Armando was born in Mexico. He always had a smile on his face and would give you a thumbs-up. He loved to tell jokes and make his family and friends laugh. He danced to life and lived to the fullest. Being a over the road truck driver for most of his life, he reflected on the beauty of wherever he went. He loved writing short poems to his life adventures, some of which where put to music and played on a radio station for many to enjoy. He fought his way through some of the toughest things in life. He was a fun loving and devoted Father, Pappas and friend to many and will be missed by all.
