrangements in order. We have to be strong and work together to keep our father's Legacy alive. Jimmy helped people in more ways than we will ever know. Now we are asking for your help. Every penny will go to our father's final expenses. Our family humbly asks that those of you that knew and loved him, to help us in any amount possible. Jimmy was a very rare breed, even his blood type was rare, the world is a little less brighter without him and humans such as he are in short supply. We will honor him and his legacy for those are the things that shall never die. We thank all those who can contribute and are deeply humbled by all the love and emotional support. We love you and please always remember Jimmy loves you too.
Thank you from all of us♡♡♡
