TV, as he was affectionately known by all who knew him, was an accomplished boxer in his lifetime and very well respected amongst the Eastside community. He spent many a day at the Pan Am Rec Center where he met many lifelong friends, including the love of his life, Rachel. He worked for the City of Austin for over 20 years and retired after a long career. TV was a proud grandfather and made sure to never miss a birthday or graduation. Every one of his grandchildren knew what the yellow envelope was.
