He was the first of his family to immigrate to the United States in 1985, and lived in Los Angeles, California. He was later followed by his siblings, who always felt inspired and supported by his unconditional love. In 1991, he married his late wife, Nelly Cruz in Merida, Mexico and they welcomed their beloved daughter in 1993. He acquired his Real Estate and Broker License and lived in Los Angeles until 2000.
