Angel was a loving father, grandfather, brother and Uncle. He was the meaning of a family man. His journey to the United States began at a very young age as he worked throughout the northeast in farms from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania to support his family. Finally making Ellenville his home for the next 46 years, Angel and his wife Dolores (Bea) were business owners of Lou's Center Food Market and Spring Glen Grocery. Angel was a man that graciously extended all that he had to help a family member or friend in time of need. He took great pride in his hard work and never let anything hinder his accomplishments. Angel and Dolores were pillars in the Latino community of Ellenville. Angel was admired by many family and friends. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Angel's example of compassion and generosity can be seen throughout his beautiful family. Thank you for setting such a fine example of a loving human being.
