His grandmother’s favorite, his grandfather’s pride
He liked to tease his grandmother. He would often tell her, “You know I’m your favorite grandson!”
He lived in the Grand Crossing neighborhood of Chicago, surrounded by a large and loving family. His friends and family described him as a “goofball” with a “very charismatic personality.” They remember his infectious laugh and warm hugs. His grandfather was proud of him.
