He loved to visit his son, Kenya Santos, with the family... He loved to have gatherings in his home with his family. He loved to eat. Our dad had a nice smile. We were impressed by him because he was still youthful for his age... played football with grandsons, and he always went for walks. He always wore dress pants with a button up shirt and sneakers.
