Patricia and Israel raised their three daughters in California to appreciate a diverse lifestyle, a good education and all the immense possibilities that California had to offer. He also loved the good year-round weather, but he never forgot his roots in San Patricio. It had a special place in his heart. Israel maintained his movie star good looks and his elegant style through out his life and he was known as a bit of a "clothes horse." He remained humble. He was a shy man with a sly sense of humor. Israel had an extensive music collection; some of his favorites were Elvis Presley, Linda Ronstadt, Johnny Cash, Lola Beltran and Stan Getz. Israel fought a courageous battle with Parkinson's disease. He passed and left this world the way he lived - quietly and gracefully.
