Over and over Hector watched his legacy grow bigger and bigger. He could not have been prouder. Blessed with 16 children, 37 grandchildren, 65 great-grandchildren and 24 great-great-grandchildren. They moved to Idaho in 1961. They ran and owned their store La Musicalatina. Hector and Ada were well known. Everyone that came in was treated like family. They were grandparents to everyone. Hector was a wise, loving, hard-working and very stubborn man. But being stubborn taught us if there is a will there is a way, it maybe difficult but there is a way.
Hector was called Home where he is reunited with the love of his life Ada, 8 children and 2 grandchildren.
