Claudio, We went to Holy Family Grammar School together and graduated in 1956. You were a great guy then and reading your friends and families messages you never changed !! May the Good Lord Jesus Christ Keep you safe in the Palm of His Hand and seated next to Him in His mansion in the Sky. May you Rest in Peace and May the Good Lord bless you and your family. Your friend for more than 70 + years, Stanley Chavez

When your dad died in 2002 it so happened I was here in CA and now this time I´m also here. I asked one of my niece if you have seen my cousins, she said no but later she googled and was so surprised to read the obituary. So, Jr you really want me to attend your memorial service. RIP cousin.

In loving memory of my "big brother". I have fond memories of family gatherings and playing tennis with you at Banning Park. I will miss your laugher, lunches with the cousins, and you showing me dance steps. Rest in Peace, dear Cuz!

Worked w/ Claudio at Luckys/Alb many years. Talk about upbeat and happy full of good vibes. I´m sure I had a dance or two with him over the years at parties. Sweet soul!!
