He lived in California for some time, returning back to Tucson in the 1970s. Cuco was a loving husband and father, grandfather and great-grandfather.


Having worked at many occupations, his favorite work were the things he accomplished at home. He loved getting the family together to have a fun time, especially on the 4th of July.

We will miss his sense of humor, bright smile and loving hugs!
