Donato Figueroa, 69, was born on October 25, 1951 in Guanajuato, Mexico and went to be his Lord and Savior on August 17, 2021. He was a loving Father, Grandfather, and Husband. He was brave, tough, honest, and intimidating man, he was always straight forward with everyone and at times for those reasons he could come off as mean, but on the contrary he was a very kind man as well. He struggled a bit to show us affection it wasn’t in his character but when those rare moments occurred, we would bask in them. He would make us laugh by doing silly things or randomly yelling. Donato always tried and when he realized he was being too tough on us he would let us know that he didn’t mean it in caring gestures. He was our protector he would do anything for us. His love for all of us goes beyond the stars and the moon. He has left our side, but he will forever be in our hearts and in our memories.
