Armando “Mondo” married the Love of his Life, Tina, in 1991, and together they raised their seven beautiful children. Mondo was a Godly man and was Devoted to his Heavenly Father. He was a Wonderful husband and Amazing father. Mondo Loved, Adored and Cherished his wife, children and family. He enjoyed holidays and spending time with family and good friends. Mondo had a Heart of Gold and a Generous Spirit. He and Tina have been foster parents for 17 years. He was a jokester… life of the party… sometimes he didn’t have a filter, but it was always in playful fun and out of love. Mondo enjoyed dancing, listening to oldies, barbecuing, fishing, camping, movies, old cars and trucks (the faster the better). He was passionate about keeping his truck impeccably clean and an avid 49er fan!
Mondo was an exemplary, strong, hard-working man. Mondo’s professions included working at Firestone Tire Company in Salinas, construction at the Presidio of Monterey, landscaping and beautiful woodworking.
Mondo will definitely be remembered for his unforgettable laugh and debonair smile. We will Love and Cherish him in our Heart’s forever.
