November 10, 1965 - September 9, 2014
On the day of his birth, November 10, 1965, he was christened Florentino De La Rosa. To his friends and family, he was just Tino, a serious man who brightened the lives of friends and family with his smile and his grace. Tino was a Christian who was willing to share the good news of the gospel to anyone who would listen.
Tino had a zest for life, a love of adventure and was always quick with a smile and a ready joke. He accepted who he was. And, he never took anything for granted. Tino’s unshakable strength of spirit guided his family surely and securely. He was a husband who adored the wife who became his soul mate. During their 30-year marriage, Tino and Olivia (Molina) laid a foundation of hope and strength of character for their children. Together they provided their children a place to grow up, to laugh and cry, to dream and strive for success on their on terms.
Tino’s character shone bright in other aspects of life. He was a professional mechanic, an avid gun collector, hunter, a weekend carpenter and an adventurous biker. He was a member of motorcycling club. His greatest joy was taking to the open road on his Chopper.
Florentino De La Rosa departed this life September 9, 2014.
