It is with heartfelt sympathy that I say to our family, I am truly sorry for the loss of Uncle Tato. His passion for his family and music was inspiring as was his warm heart and comical ways. His love for his brothers and sisters is unmatched. So many of us have memories of this kind and gentle man that it would take a book to fill from each of the nick names he gave everyone to the stories of yester-years. Uncle Tato was a hard working man and back in the day he was our very own technology guru. He was the first one to have a movie camera that he brought to every family function. Afterwards he would set up his reel to reel and play back the family video that had everyone laughing. Be it a family bbq or a sledding day with the cousins there he was recording it all. To say that he will be missed is an understatement, to know that he will be reunited with Ricky and Babel, his mom, dad and other siblings who have passed before him is comforting. What a wonderful reunion that must have been!!!! To my family I pray that you find peace and comfort within your hearts memories. To My Uncle Tato...you will truly be missed by all who truly loved you. I know that you were wrapped in Gods arms upon your arrival to heaven and that your pain is no more. RIP Tio.

Uncle Tato you will be missed by many. I'm glad to know that you are with Gma, Gpa, Babel, Ricky and other loved ones. You were a real funny man with lots of laughs and jokes just loved being around you when you were here in Texas. I'm happy my kids got to meet their great uncle. You will always be in my heart. Love you. May you rest in paradise. 💜
