Chino was so full of life, love, laughter and fun. His biggest sense of pride was his daughter Jace Lynn. He had so many plans for her future and was so excited to be her Daddy. Chino, his Auntie, Uncle and our family would hike and drive, camp in the mountains hunting for Sasquatch. It was a great pastime of ours. Never found him but got the heck scared out of us a few times.
In high school Chino drew a lot. He was an awesome artist. He loved basketball, and was a good player for Two Eagle. As he grew he got into boxing and loved that too. He belonged to a boxing club at the VFW in polson. Chino was also teaching his young nephew Antoine how to box.
