Chuy had also worked as a plumber for many years. He enjoyed sports, especially Boxing and Baseball. So much so that he was a boxing coach and baseball umpire. He enjoyed being outdoors, spending time fishing, camping and the infamous “Corona Fridays” spent with his boys. Chuy will definitely be missed all who knew and loved him.
