Lupe was the most loving kindhearted crazy unselfish man as a husband, father and grandfather to his family. He was an animal lover, whether it be a stray cat, an abandoned dog, birds or whichever animal crossed his path he would care and feed it well. His family could never take him a steak dinner because he would gladly feed it to his animals before himself. Lupe loved to watch old western cowboy movies and tell larger than life stories to his grandchildren. Lupe was a blessing in our lives and leaves us with so many amazing memories and his kind big heart will live with us forever.
