My father was one of those people who was so “alive and tough’ that it is hard to believe he is not here. Joe was one of seven brothers, and he is shown here with Amalia (my grandma), Ernie, Al and Lou (3 of his brothers) My grandparents immigrated from Spain via ships and settled in Hayward near the Hunt’s factory near downtown. Hayward was the brother’s stomping grounds. My Dad was a Golden Gloves boxer and one tough son of a gun. We miss you!
