Alfonso Madrigal, 59 years old, passed away peacefully with family in hand in his beloved home. He is the father of Jesus Madrigal who passed years prior, and is survived by his living children; Noel, Leslie, John, and Ashley Madrigal who will continue to carry the shining light that embodied his persona.
He came, at the age of 15, to the United States from Mexico with the goal of working to support family back home and achieving the American dream. Being a such a hard worker, no task was too tall or too challenging for him with the love and drive that was provided by his family. A man of few hobbies but an undying interest, he strived to always try something at least once whilst always carrying the same shining smile he was known for. His spirit will forever more shine bright in death as it did in life. His love will warm, heal, and care for the hearts of his family and friends for all eternity. He will be forever missed but never forgotten. His good will continue to bless the earth with the values and ideals that he instilled in his children. He never knew a life without laughter and always worked to familiarize everyone else with that as well. To the strongest man, the smartest man, the funniest man, and the man that the world needed, may he rest in peace alongside the Lord and look upon us all until we meet him again in the Lord's paradise. Praise be to the Lord for the gift that he bestowed on this earth by the name of Alfonso Madrigal.
