Many know him as Papi, Augusto, Dario, Pa, Hermano, Tio, or just Amigo. Whatever he is to you, you know this man to be one of the most charismatic, generous, happiest souls you've ever met. To know him, is truly to love him, because he loves you! Born in Ecuador, oldest of 8 siblings, father of 8 children, grandfather of 22, and great grandfather of 5, Papi is the family patriarch who exemplified dedication to hard work while still having the biggest heart. He immigrated to the United States with his family to find a better life, and he made it a better life for his children and generations to come. Papi is the life of the party, he loves to dance, he loves his family, and he has never turned his back on helping his fellow human. His ultimate strengths come from his willingness to be vulnerable and show he is never afraid to show his emotions - he is a true legend and hero. As he winds down this earthly journey, we wanted to create a space for family and friends to stay updated, share stories, and commemorate his accomplished life. Let's say thank you to this very special man, who we love!
5 months yesterday papi and I still can’t believe you’re gone. Ma struggles in your absence. She misses you tremendously but can’t understand where you are. Life has changed tremendously because there’s a piece of our hearts missing. I asked myself what is life when death can come at any time, at any moment, for anyone? How can we be whole when your not here? I hate it!!! Come and visit me and don’t be so stubborn. Xoxox 💔😢😡
