Tony came to the United States at the age of 17 from Zacatecas, Mexico. He joined the “Bracerro Program” during WWII in 1942 which brought him to the US. He was assigned to work in US Agriculture here in the South Bay. He worked many jobs in Redondo Beach and eventually worked in the Dairy Industry and retired after 30 years. He purchased a home in Redondo Beach in 1951 and lived there happily with his wife and children. In 2008 Tony became a US Citizen. He was beloved by all and lived a very blessed and extremely happy life.
