He is a native of Peña Blanca, Mexico, and a resident of Pass Christian, Mississippi. Humberto worked as a concrete contractor, he was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, grandfather, father-in-law, and mentor. He was such an inspiration to all his family and friends. He was one of a kind and known as “The Legend”, he was charismatic, rugged, and a real vaquero (cowboy). Humberto loved horses, was an excellent roper/lassoer and a natural horse trainer, he was so in tune with his horses, it was as if he was the horse whisperer. He loved good western movies, a good cup of coffee, and horseracing. He was a true craftsman in his trade and a very successful businessman. He was always well dressed in his cowboy hat and boots. Humberto imparted his lifelong wisdom with others, he was a man of great faith, and his personality filled a room. Our hearts are grateful to St. Josephs Hospice for the care of our beloved father.
