    Perez Family Support Fund

    Today our world lost a true community hero.  A great father, husband, brother, son, coach, friend and so much more.   

    Santiago, Jr was a giver.  The giver of hugs, help, support, love, tri-tip and wisdom.  He would give help whenever needed.  He always put family first.  Now his family needs our support.   

    Mayra, Santiago lll and Bella need our help. Santiago, Jr was a patriarch beyond compare.  His heart was immense and his love for his family was boundless.  He coached both his children in their sports.   Well known by both DPLL and GVGSA as a fair, fun, thoughtful coach that would give his all for his kids.  

    Santiago Jr had just attained his dream of co-owning Thomas Towing.  He was a hard worker and good boss.  His legacy will live on. 

    We thank you for all you can give to the Perez family now.
