"Beto" was born January 17, 1955 in East Chicago, IN. He enjoyed attending Family Christian Center in Munster, IN. He had a great love for his father's '57 Chevy and a passion for music and drawing. Alberto looked forward to trips to Mexico with the family and loved being able to visit with his grandparents and aunts and uncles while there. Often times you would find him with a hand full of junk food, as it was his favorite. More than anything, Alberto enjoyed making people laugh with his unending sense of humor. He loved his family and he loved God.
